After a worldwide premiere of the single on BBC’s Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter earlier this week, iconic rock band Papa Roach have unveiled their swagger-packed motorcade music video Directed by Darren Craig (Slipknot, Rihanna, Big Sean, Justin Timberlake) for their new track “Swerve”. The high-octane thrill ride featuring the outspoken frontman of Fever 333, Jason Aalon, and rising LA-based rapper Sueco is the first track pulled from the band’s forthcoming studio album.
“This track came at the very end of the writing process for our upcoming album and truly feels like the culmination of years of experimenting with our sound coming back to a new version of Papa Roach,” shares Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix. “Filming this music video with Jason and Sueco was one of the most fun experiences we’ve had and I am so excited to share it with the world.”
The genre-bending banger was produced by Colin “Doc” Brittain and Nick Furlong (All Time Low, A Day To Remember, Avicii), and features the saxophone stylings of co-collaborator Spencer Nezey, showcasing Papa Roach’s bravado at an all-time high.
