Rock berserkers and multi hit-makers Papa Roach have announced the title of their hotly anticipated 2012 album.

The Connection is set for release on October 1  via Eleven Seven Music. The new album was recorded at the band’s hometown studio, The Red House, in Sacramento, CA and was produced by rock veteran James Michael (Sixx:A.M., Halestorm) and John Feldmann (Panic at the Disco, The Used, Escape the Fate).

Last month, Papa Roach gave fans details on their sixth album during a live chat, hosted on the band’s website which saw frontman Jacoby Shaddix, guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo interact with fans from around the world. 

The first single from The Connection will be Still Swingin’ (produced by Feldman), which millions of sports fans soaked up during last night’s Major League Baseball All Stars Home Run Derby on ESPN.  The track will be featured by ESPN/MLB in select games/events for the next few weeks.

Still Swingin is due for release on September 2 but to hear a snippet of the track and catch some behind-the-scenes footage of the band filming its video in New York City click here:  http://youtu.be/rjcU16m9Xrs
