Nonpoint Announces US Tour

American rockers, Nonpoint are back at it again!  Embarking on Part 2 of their ongoing US tour, Robb Rivera and Nonpoint will team up with Cody Hanson and Hinder for a 10-stop east coast tour taking place over the course of the next 2 weeks.  For Nonpoint, this tour comes as a continuation to their previous US run, which brought the band around the entire country on a headlining tour, exciting the rock world with their signature heavy rock sound that has caused a complete takeover of the radio airwaves.  Currently, Nonpoint is out in support of their new self-titled album which was released last October courtesy of Razor & Tie.  The new album hosts the singles “I Said It” and “Left For You”.  

The mastermind behind the mayhem-filled beats of Nonpoint’s explosive sound is none other than Pearl’s own Robb Rivera.  A new face to the Pearl Artist Roster in 2012, Robb recently signed with Pearl during the recording process of their latest self-titled release, and has beautifully displayed his flawless rock drumming during the early stages of his tenure.  Robb’s drumming style defines what a rock drummer is, with his arm-flailing, snare-smashing, energetic and high-octane playing keeping the mosh-pits circling and fans screaming through Nonpoint’s highly entertaining live show.  Currently, Robb spends his time on stage bashing away on a gorgeous set of Reference Series drums, which provide the warm, full, and deep tones through the toms, a well-rounded punch from the bass drum, all topped off with a deafening crack from the 20-ply Reference Series snare drum.  Robb’s full specs are as follow:
Reference Series:
Wine Red (100)

20x18 bass drum
16x16 floor tom
14x6.5 Reference Series snare drum
