On Jan. 23, Papa Roach invaded New York City's Terminal 5 along with Stone Sour. The band is currently out in support of The Connection, their latest album. Hitting stores in Oct. 2012, the Papa Roach album sold 22,000 copies in its first week of release and debuted at the No. 17 position on the Billboard album chart.

The Terminal 5 performance found Papa Roach in fighting form, delivering selections spanning their seven album discography with the energy usually reserved for newer acts. It's all the more impressive knowing that singer Jacoby Shaddix went under a serious throat operation last year.

In this Noisecreep exclusive, we bring you backstage at Terminal 5, into Papa Roach's dressing room while the group prepared for their performance. We've also included some live shots from the night. If you have a chance to see this tour, we strongly suggest you get off that couch!
