Jacoby Shaddix, the frontman of Papa Roach, has no interest in side projects outside of the band.

In a recent interview with Q101, Shaddix explained why he focuses solely on Papa Roach:

“The reason I don’t have side projects or do anything outside of the band is because we get to scratch every itch we have with Papa Roach. If we want to write something metal, we can write something that feels metal. If we want to write something that’s pop-rock, we do that.”

Papa Roach’s Musical Versatility

Shaddix elaborated on the band’s versatility and what sets them apart:

“What I mean is if I want to rap, throw down, spit some bars, I do that. So it’s like we get to scratch all the itches within Papa Roach, and I feel that’s what really sets us apart. When we’re making records, I want them to feel like a playlist.”

Shaddix’s Aspirations for a Stadium Tour

Shaddix’s confidence in the band’s potential extends to ambitious future goals. In a recent interview with Germany’s Rock Antenne, he shared his vision for Papa Roach:

“I think, eventually, at some point in our time, the stadium tour. At some point in our career. That’s the major goal. That’s like the endgame goal. I’ve been talking to some friends and other bands about these things because we saw Metallica, the Big Four, go out and do that. I’m like, ‘All right, who the f*ck is the next Big Four?’ I want to be a part of that, and that’s something for me. That is definitely a goal. I think that it’s something in our career we can pull off.”

In July 2023, during an interview with Lazer 103.3, Shaddix also compared Papa Roach to Metallica, suggesting they might carry on their legacy. He mentioned seeing bands like Foo Fighters, Korn, and Deftones in a similar position.
