Heavy metal outfit Papa Roach are vowing not to split up - even though their last album LOVEHATETRAGEDY bombed.

The rock quartet failed to match the huge success of debut longplayer INFEST with last year's (02) offering, but that hasn't stopped them demoing material for a third album.

And frontman JACOBY SHADDIX admits he feels under great pressure.

He says, "It's a motherf****** pressure. But f**k, it's not like we're over! We're at a crucial point in our career and the new album is going to take things to the next level.

"All I can do is be confident about myself and what we do. This album is a very, very important record for our band. We have to push it."
