Staind is comprised of Aaron Lewis (vocals, guitar), Mike Mushok (guitar), Jon Wysocki (drums, percussion) and Johnny April (bass, vocals).

Papa Roach has sold more than 10 million albums. With their feet firmly planted in more than 10 years of multi-format success with hits such as “Burn,” “Scars” and “Last Resort,” Papa Roach’s “Time For Annihilation…On the Record and On the Road” debuted as the No. 1 Independent Rock, No. 23 Top 200, No. 4 Hard Rock and No. 5 Alternative Album on Billboard’s charts. With the release of this record, the band has continued its long-term commitment to WhyHunger, raising funds and awareness for hunger and homelessness worldwide.

Papa Roach consists of Jacoby Shaddix (vocals), Jerry Horton (guitar, vocals) Tobin Esperance (bass, guitar, vocals) and Tony Palermo (drums, percussion, vocals).
