Florida-based hard rock band NONPOINT has finished recording its seventh album at Groovemaster Studios in Chicago, Illinois with Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K (DISTURBED, STAIND, MEGADETH). The CD is currently being mixed for a late 2012 release via the band’s new label home, Razor Tie.
The first couple of photos of the new NONPOINT lineup can be seen below.
Founding NONPOINT members Elias Soriano (vocals) and Robb Rivera (drums) last year welcomed three new members to the family: Dave Lizzio (guitar), Adam Wolosyzn (bass), and Rasheed Thomas (guitar). All three musicians come from the Chicago-based rock act INN CINEMA.
Commented Soriano: “We’re proud to officially announce the new members of NONPOINT. Dave Lizzio, Rasheed Thomas and Adam Woloszyn have been chased by bands in the Chicago area for years and somehow by a stroke of luck and timing, we now have three of the freshest, most talented players on our team. These guys are great players and even better people.
“From day one, the new writing process has been full of great ideas and open minds, and now adding Johnny K into the formula has Robb and I very excited. After listening to the demos, Johnny K said, ‘It’s easy to find someone to play guitar for a band. It’s hard to accomplish what you have by finding Dave, Rasheed and Adam, and that’s finding people who can write amazing riffs.’ From that point on I knew: This new lineup and record will be epic in the chronicle of NONPOINT.”
NONPOINT last year parted ways with guitarist Zach Broderick and founding bassist Ken MacMillan.
The band’s latest album, “Miracle”, sold around 8,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 60 on The Billboard 200 chart.
“Miracle” was released in Europe on June 14, 2010 via Powerage Records. The CD was made available in the U.S. on May 4, 2010 via the band’s own 954 Records in partnership with Rocket Science Ventures / RED / Sony.
