Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix Speaks On Impact Of “Last Resort” & Recovering From Pandemic Relapse

Lead vocalist and founding member of Papa Roach, Jacoby Shaddix virtually stopped by to chat with New & Approved host Matt Pinfield.

Jacoby speaks on the decades-spanning success he and his group have seen over the years as he celebrates the latest offering of the band’s volume 2 greatest hits release, which he says is a testament to the relationship Papa Roach has established with their fanbase.

As the greatest hits compilation is a nod to their longevity and impact, Jacoby goes on to share the importance of their groundbreaking single “Last Resort”. Featured in a Vice documentary, the singer explains that being a part of the documentary allowed him to relive and reflect on the impact of the iconic song, as the record shines a light on mental health issues.

The band has also seen a resurgence with the song as Tik Tok has a hand in introducing Roach to a younger generation of listeners. Jacoby goes on to speak his acting debut with a role in the upcoming The Retaliators film, transparently comments on his struggle with a relapse during the covid-19 pandemic, and much more.
