Tuesday, March 25, 2014 1:33 PM PT


Official press release:

Metal Blade Records is excited to announce that Nonpoint will join its global roster of artists. Metal Blade will serve as the label home for the band worldwide, in addition to the band's label partner in North America. Since their debut album, "Statement," Nonpoint has done nothing but prove, record after record, they can still dominate stages and radio airwaves everywhere. Their most current "self-titled" release was their most critically-acclaimed and landed them their two highest charting singles. Now, with their recent signing to label powerhouse, Metal Blade Records, they are making the biggest statement of their careers. They now want world domination. Updates on the new album, including new music and more, will be posted within the following weeks on metalblade.com.

"This is a dream situation for us. Just getting an offer from Metal Blade. We've always needed a team behind us outside of the U.S. It's a great feeling knowing you now have the best team possible." says Elias Soriano, the band's vocalist.

Drummer Robb Rivera comments: "We are excited to not only get THE worldwide label of labels to release our album outside of the US, but to be part of a family now that has pretty much set the bar for metal releases for 30 plus years. Needless to say, extremely excited to be able to get our music to the fans outside of the US through the team that helped launch Metallica."

Brian Slagel of Metal Blade Records adds, "All of us at Metal Blade are happy to welcome Nonpoint to the Metal Blade family. We are excited to work with them and the bit of new material I heard sounds great!!"

Nonpoint's eighth full-length album is scheduled for release this Fall. Be prepared to watch them destroy and dominate stages now on a worldwide scale and convert droves of overseas fans now thanks to the support of Metal Blade Records.

RISE should have signed them. Would fit right in with all their other nu-metal.

Signed with metal blade because every other major label has dropped them. Smart PR move, real smart.
