Papa Roach Talk Tainted ‘American Dreams’ in New Song
The flood gates have opened! Papa Roach are revealing yet another new song from their upcoming ninth studio album, Crooked Teeth, and it’s the track “American Dreams.”
After starting with a solitary guitar strum, the song evolves into a larger wall of guitar, then pulls back for Jacoby Shaddix to provide more forceful, rhythmic verses before we get to the more melodic and anthemic chorus.
“Something’s wrong here / Or so it seems / Cause I’m not sleeping in American Dreams,” belts Shaddix, before adding, “American lies / We’re trying to see through the smoke in our eyes / So give me the truth / Don’t tell me your lies / Cause it’s harder to breathe / When you’re buried alive by American Dreams.”
The song is the fifth track to surface from the Crooked Teeth album ahead of the May 19 street date, following on the heels of the title track, the current single “Help” and the songs “Born for Greatness” and “Periscope.” The album will be released by Eleven Seven Music and is available in standard and deluxe editions.
The deluxe edition includes a bonus disc of live material collected during a performance at the Fillmore in Detroit. You can pre-order the Crooked Teeth via Amazon and iTunes and there are also a variety of add on options via the band’s PledgeMusic site.
Look for Papa Roach back on the road later this month kicking off a mix of festival and headlining dates. See all of their scheduled shows here.
