Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach has a new beginning. He’s three years sober and about to release a personal batch of music that he’s very proud of. A man with new purpose and direction for his band.
Before their set in Philadelphia at Electric Factory, we climbed aboard the Papa Roach bus to talk about their new album “F.E.A.R“, the fifteenth anniversary of “Infest“, and everything in between.
This year Manchester Orchestra released their heaviest album in “Cope“, then quietly released the same batch of tunes in a stripped down and beautiful effort titled “Hope“.
More than just an acoustic album, “Hope” was on full display Saturday night on the campus of Temple University.
But first, we gathered in a bathroom backstage to talk about music, and maybe take a shower.
Before Ms. Lauryn Hill hit the stage at Electric Factory in Philadelphia this weekend, it was the one and only Talib Kweli.
After leading the crowd through a career-spanning set, we caught up with legendary MC to talk about the state of Hip Hop, the path of Kanye, and his relationship with Spotify.
