During the first week of September, NONPOINT was on tour for the first time in two years. While traveling from one show to another, the band’s trailer unhitched and crashed into a wooded area, damaging equipment and merchandise. While all of this was going on, two of the band-members also contracted COVID-19 and had to leave the tour altogether.
“If someone hadn’t been filming when it all happened, people probably wouldn’t believe it,” singer Elias Soriano says about the band’s most taxing and obstacle-filled week in years. “You thought it couldn’t get worse than 2020 and dealing with COVID? How about watching your trailer full of gear roll off into a Tennessee forest at 75 miles per hour?”

Last week, NONPOINT rescheduled just under a dozen shows on its current tour after “multiple members of the band” tested positive for COVID-19.
Back in June, NONPOINT released the official video for “Ruthless”, the title track of their upcoming EP. “Ruthless” was released to digital outlets in May through the band’s very own label 361 Degrees Records LLC and was this year’s featured track on AEW’s Blood And Guts on TNT. “Ruthless” can be streamed/downloaded at Nonpoint.com.
