PAPA ROACH RELEASE POLITICALLY CHARGED “AMERICAN DREAMS” VIDEO

 Papa Roach may be on a brief hiatus while singer Jacoby Shaddix recovers from vocal cord surgery, but the band has managed to release a new music video for the song “American Dreams.” Shaddix said that the song and clip sum up how he feels about what’s going on in the country these days: “It’s right on point right now with what’s going on in American politics and the s**tshow theatre of American politics. People are just like, ‘Come on, we just want some truth.’ It’s like smoke and mirrors. It’s like they’re playing this charades game for people and it’s like, ‘We can tell that you’re doing this. Give us some truth.'” Shaddix explained in a statement about the clip and song, “America is struggling, America is divided, America is hurting right now. We’re at a fever pitch of confusion, smoke and mirrors, blatant lies. The American Dream is on the chopping block.” He added, “Have you ever thought that war was a sickness? My father is a Vietnam veteran. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the disintegration of the American family are things I’ve dealt with personally. I know other people relate.” The video for “American Dreams” was shot in Shaddix’s Northern California hometown of Sacramento and features a cast of real-life Americans fighting to create their own version of the elusive American Dream, while addressing many of the issues preventing them from attaining that dream. The track is taken from Papa Roach’s ninth album, Crooked Teeth, which came out in May. The song currently sits at Number Eight on the rock radio chart. Papa Roach recently canceled all remaining shows for the month of August as Shaddix went under the knife to undergo surgery on his vocal cords. Shaddix previously had surgery in 2012 to remove a nodule on his vocal cord.
