On this episode I welcome back Nonpoint to talk about their new album “The Return” set for release Sept. 30th. Hear Elias the lead vocalist of the band talk about recording the new album, Nonpoint’s early beginnings, touring and Lebron James leaving Miami.
I also welcome Johnny Hawkins the lead singer from the Texas based band “Nothing More” to talk about their new self titled album and upcoming tour with Five Finger Death Punch, Hell Yeah and Volbeat. Johnny and I also discuss the band’s new album, MTV, and water sports.
Not only will you hear great interviews but also cuts off Nonpoint and Nothing More perspective albums.
Coming up with a title this week was really easy. There were no other options really for a name unlike other shows. However how could I not try to come up with a few fun titles?
“Slow cooking Metal”
“Wake boards and Birthday songs”
“The “M” stands for”
I open the show talking about this guy Oliver “The Champ” Struempfel. The man set a new record for holding and carrying beers! He holds and carries 27 liters of cold delicious beer!
Oliver is the ultimate party favor! Carrying beers for you and 25 of your closest friend!
With football season in full bloom and the change of the season around the corner, we will start seeing the micro brews from all over the world. October fest beers crafted from grass clippings near Foxboro stadium in New England, with a nice blend of drift wood to give it the dry, crisp flavor you crave during the change of season. Christmas ales brewed from the sweat of elves banished from Santa Claus work shop. Seasonal brews from the west coast that feature a sprig of mint coupled with the remains of dead monks discovered on a sunken pirate ship. I believe it’s called salty mint monks ale. Don’t forget the most robust, bitter stout of them all, The Winters Coming. The beer is brewed from ashes of rough drafts of the final written TV series Game of Thrones. It’s cold, dry and does not give a fuck who it kills!
Well, that was a fun rant! Here a video of Oliver doing his thing! Beer handles!
Johnny Hawkins the lead vocalist from Nothing More joined me for a really fun interview. He covered the bands new self titled album and the large undertaking to creating it and completing it. Johnny and I also have a few funny moments ripping on MTV. They really make it easy don’t they? Not only do we discuss the new album but we also play a few cuts off the album including the new single “This Is The Time” We also discuss their upcoming tour with Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, and Hell yeah.
This interview has it all including talk about former guest Downfall2012 and partaking on some water spots!
Elias from Nonpoint first appeared on Revelator # 23 “Nonpoint To a Polarity” Elias and I discuss their self titled album and the upcoming writing sessions for what we now know is “The Return” set for release Sept. 30th 2014
Elias and the guys from Nonpoint have been great supporters of the Revelator show since appearing on the show last summer 2013. We were able to talk about the early days of Nonpoint dating back to 1997. Elias talks about his first meetings with Robb and how they got together.
It was great hearing Elias talk about working with Johnny K again for this album and where the band is musically. You can hear from the first single “Breaking Skin” that this band is exactly where they want to be both professionally and musically.
Elias, explains, “Last record we stepped in a direction we've wanted to for years and our fans revered us for it. This record we have gotten up to speed and dropped the pedal to the floor. I think our fans will embrace this record in a way no other Nonpoint record has been viewed or loved. We left no room for question of what we are trying to accomplish with our music or who we are. We haven't gone back to old school. We didn't reflect on our past. We didn't discuss what works. We are not "Statement" Nonpoint or even "Bullet" Nonpoint...... "The Return" is Nonpoint right the fuck now."
