Nonpoint Drummer Outlines His Plans For Deeds Pride Side Project

Nonpoint drummer Robb Rivera has taken some time to address his plans for his upcoming Deeds Pride. Here’s what he had to say about the project:

“So there is no confusion i want to clear something up, this project is not being put together for touring. I have enough of that with Nonpoint. This is being put together for pure fun and being able to create with some friends.

I will not rule out maybe a show in the future and if i do that i already have the band i would do it with, i would like to release this every 6 months with different singers if possible. I will be playing all the instruments except vocals. Stay Tuned.”

In addition to that Rivera recently laid down some drums for the band Kezia. You can check out his contributions over at his Soundcloud.
