Nonpoint Announce Tour With Egypt Central, Let Fans Pick Set
The guys in Nonpoint are road warriors, but not road-weary. The band is embarking on a headline tour to support their new album, ‘Miracle,’ with Egypt Central in tow. Like any seasoned metal act, the band members take into account what songs their fans want to hear … but they’re going one step further. Nonpoint are actually letting fans pick the set list via Eventful polling.
“[The polling is] pretty much just a thing to give the fans an opportunity to feel engaged with the band,” Nonpoint singer Elias Soriano tells Noisecreep. “But it’s also a way we know what they really want to hear this time around on top of the new stuff that we want to play. We still want to please the fans.”
Soriano admits planning new sets is complicated — let alone leaving the decision up to the fans. “You got to take into consideration how aggressive the show’s going to be and how long the show’s going to be,” Soriano continues. “Those hour and a half shows you kind of go balls to the wall the entire time. You got to pace yourself and save your voice for the next time.
“So you build the set in two ways: one that you know is going to make everybody happy and everybody rock out. But at the same time, you want to give them a different show, and also allow me to be able to put on a good show the very next night.”
The new single ‘Frontlines’ will coincide with the Nonpoint tour dates. The song pays tribute to our men and women in the armed forces. Nonpoint will donate a portion of the proceeds of ‘Frontlines’ to various military charities. ‘Frontlines’ was officially be released to radio Aug. 10.
