Miracle brings Nonpoint back

First the news part, Nonpoint is back with a new album and single, both titled Miracle. The album drops on April 27 on 954 Records (Rocket Science Ventures/RED/Sony) and the single hits digital stores on March 30.

The album was produced by Mudvayne & HELLYEAH members Chad Gray and Greg Tribbett and Nonpoint will bring the show on the road next week with Cold.

What I found entertaining was the everybody's pickin on us attitude that gave the album it's name.

Elias Soriano of Nonpoint says, ‘ I wrote this song as a gigantic F**K You” to all those that doubted this band’s will and perseverance. It’s for all the naysayers that tried to lead us into defeat, and the fans that have stood behind us for over ten years. It set the tone for the whole record. We’re here to wage war on the airwaves, and to stop us is going to take a f**king miracle.”

That shit doesn't hold weight in sports and it doesn't work in music either. We all have hard times and when you stick to your guns you're better off. Vengeance tends to be short term payoff. It all comes down to what the music does. If the music is good, you'll be treated that way, and Nonpoint has a couple things going for them. I hope this attitude doesn't outweigh their mission.
