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.”

“We wanted to create something you would not normally see from a rock band,” says director Bryson Roatch, “It was amazing and such an honour to work with other artists from a different culture and see their passion.”
Papa Roach set out to push the boundaries of their genre with their ninth studio album, Crooked Teeth. Released in May 2017, the album 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, cumulating over 200 million streams worldwide. Crooked Teeth 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 as well as Born For Greatness, which has been prominently featured on top Spotify playlists such as “Rock This” and “Beast Mode” and can be heard weekly as the theme song for WWE’s Monday Night Raw.
