(New York, N.Y.): NONPOINT will release their new album The Poison Red on July 8. Their Spinefarm Records debut is full of NONPOINT’s patented, tried-and-true anthems, which fans often look to as a source of inspiration for conquering adversity in their own lives. It’s that sort of deep connection with fans that has kept Nonpoint vital for 20 years.
To herald the release of The Poison Red, NONPOINT have shared the new song “Generation Idiot.” Listen to the track below and check out the exclusive studio footage, which premiered via Loudwire.
The track rails against Internet tough guys and text-message fairweather friends, emphasizing the power of deeper means of communication and connection, which includes music. It’s also one of the heaviest songs in the NONPOINT repertoire.
“This record tells a lot of stories,” said vocalist Elias Soriano. “Going from guts to glory. Chasing impossible dreams down the rabbit hole. Harsh and honest words with consequences attached. Uncovered rules for the weak, made by the wicked and heartless. Recalling fight or flight moments with a deep breath. And it all starts with a warning to all the world’s generations past, present and future to look up, look forward and live their lives loose from social media shackles, online bullying, the devaluation of art and music, and to not be absorbed by the dramatic, megalomaniacal side of politics. Life is right outside of your phone and newsfeed. Go live it and play this record while you do. It’ll all start to make sense.”
