It’s always so exciting when a band you’re a fan of comes out with new music. So it was really cool to see the Michigan nu-metal rocker TAPROOT drop a new song last month.

Though there have been some line up changes since reforming, the band consists of original members Stephen Roberts, bassist Phil Lipscomb, and original returning drummer Jarrod Montague, with new guitarist Taylor Richards.

Directed by Thom Hazaert and edited by Ewar Acosta and Yando Coy, the video was released at the end of October and features an eerie house that is just in time for the spooky season. The house where the video was filmed on location at BUFFALO BILL’S HOUSE in Perryopolis, PA. This was where the iconic film Silence of The Lambs was filmed. The video also features footage from filmed in their hometown of Grand Rapids.

“Favourite Song” is a nice transition of hard rock riffs with sing-along choruses. It effortlessly walks a line between hard hitting riffs the group is known and bouncy upbeat melodies that can appeal to old school fans as well as those looking for a catchy sound.

This song is features Elias Soriano of Nonpoint. It is off the band’s latest release SC\SSRS out now. Produced by guitarist/vocalist Stephen Richards at The Loft in Saline, MI, and mixed by Matt LaPlant (Nonpoint, Skindred), this is the first album fully written and recorded by Richards, and the band’s first studio release since 2012’s The Episodes.

The band is also on tour in support of the latest release SC\SSRS (see dates below)

TAPROOT also recently released Best of Besides, a 17-track collection of remastered demos and rarities, mastered by Richard Easterling (Tantric, Zen From Mars) that hit stores and digital May 5th.

About Taproot

Taproot formed in 1997 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and went on to sign to Atlantic Records, releasing their Ulrich Wild (Static-X, Pantera, Mindless Self Indulgence) produced debut album GIFT in 2000, followed by extensive touring including appearances on Ozzfest 2000 and 2001, and tours with Deftones, Incubus, Papa Roach, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Disturbed, and Linkin Park.

The band’s sophomore release Welcome, their first pairing with legendary producer Toby Wright (Alice in Chains, Metallica, Korn, Primus) which Rolling Stone called, “a self-preserving transition from new metal to art metal”, went on to sell over 500,000 copies and spawn the hit Rock singles “Poem”, which peaked at #5 on the Mainstream Rock charts, and “Mine”, helping propel Welcome to over 50 million digital streams. The band would continue heavy touring with Alien Ant Farm, Chevelle, joining Disturbed on the Music As A Weapon Tour, and Linkin Park. Vocalist Stephen Richards would also appear on the track “P5hng Me A*wy” on Linkin Park’s 2002 remix album REANIMATION.

2005 saw the release of Blue-Sky Research, also helmed by Wright, the band’s final release for Atlantic, which spawned the hit radio single “Calling”, co-written with FAR vocalist Jonah Matranga, and saw the band collaborate with Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Nick Hexum (311), and Stephen Carpenter (Deftones), with heavy touring again, with the likes of Chevelle, Staind, P.O.D., and Flyleaf.

Taproot released several more full-length studio albums, including 2008’s Our Long Road Home (Velvet Hammer), 2010’s Plead The Fifth (Victory),with the single “Fractured (Everything I Said was True” reaching the top 20 on the Active Rock Chart, and 2012’s The Episodes, while continuing to tour consistently through 2013, when the band went on an indefinite hiatus, returning only to play a sporadic handful of local Michigan shows, before reforming officially this year.
