In yet another showing of their deep catalogue, iconic, multi-platinum rock band PAPA ROACH have shared a brand new, remastered version of their 2015 release, “Broken As Me”, inviting vocalist Danny Worsnop from British rock group Asking Alexandria to feature on the song. Said Papa Roach’s lead singer Jacoby Shaddix:
“He’s been on our list for a while, and having just toured together, we thought of Danny first when listening to some of the deeper cuts on the album. With the pandemic in full swing, Danny was down right away. He’s one of the best vocalists in rock music, so we’re happy he said yes”.
“Making music with my friends is something I always love and enjoy so when Jacoby called me about doing something together I was in right away. The Papa Roach guys have been close friends for a long time now and I’m glad they were able to see that the only thing holding them back from stardom all these years was not having me sing on a new version of one of their songs. I think this is really going to put them on the map and from the bottom of my heart, they’re welcome!”.
The track, with such emotionally charged lyrics and raw, powerful vocals from both artists is set to be included on their second greatest hits collection, “GREATEST HITS VOL. 2: THE BETTER NOISE YEARS”, out March 19 on Better Noise Music. Check out the re-energized version of “Broken As Me” in the lyric video or streaming HERE.
“GREATEST HITS VOL. 2: THE BETTER NOISE YEARS” features 21 tracks including 12 of the band’s recent Top 10 singles released between 2010-2019 through Better Noise Music. The set also includes previously unreleased remixes and acoustic recordings recorded Live at YouTube Studios in NYC. This set marks the Sacramento band’s second greatest hits collection, a benchmark seldom reached by contemporaries — their first comprising their time from 1999 – 2009 on Interscope Records—“…To Be Loved – The Best of Papa Roach”
The first single from the album, “The Ending (Remastered 2020)”, was released last November. It was accompanied by a haunting music video comprised of footage from the upcoming BETTER NOISE FILMS horror-thriller movie “THE RETALIATORS” which debuts in the Autumn and will feature vocalist JACOBY SHADDIX’s motion picture debut. Guitarist Jerry Horton shares:
“We wanted to commemorate the last 10 years of our journey with a sampling of the music that got us here. None of it could have been possible without the support of all of our families, our friends, or team and most of all, you–our fans”.
