PAPA ROACH Enlists Luxembourg Ballet Troupe For 'None Of The Above' Music Video
March 29, 2018
PAPA ROACH has released a surprise music video for "None Of The Above", a song from the band's latest album, "Crooked Teeth". The clip, which was shot on location at Beaufort Castle in Luxembourg while the band was on tour in Europe, features 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 '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."
"We wanted to create something you would not normally see from a rock band," says Roatch. "It was amazing and such an honor to work with other artists from a different culture and see their passion."
Over the last 16 months, PAPA ROACH has 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 18 shows. PAPA ROACH is ready to bring even more of their headlining might to intimate venues in North America in April and May, featuring support from NOTHING MORE and ESCAPE THE FATE.
"Crooked Teeth" was released in May 2017 via Eleven Seven Music. The disc was written and recorded in a cramped North Hollywood studio with producers Nicholas "RAS" Furlong and Colin Brittain, with the exception of "Born For Greatness", which saw the band collaborate with writer/producer Jason Evigan (Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, Zedd, MAROON 5).
