Nonpoint Performs Following February 6 Game. Nonpoint was formed in 1998 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and has sold well over 500,000 records in the United States. Their unrelenting live shows have earned them the distinction as one of rock music’s best performing acts. The band has toured with some of the genre’s most renowned acts including Mudvayne, Staind, Ozzie Osbourne and Linkin Park. The group’s new album, To The Pain, is a culmination of the band’s hard work over their last decade in the music industry. The album’s first single, “Bullet With A Name,” has been steadily climbing the charts and is already one of the band’s most successful singles.
Seventh Void Performs Following March 6 Game. Seventh Void is a hard rock band composed of Type O Negative members Kenny Hickey, Johnny Kelly, Matt Brown of Uranium 235, and Hank Hell of Inhuman. Originally conceived in 2003 by Hickey and Kelly, the band's personnel was not solidified until 2005 when their songwriting began in earnest. The band's name is lifted from a line in Dante’s Inferno. Their debut album, Heaven Is Gone, was released in April 2009 on Big Vin Records and has received high acclaim.
Saving Abel Performs Following March 20 Game. Saving Abel gradually came together in the small town of Corinth, Mississippi with the final electric lineup of guitarist Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor and drummer Blake Dixon. The band released their self-titled, major label debut album on March 11, 2008, which achieved certified gold status just one year later largely in part due to the strength of its hit single “Addicted,” which peaked at #2 on the US Mainstream Rock Chart. The band is almost finished with their second full-length record and plans to return to the studio this month to record the last few tracks.
