PAPA ROACH GUITARIST TO PUBLISH BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Papa Roach guitarist Jerry Horton said in a new interview conducted last week at England's Reading & Leeds Festivals that he will be publishing a book of his own photography in the near future, according to Blabbermouth. Horton explained, "It's in the works. I enjoy photography on an amateur level and being fortunate enough to travel everywhere, I wanna take advantage of it."
Horton added, "I don't necessarily have any sort of focus on any one particular thing; I just shoot whatever strikes me -- landscapes, portraits -- and somebody within our camp said, 'You need to do something with this stuff.' So we're gonna try and put out a book."
Horton also spoke about the recording process for the band's eighth studio album, F.E.A.R. (Face Everything And Rise), which is due out in early 2015.
He revealed that the band worked with two producers, Kevin Churko and his son Kane, saying, "We did the first five songs with Kevin, the dad, and then the last seven with the son, because (Kevin) had a prior engagement with In This Moment . . . It was a different sort of workflow, but we got into it and it was cool. And I think we came out with some really good stuff."
F.E.A.R. was recorded in Las Vegas, with Horton saying, "It was incredibly dry. Each one of us had humidifiers in our bedrooms. We felt our skin cracking."
The new disc will follow up 2012's The Connection. The title track will serve as the first single, while an exact release date and tour plans are all to be revealed later.
