For Immediate Release:

Nonpoint Introduces Minneapolis' Sunset Black on Ernie Ball-Sponsored “Development” Tour

Florida's Nonpoint has achieved considerable success since the 2000 release of their debut effort for MCA Records, Statement. Having toured with such contemporary heavyweights as Linkin Park and Staind, as well as last year's Ozzfest, the album sold in excess of 250,000 units -- largely due to the band's unique melody and infectious hooks. This past summer, Nonpoint has upped the ante with their adventurous sophomore effort Development, recently released the DVD Accompaniment and just wrapped touring on the inaugural Locobazooka and Sprite Liquid Mix tours.

Now, Nonpoint is sharing the excitement with a favorite up-and-comer, Minneapolis-based Sunset Black, who recently released their debut effort Common Ground through the Bieler Bros. imprint label for MCA. An intensely focused outfit, Sunset Black has been described as depicting emotionally gut-wrenching stories encircled by raw aggression... like Dashboard meets the Deftones. The album was produced by Nonpoint guitarist Andy Goldman.

The two bands have teamed up for the Ernie Ball sponsored “Development” Tour. Nonpoint guitarist Andy Goldman and bassist KB are both endorsed by Ernie Ball music equipment, and Sunset Black are potential endorsees testing their mettle. Ernie Ball Artist Relations representative Derek Brooks comments on the anticipation of sponsoring this tour: "We're very excited to be working with a band the caliber of Nonpoint. They actually competed in an Ernie Ball promotional event before they were signed, and we're grateful that the competition helped launch their career. We're getting behind Nonpoint because they truly believe in Ernie Ball instruments and strings, and we're happy they enjoy our products."

Ernie Ball will be coordinating a guitar-giveaway promotion along the tour trail. In each major market, Andy Goldman will be giving one lucky winner one of his own Ernie Ball Music Man Axis or Axis Super Sport guitars! Additionally, Nonpoint is instating a new and unique promotion to bring their fans closer. For this entire tour, the band will have a cell phone dedicated to the sole use of communicating directly with the fans. Anyone can call Nonpoint while they are driving in the bus, sound-checking on stage or signing at their merch booth. One just has to call 954-494-4754 and a member of Nonpoint will answer (as long as they aren't sleeping or otherwise indisposed) -- no additional fees apply. Another highlight of this tour will be Nonpoint's A&R drop box on the merch table. Looking to discover new bands, as they did with Sunset Black, Nonpoint will have a drop box set up at their merch table where musicians can drop off their demo tapes. The tapes will then be reviewed and bands will be contacted.
