MACHINE HEAD guitarist Phil Demmel joined NONPOINT on stage on February 20 at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, California to perform the latter band's song "Bullet With A Name" as well as a snippet of MACHINE HEAD's "Davidian". Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.NONPOINT's latest album, "The Poison Red", was released last July via Spinefarm Records. The CD was recorded at Uptown Recording Studio in Chicago with producer Rob Ruccia. "The Poison Red" was the first NONPOINT album to feature lead guitarist BC Kochmit, whom singer Elias Soriano described as "Eddie Van Halen's illegitimate child." Soriano told New Noise Magazine about "The Poison Red" songwriting process: "Substance is now the only thing I really care the most about. Writing a rockin song is something that hopefully comes naturally to the guys. Having something that has a little more substance is the part that I won't compromise. Take the pre-chorus in 'No Running Allowed', for example. I'm tired of watching the news and seeing murderers or famous people that leave their wife of twenty years because they get famous, jump on 'Dancing With The Stars' and fall in love with a young woman. Then, the next week, they're on a morning show with a smile on their face, apologizing." He continued: "People aren't being held accountable for being shitty fucking people. As long as they apologize, it's cool. But, if a 21-year-old Latino or black guy runs down the street and no one knows why he's running, he'll be tackled and put in cuffs. You can't run in this society without being shot or arrested, but you can be a piece of shit with no consequence."
