Papa Roach Fight Hunger & Homelessness Through Hidden Track

On August 31st, the new album from Papa Roach “Time For Annihilation…On the Record and On The Road’ drops and the band has included a hidden track that will encourage fans to support the end of hunger and homelessness through organizations like WhyHunger (who have been fighting against hunger and poverty since 1975).  The message personally recorded by frontman Jacoby Shaddix, encourages fans to do their part to fight hunger and homelessness. On the track, Shaddix asks fans to take out their phones and text a number for WhyHunger in order to donate $5 to the organization.

The cause hits close to home for P-Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix who was homeless during his childhood. Shaddix will also be recording a PSA for WhyHunger to help raise awareness for their free National Hunger Hotline (1-866-3-HUNGRY).  For more information on WhyHunger, please visit “It’s really important to us to continue our partnership with WhyHunger and offer support in any way we can.  It’s all about finding new ways to spread the word and raise awareness and this is the first time we’ve ever done something like this on an album.  If one person listens to it and does something to help, we’ve done our job,” says frontman Jacoby Shaddix.

    A hidden track? If you’re gonna fight hunger and homelessness do you want to keep it hidden? Why not make a big deal out of it and release it as a single, sell single copies, raise money, make a spectacle out of it.

    Raising awareness through hidden tracks sounds counterproductive.
