Check out a very interesting behind-the-scenes for the latest Papa Roach video “I Almost Told You That I Love You”. The band tells how they decided on the storyline for the video and shows all the characters involved. There is a dominatrix, life-size furry creatures enjoying simulated carnal pleasures and a guy behind hung by hooks through the skin on his back. Wow! All in all, a pretty entertaining affair. The song is from the latest Papa Roach CD Metaphorphosis which was released this past March.
