Nonpoint is set to release eighth studio album, "The Return," on September 26th / 29th via Metal Blade Records (excluding North America). The new song "Breaking Skin" is streaming below, and you can find pre-order info at this location.

In February 2014, Nonpoint entered Groovemaster Studios with Grammy Award-nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, Staind, Megadeth) and engineer Daniel Salcidoto. It marked their second collaboration together.

Vocalist Elias Soriano elaborates: "I wanted to play with vocal patterns and tell longer stories in some places, while saying very little in others. The record has its own DNA because each song respectively does as well."

Drummer Robb Rivera goes on to say, "Johnny is like the sixth member of our band at this point! He works us, and he pulls no punches. It was such a natural thing that we only needed to track for three weeks. Johnny understands the band and what we are, and he encourages us to be ourselves."

Elias explains the meaning behind the first single: "It's about addiction, whether it be food, drugs, sex, lying, or anything, that tends to turn into an itch. You can't stop scratching it so you break skin. Then, you're bleeding. You need to get help at that point and deal with it."

"I want everybody to feel like they got a complete record from beginning to end," concludes Elias. "I want them to walk away with something substantial and true that they can hopefully come back to."

Robb leaves off, "Nonpoint has always been known for writing songs that help people. If we can help even one person feel better about his or her day, we've done well, as far as I'm concerned. I hope everybody gets something positive and can walk away with a smile."

I'm actually really looking forward to this album. With a mostly new line up, their last album was easily one of the best start to finish.
