DEKALB, Ill.—Jacksonville, Fla., natives Cold and fellow Floridians Nonpoint will make their DeKalb debut Tuesday, March 2, at Otto’s Nightclub. Nashville, Tenn., natives Day of Fire will also perform. Tickets are $20 and are available in advance at

Cold first hit the rock scene in 2000 with their major-label debut 13 Ways to Bleed on Stage, which was certified gold by the RIAA. They have since sold more than 1 million records throughout their three releases on Geffen Records.

After a brief hiatus and a couple side projects, Cold decided to reunite in the fall of 2009 and are now hitting the road with Nonpoint this spring.

Cold and Nonpoint were both pioneers in the nu-metal scene started by acts like Korn, Deftones and Limp Bizkit. Nonpoint has been touring extensively since their major-label debut in 2000, Statement. Nonpoint’s front man Soriano combines soulful singing and rapping vocals over an aggressive rock and metal style of music.

Joining Cold and Nonpoint on this tour are Nashville, Tenn., natives Day of Fire. Day of Fire comes to the stage with mainstream rock licks that fans of Stone Temple Pilots or Alice in Chains cannot ignore.

Combined, Cold and Nonpoint have sold almost 2 million records, they have toured the globe countless times, playing anywhere from a stadium or massive festivals, to an up-close-and-personal venue.
