Nonpoint Announce Their New Permanent Guitarist


Nonpoint have welcomed guitarist Jason Zeilstra as the official replacement for BC Kochmit, who left the band this past August. The group announced his addition in the below official statement shared via their social media earlier today, November 11th:

“As we wrap rehearsals, pack our gear, roll up our sleeping bags, get our marshmallows, gram crackers and @hersheys, pick a good stick from the yard because there’s never a good on at the venues, get toilet paper, baby wipes and whatever else necessary for our tour with @hellyeahband starting in two days, we have also been secretly preparing our newest member for a life of 361ers, Shiprockers, dread swinging, non latinos singing in Spanish, Florida crowds, Madison and Wisconsin crowds in general, and of course Texas crowds, California crowds, Colorado crowds, Flint, Hartford, Vegas, New York, New Jersey, Philly, Boston and the crowds in a bunch of cities I know I’m forgetting.

Basically the kindness and undying support from the entire Nonpoint Nation. Let me tell you we searched far and wide and we are happy to say we found someone kind, determined, devoted and MOST IMPORTANTLY fucking DEADLY deadly on the guitar to continue this wild ride with us. So drumroll please… Badadadadad…

The Nonpoint camp would like to officially welcome our newest member Jason Zeilstra to the Nonpoint camp. I’m proud to announce that this CHICAGO resident and his talents, work ethic (and coincidentally his hair) are NONPOINT battle tested and ready to go. Let’s welcome Jason to the family with some comment, gif and emoji love down below, and don’t forget we will be on tour with HellYeah starting on Nov 15th-Dec 21st so come see our newest member kill it with us. Welcome to the 361/Nonpoint Nation family Jason!”
