PAPA ROACH ENLIST BALLET TROUPE FOR ‘NONE OF THE ABOVE’ VIDEO
5 APRIL 2018
Papa Roach have released a surprise music video for ‘None Of The Above’, the eighth video released from their latest album, ‘Crooked Teeth’.
It was shot on location at Beaufort Castle in Luxembourg and features the DanceXperience ballet troupe. It was directed by Bryson Roatch and choreographed by esteemed urban dance choreographer Alex Lopes.
Bassist Tobin Esperance tells us:
“We actually wrote ‘None Of The Above’ near the end of recording the album ‘Crooked Teeth’. 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.”
Bryson Roatch adds:
“We wanted to create something you would not normally see from a rock band. It was amazing and such an honour to work with other artists from a different culture and see their passion.”
‘Crooked Teeth’, Papa Roach’s ninth studio album, was released in May 2017 and debuted in the Top 20 in the US and UK main charts, as well as at #1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, reaching over 200 million streams worldwide. The album earned Papa Roach two #1 singles on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart with the lead single, ‘Help’, reigning atop the chart for six straight weeks. ‘Born For Greatness’ can be heard weekly as the theme song for WWE’s ‘Monday Night Raw’.
Over the last sixteen months, Papa Roach have taken the ‘Crooked Teeth’ experience global, touring extensively throughout Europe, Australia, North America and South America. The band just wrapped up a successful run with A Day To Remember on the ’15 Years In the Making’ tour where they played to 100,000 fans over the course of eighteen shows.
Papa Roach are ready to bring even more of their headlining might to intimate venues in North America featuring support from Nothing More and Escape The Fate. Tickets are selling fast, with five sold-out shows on the leg, and eight more with limited tickets remaining. The band then head to Europe for a handful of festival appearances including the Reading & Leeds festivals in August.
