Nonpoint Release Cover Of Prince’s “When Doves Cry”

Nonpoint have officially released their cover of Prince’s “When Doves Cry.” The band recorded the track after it was chosen through a fan-voted contest.

Elias Soriano commented:

“Our fans throughout the years have always had a quiet romance with the songs we like to cover. Seeing that our biggest showing in that category, our cover of Phil Collins ‘In The Air Tonight,’ was a suggestion from a friend and fan of the band, we thought it only fitting we let all our fans have a chance to throw their hats in the ring this time.

So in the middle of a global pandemic, we threw up a bracket style voting tournament with a list of contenders from Metallica to DMX. As fans voted over a few weeks, it was exciting to watch it go from 16 songs to the final two, Metallica’s – ‘Nothing Else Matters‘ vs Prince’s – ‘When Doves Cry‘. When they chose Prince, the real work began.

We went through version after version. We knew we had to do it justice in the biggest way we could as tribute to Prince and still make it Nonpoint. I’m happy to report from initial response among the few who have heard it is exciting and we look forward to our fans singing it for years to come.”

Nonpoint Launch Fundraiser Shirt After Recently Having To Postpone Shows Due To Trailer Accident & Positive COVID-19 Cases

As previously reported, Nonpoint recently had to postpone some shows due to a trailer accident and some positive COVID-19 cases within the band. Now, the group have launched a special shirt in an effort to raise money to help themselves get back on their feet following these unfortunate setbacks. Nonpoint commented:

“As you’ve probably heard we’ve taken it pretty hard on the chin to say the least. The FULL STORY of our accident with the trailer and all the obstacles that came along with them are explained here in this video. The realities of touring at a time like this were a risk we reluctantly took for obvious reasons, but took it none the less. We’ve found out very quickly hoping for the best can be little against the realities of the road. We call to our fans and friends alike to help where they can.

Nonpoint Postpone More Shows After Members Of The Band Test Positive For COVID-19

Nonpoint have postponed some more shows due to members of the band testing positive for COVID-19. This news comes after the group previously postponed several shows due to an accident involving their trailer and gear.

Nonpoint issued the following statement:

“Now due to multiple members of the band testing positive for Covid, we unfortunately have no choice but to begin rescheduling more shows on the I’m About To Explode Tour. We unfortunately have to postpone Battle Creek, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Charleston, Huntsville, Charlotte, and we will be unable to perform at Orlando’s Rebel Rock. As it stands, we are hoping to be back on the road by Sept 28th, but we have to allow time for us to get healthy again and as we also had an incident with our trailer and our gear, we have to assess what we logistically can manage. Touring in these times has proven to be hard for our camp, so I hope you understand that we’re taking time to regroup, get healthy, and re-plan. That being said, we appreciate the support of our fans and clubs as we try to figure out our next steps. We will update again in the coming days about the health status of the band, and about any more info on this tour as it develops.

The following shows have been rescheduled to the following dates in 2022:

January 7th: Indianapolis, IN @ Emerson Theater
January 8th: Battle Creek, MI @ The Music Factory
January 9th: Ft. Wayne, IN @ Piere’s
January 11th: Cleveland, OH @ Beachland Ballroom
January 12th: Syracuse, NY @ Lost Horizon
January 14th: Hampton Beach, NH @ Wallys

January 16th: Asbury Park, NJ @ House of Independents
January 18th: Charleston, WV @ Rock City Bake Company
January 19th: Charlotte, NC @ Amos
January 20th: Huntsville, AL @ Sidetracks Music Hall

Nonpoint have officially launched their own label, which they are calling 361 Degrees Records. The group commented:

“Nothing will ever be the same for our band. Today is the first big step in the beginning of our new path we only dared to whisper about. We never thought it would ever come to pass but then again last year was 2020 and we all know that story. But what happened in the process has opened our eyes and changed everything. We want to take you along for the entire journey. Watch every concern get discussed, every obstacle laid in front of us bested, every assurance given and immediately taken we fight to recover, every triumph and disaster we’ve been presented. The story begins with this video and is the first domino to fall in the new story of Nonpoint.”
