Nonpoint fans rejoice! With 2015 winding down, everyone has their eyes set on next year, including these veteran rockers. They will be joining Disturbed on their previously announced North American tour and will be hitting the studio soon to record a new album, tentatively to be released some time in 2016.

Singer Elias Soriano is pumped about the album and the tour. He has stated the band will be entering Uptown Recording Studio in Chicago to self-produce the album along with Rob Ruccia. The frontman detailed the band's progress thus far, saying, "We've got 16 [songs] ready to record, and three still in the works. So we will be choosing the record from a list of what we feel are all monster songs. Quite simply, if you thought the last record made your head bang, this record will make it roll off your shoulders and jump into the pit and start doing the Morning Star; old hardcore fans will translate that for you."

Soriano also sung the praises of their newest guitarist BC Kochmit and said, "This record is the product of pain, frustration, power and the environmental influence on this band. That, mounted with the introduction of BC [in 2014] on guitars, now has changed the game. 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."

Their tour opening for Disturbed will kick off March 11 in British Columbia and come to a close April 10 in Memphis, Tenn. The tour is already sold out, so Nonpoint will be playing to a packed house each night as their punchy rock anthems get the crowd ready for Disturbed.
