COLD and Nonpoint to Co-Headline Dates with Day of Fire


Cold Jacksonville, FL-based rock band Cold have announced a co-headlining run with fellow Florida rockers, Nonpoint. The trek will begin on February 16, 2010 at the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, NC and will also feature the support act Day of Fire, whose single "Lately" is at #40 on the Active Rock chart and rising.

Cold released their self-titled debut album in the summer of 1998. After steadily building a solid touring base, the band returned in 2000 with their sophomore effort 13 Ways to Bleed on Stage, which peaked at #1 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart and brought the band their first appearance within the Top 100 on The Billboard 200 chart. In 2003, Cold scored their biggest hit to date with "Stupid Girl" (co-written by Weezer's Rivers Cuomo) off of Year of the Spider. The smash single went to #4 at Mainstream Rock and #6 at Modern Rock. Year of the Spider went all the way to #3 on The Billboard 200 chart, followed by A Different Kind of Pain in 2005, which went to #26 on the same chart. Cold is Scooter Ward (Vocals/Keys/Guitar), Zach Gilbert (Guitar), Jeremy Marshall (Bass/Vocals) and Sam McCandless (Drums). The band is currently working on a new album due out mid 2010.

Also formed in 1998, the hard rock quartet from Ft. Lauderdale, Nonpoint burst on the scene with their major label debut, Statement, on MCA Records. Since then, they have sold nearly 700 thousand albums and played over 1000 shows. Known for their dynamic performances, Nonpoint has shared the stage with acts such as Mudvayne, Sevendust, Disturbed, HELLYEAH, Drowning Pool and Papa Roach, as well as touring with Ozzfest. In continuation of a successful more than 10-year career, Nonpoint is back with a new guitarist, management and record label. The band recently departed Belle City Sound in Racine, WI where they finished recording their full-length album with YEP! Productions' Chad Gray and Greg Tribbett (also members of Mudvayne and HELLYEAH). The album is slated for a spring 2010 release.
