Get Nonpoints New Album 'The Poison Red' (Click Image)

June 30, 2016
Madison Live
Covington, KY

Originally scheduled for the Thompson House in Northern KY, the NonPoint show, supporting their newest album available on 7-8-16 entitled "The Poison Red", was moved to the Madison Live venue a few miles away.

Opening up for night were some great bands starting with Irongate from Portsmouth, Ohio, a heavy band with a lead singer resembling the great Zakk Wylde. With their heavy sound mixed with some blues and southern guitar rock they gave the night the start that was needed. Local Cincinnati band, Armchair Psychosis, filled the second slot with a solid set giving the fans a rock set with a punk feel tied in. The third band of the night Circles in Time hailing from Nashville, Tennessee are a two man band they can get the job done. If I wasn’t there to see for myself, I would never have believed that this band’s sound of thundering drums and polished guitar work was from only 2 musicians. The sounds and set were very good and they proved that they are a power duo. Failure Anthem from Greensboro, NC, rounded out the night of openers with a very solid and great sounding set. Chris Pierson recently took over as the new lead singer replacing JD Eubanks and the FA fans gave him a resounding welcome and sang along throughout with the band.

As headliner Nonpoint took the stage, the Madison Live venues entire crowd erupted with cheers and pumping fists.

As lead singer Elias Soriano grabbed the microphone the band broke into music new and old from their catalog.

“Generation Idiot”, the first single from the newest album, was a big hit with all the fans as they sang along filling the whole venue with Nonpoint.

Rasheed Thomas with his dreads working in time while shredding his guitar can only be matched on stage by fellow dreaded BC Kochmit wailing back in response through the entire set.

Adam Woloszyn on bass and Robb Rivera on drums bring the thundering sounds to complete this awesome bands unique heavy sound.

Nonpoint will continue to headline through August around the US, so if you get a chance to catch Nonpoint live don’t hesitate to get tickets as they are a top notch live band!
