Papa Roach spent some time in the studio with the Neptunes last week, recording a song for the soundtrack to “Biker Boyz,” starring Laurence Fishburne and Kid Rock.
Jacoby Shaddix and company shacked up with producers du jour Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo in Los Angeles’ Record Plant, according to a DreamWorks Records spokesperson. The resulting track, tentatively titled “Don’t Look Back,” is slated for the “Biker Boyz” soundtrack, due January 28. The album’s other tracks had not been finalized at press time.
“Biker Boyz” stars Fishburne as Manuel “Smoke” Galloway, leader of a black motorcycle club. Rock, following up roles as a white-trash bully in “Joe Dirt” and the voice of “Kidney Rock” in “Osmosis Jones,” will appear in his biggest role yet.
Following a pair of radio festivals this week, Papa Roach will embark on a headlining tour next month in Seattle. The band’s second major-label album, Lovehatetragedy, featuring the singles “She Loves Me Not” and “Time and Time Again,” has sold more than a half-million copies since June.
