Who Do You Trust? is the tenth studio album by American rock band Papa Roach. It was released on January 18, 2019, through Eleven Seven Music.[1] It features 12 tracks, including the lead singles "Renegade Music" and "Who Do You Trust?" The album was announced along with the release of the track "Not the Only One".[1] The album was leaked and it has been entirely online since December 15, 2018.

Music[edit]

Frontman Jacoby Shaddix told Rock Sound that because the band's plan to tour with Of Mice & Men fell through due to lead singer Austin Carlile getting sick, the band went into the studio to record: "So we went in and created five or six songs. Then we went back in June and July and took another stab at it. We have 12 songs – there's bangers in there."[2] Bassist Tobin Esperance stated that the band's goal for the album "was to push ourselves even further into genres that inspire us most. We have reached the place where we always wanted to be, creating new and exciting music". The two lead singles have been said to feature Papa Roach's "signature heavy rhythmic guitars and catchy hooks", while "Not the Only One" contains "melody and emotionally charged lyrics".[3]

Promotion[edit]

"Renegade Music" and the title track "Who Do You Trust?" were released on October 5, 2018 with Loudwire calling the former a "driving new anthem" and the latter "aggressive and catchy".[4] "Not the Only One" accompanied the release of the album's details.[1]

Reception[edit]

Wall of Sound rated the album 8/10 stating: "Papa Roach just continue to evolve and kill the game with being inventive, but with that old school spirit, such a hard task to do for some."[5]
