Papa Roach Premier Official Video for ‘Still Swingin’ [VIDEO]
Papa Roach have premiered the official video for their single “Still Swingin’,” the first single off their album The Connection, which arrives in stores October 2nd.
Part of the footage from the video has the band playing on a rooftop in New York City, and the other half shows a man battling zombies with a beam of lightening that shoots from his hands. As you can imagine, going to war with the undead would become tiring, but the guy is still swingin’ in the end, getting rid of those nasty flesh-eaters.
Jacoby Shaddix hasn’t made it a secret that a lot of the band’s new album was inspired by his issues with sobriety and marital problems, so zombies don’t really fit that bill. It’s been suggested that Shaddix’s seven-year-old son came up with the idea to do a Walking Dead-spin on the video.
Shaddix has also talked recently about what “Still Swingin’” means to the band:
It is the most important statement for the band. I think it just says a lot about P-Roach… we're the band that no matter what we're up against, we're gonna prevail.
For now, Papa Roach has cancelled plans to be a part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival due to Shaddix’s problems with a node that formed on his vocal cord. Despite attempts to get rid of it without surgery, he’ll need to go under the knife, meaning that he won’t be singing for a while.
In the meantime, we can watch him singin’ and swingin’ below:
