Their self-titled album Nonpoint hits stores Tuesday, but you may have picked up an advanced copy at their show Saturday in Springfield. During a Saturday morning interview with WQLZ’s Bodine, Nonpoint front man Elias Soriano says that the band hit the reset button: a new record, new label, new members, and releasing a self-titled album only made sense. “We felt like with the addition of a couple new members, and the new label, it felt like a fresh start … so we thought how much more exciting can you get than releasing a self-titled record.” During Saturday’s interview, Elias and new guitarist Rasheed Thomas performed acoustic two new tunes from the album. You can watch the interview and their performance of “Left For Your” and “I Said It” to the right, or you can follow this link.
Static-X cancel performances
Medical problems are the reason Static-X is canceling the rest of their appearance on the Noise Revolution Tour. The band released a statement this weekend following their last show in Flint Michigan Saturday saying that front man Wayne Static has to head back to L.A. for some medical procedures. Noise Revolution supporting acts Ill Nino and Emmure will continue the tour without Static-X. Some remaining dates that Static-X were pulled from included Sunday’s show in Portage, Illinois.
