(TRR) – Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix has launched a new clothing line Lovers Are Lunatics. The passion project sees the singer team up with designer Jeff Henry with the mission “to create a brand that represents the rock community and showcases their unique creative vision.” The rock-inspired streetwear clothing company opened up shop this week.
“I love Papa Roach — don’t get me wrong — but I wanna do other things outside of PAPA ROACH that keep my creative [juices] moving,” Shaddix said of the new venure.
Papa Roach exploded onto the mainstream scene in 2000 with their major label debut, Infest, which was certified triple-platinum and hit #5 on the Billboard Top 200. The band’s next 4 albums would all debut in the Top 25 on the Billboard Top 200. The band’s 2002 album Lovehatetragedy hit #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and went platinum. Papa Roach tightened up their sound in 2004 on Getting Away With Murder. The album spawned two monster singles – “Getting Away With Murder” and “Scars.”
In 2011, Papa Roach played Sonisphere alongside Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Linkin Park, and more. In 2012, the band contributed a new single “Even If I Could” to the soundtrack for Marvel’s blockbuster film The Avengers. Their last record, The Connection, was released on October 2, 2012, and hit #17 on the Billboard Top 200. Papa Roach’s new album F.E.A.R. is set to drop on January 27 via Eleven Seven Music and has been one of the most anticipated rock records of 2015.
