Papa Roach Unveil Official Music Video for “Periscope” Featuring Skylar Grey

PAPA ROACH unveil their official music video for “Periscope,” the third official music video from their recently released album “Crooked Teeth” via VEVO today! The song and video features multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Skylar Grey (Dr. Dre, Eminem, Rihanna, Zedd, Nicki Minaj). Watch the video below!

The video “Periscope” was directed by award-winning firm The Uprising Creative (Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Big Sean, Lil Jon) who cited the inspiration for the video was “to create a moody, different look for the band using a stylistic light exploration – exploring color through light, projection and dynamic performances of the performers.”

“Periscope” is inspired by the realization that sometimes within a relationship you might not be worth being loved or that the other person may not be worth your love, and the struggle within that— how much effort it takes to make things work,” says Papa Roach lead vocalist Jacoby Shaddix.  “One part that I think is really meaningful in the video is when Skylar and I are in the shot at the same time, yet we’re not engaging with each other.  It represents the ‘disconnection’ with two people, which is very much what the lyrics describe.” Grey adds, “You are loving someone from a distance, not able to reach them.”
