Nonpoint - Rosemount Hotel
Nonpoint is an American nu metal band formed in 1997 in Florida. The band is currently comprised of Elias Soriano, Robb Rivera, Rasheed Thomas, B.C. Kochmit and Adam Woloszyn. Together they have released eight studio albums.
Regulars within the For Lauderdale metal scene, Rob Rivera and Elias Soriano formed Nonpoint in 1997. Their intention was to ride the wave of nu metal experimentation coming out of their corner of Florida. Determined to put some material out into the world, the band self-released their first album “Separate Yourself” in 1998. The work picked up some buzz and ultimately won the band representation from MCA Records.
Nonpoint’s first album on the MCA Records label was 2010 release “Statement”. The band aggressively toured the album throughout the US and promoted their tracks through festivals such as Ozzfest. The constant promotion finally paid off as sales of their album peaked and the album placed in the US Billboard Hot 200 chart and single “What a Day” hit the number 24 spot in the US Mainstream Rock chart.
With the momentum and fan base the band’s constant touring and promotion had won, Nonpoint released “Development” in 2002 and the album charted over a hundred spots higher on the US charts than its predecessor. With this success under their belts and the fresh influences of a new label at their disposal, the band released the 2004 album “Recoil”, where single “The Truth” earned the band its highest chart placement yet reaching the number 22 spot on the US Mainstream Rock Charts.
The band continued to pick up fans through constant touring and album releases between 2005 and 2014, all of which paved the way for the release of their most successful work to date: “The Return”. This 2014 album climbed to the number 39 spot on the US charts after the band generated excitement around its release via social networking sites such as Facebook.
