Papa Roach frontman JACOBY SHADDIX was so depressed with the sales figures for the LOVEHATE TRAGEDY album, he turned to alcohol to numb the pain.

The LP barely sold 500,000 copies and the hard life of touring to promote a failing album took its toll on Shaddix.

He says, "It got ugly. The others were saying, 'Slow down,' and I was like, 'No, speed it up motherf***er.'"

Shaddix claims that he quit after one heavy evening.

He adds, "Boom-boom-boom, some shakes, and I was done."
