Nonpoint to release The Poison Red in July


Nonpoint will release The Poison Red on July 8.

The Florida metal outfit have been writing the follow-up to 2014’s The Return since last year. They parted ways with guitarist David Dave Lizzio in 2014 and replaced him with BC Kochmit, which singer Elias Soriano admitted has boosted their songwriting formula for album No.9.

He said: “This record is the product of pain, frustration, power and the environmental influence on this band. That mounted with the introduction of BC on guitars.

“Imagine feeling like Eddie Van Halen’s illegitimate child just joined your band. That’s how I feel with him on my right. So this record will no doubt be a beast for our fans.”

Nonpoint are set to tour the US in July in support of The Poison Red. It can be pre-ordered via Spinefarm Records.
