As previously reported, the album was produced by Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine) and recorded at his Atlanta studio.

Other confirmed tracks for the album, the follow-up to 2000's "Infest," include "Sid," "Black Clouds," "Time and Time Again," and "Decompression Period." While details for a summer tour are still being finalized, the group is set to perform April 27 at the California Music Awards in Oakland, Calif., at which group members Jerry Horton and Tobin Esperance are nominated for outstanding rock guitarist and outstanding rock bassist, respectively.

"Infest" peaked at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 3.2 million copies in the U.S. to date, according to SoundScan. The album featured the single "Last Resort," which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart and No. 4 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks tally.

A DVD chronicling the band's rise to prominence is due this summer. In other Papa Roach news, frontman Jacoby Shaddix and his wife recently welcomed their first child, a boy named Makaile Cielo.
