ABOUT BUCKCHERRY
Buckcherry released a deluxe edition of their 2015 studio album “Rock ‘N’ Roll” via F-Bomb Records/Caroline. 2016 is a special year for the band – being the 10th anniversary of their acclaimed “15” album and the huge rock hit that was “Crazy Bitch”. On their seventh studio album Rock ‘n’ Roll (released in 2015), the Los Angeles quintet—Josh Todd [vocals], Keith Nelson [guitar], Stevie D. [guitar], Xavier Muriel [drums], and Kelly LeMieux [bass]—staunchly uphold the commandments of rock music with an arsenal of new anthems primed to explode on impact and teeming with riotous energy, sexy swagger, and primal chops intact. Buckcherry have added fuel to the rock scene’s fire for nearly two decades now. The Grammy Award-nominated outfit is responsible for smashes including “Lit Up” off their gold-certified 1999 self-titled debut as well as “Crazy Bitch” and “Sorry” from 2006’s platinum 15. Along the way, they’ve shared stages with everybody from AC/DC and Mötley Crüe to Slipknot and Rob Zombie, among others. Visit http://buckcherry.com & https://www.facebook.com/buckcherry

ABOUT NONPOINT
Nonpoint only becomes fiercer with each subsequent album. Their ninth full-length offering and first for Spinefarm Records, The Poison Red, is no exception either. After 19 years in the game, the Florida quintet sustains the same energy that sparked its foundation back in 1997. The riffs crack with neck-snapping intensity, the bass and drums forge an unmatched groove, and the vocals rapidly recount stories of pain and perseverance. The Poison Red remains as raw, ripping, and real as these musicians—Elias Soriano [vocals], Robb Rivera [drums], Rasheed Thomas [rhythm guitar], Adam Woloszyn [bass], and B.C. Kochmit [lead guitar]—get. Visit http://nonpoint.com & https://www.facebook.com/nonpointworld/
