Papa Roach have released a surprise music video for “None of The Above”.  It is the eighth video released from their latest album Crooked Teeth and was shot on location at Beaufort Castle in Luxembourg, featuring the DanceXperience ballet troupe. It was directed by Bryson Roatch and choreographed by esteemed urban dance choreographer Alex Lopes.

“We actually wrote ‘None of The Above’ near the end of recording the album Crooked Teeth,” says bassist Tobin Esperance, “We were going for a classic rock-sounding anthem, juxtaposed with current, contemporary, sounds and taking a rock anthem to a younger generation.  Bryson had this great idea of going to a castle while we were on our European tour and then he made us even more excited by telling us that he could get this song choreographed and he delivered on all counts.”

The track itself is a quite unsual mix. Starting with a strong contemporary hip hop vibe it quickly employs a dirty rock n roll riff to keep things interesting. It still has it’s pop feel to it which Papa Roach do in spades, and will no doubt hit the mark with their intended audience. Even if the video is a bit weird.

“We wanted to create something you would not normally see from a rock band,” says director Bryson Roatch, “It was amazing and such an honor to work with other artists from a different culture and see their passion.”

Despite Crooked Teeth being out for a whole year now, the band are still touring it heavily and will be playing more US and EU shows this year on their world tour.
