“The album, Discreet Enemy is pure masterpiece. It's heavy, it's emotional and it's honest. The album is everything that I would want to listen to, truly showcasing the talents of each band member as well as the band as a whole in every track.” - Jojo Shrader, MetalheadBlog.Com


“With the release of “Discreet Enemy”, POYNTE has flexed their muscles and unleashed a potent mixture of thick bass lines, strong lyrics, driving rhythms and outstanding vocals. From start to finish ”Discreet Enemy” is an absolute treat to the ears and should slingshot POYNTE on the fast track to stardom.” - Craig Cooper, Beyond the Pit Chicago


“Today we feature Atlanta band, Poynte is our Band of the Day. In a time where many bands are losing their way scrambling to be the next big thing, the honesty in the music seems to get lost or forgotten. With Poynte, there is no chance of that ever happening as their music highlights their passion with well written songs wrapped in emotionally driven lyrics and delivered with a fierce dose of hard rock.” - Marisol, MusicJunkiePress.Com


“Every single song I’ve heard from this band is incredible! Talk about a band with a bright future?! I fully expect to hear these guys on the radio and see them on big national tours in no time! The sky is the limit for this band!” - Tom George, Publicist


“Talk about a band I can’t wait to hear more from! The three tracks I was able to check out from POYNTE are absolutely stellar! They encompass just the right balance of melody and raw aggression that is sure to captivate audiences and leave them anxiously awaiting more! Get these guys on the road asap!” - Kristyn Clarke, PopCultureMadness


“Poynte!… One of the most hard-rockin’, ass-kickin’, riff-wielding, yet still melodic and hook-laden Georgia rock bands I have had in my studio! And you get the same thing from them live too. Rock fans, trust me, you WANT to check this band out. Go see them play, and get your hands on their music!” - Mike Froedge, (Black Label Society/ Bloodsimple/Double Drive)


“Ok, so I am the first to admit I get really excited about bands that get to me….and with POYNTE, I am hooked!!! Holy Crow!!! Everything is so awesome! Wow!! Erase Me is KILLER!! !I can’t wait to hear more!! I am a fan!!!!!” - Carrie Martin, Headbangers Cafe


“Given the circumstances in which Nursery Crimes was written, that is a very powerful song both lyrically and musically. I think that song could really be a big deal for them.” - Shauna O'Donnell, Pavement Entertainment Publicist


If you haven’t heard POYNTE yet, you’re going to want to remedy that. The band has drawn comparisons to the likes of Breaking Benjamin, RED, Wovenwar and Thousand Foot Krutch. While it may sound like they’re just another radio band, many are saying there is more there: a lyrical substance and a connectivity that most bands these days seem to lack. Their first single, Hold On, has opened many doors for the band and continues to inspire. - Mick McDonald (Owner of National Rock Review)

Bio

Music, like any art form, is subjective. It's rare that a sound has universal appeal across multiple genres. In fact, that's the hardest part of music. In today's musical climate, rock and roll is a niche market and most bands can only claim fans in one specific genre. Enter Atlanta, GA’s POYNTE into the fray and you'll be hard pressed to find someone who actually doesn't like the band. Sure there are heavy guitars and syncopated beats, but there's also a lyrical connectivity and a melodic sense that attracts people to their music.

2015 was a year that saw tremendous growth for POYNTE. The band experienced many firsts. They released their first full-length album in ‘Discreet Enemy’. They released their first music video for “Hold On”. They played their first National tour with platinum-selling artist Trapt and Sons of Texas.

2016 is shaping up to be another stellar year as the band has signed on with High Road Publicity to handle their press and radio campaigns. The band is shooting a music video with Director Andrew Burn for their track, “Take Control” and will be on tour with 2015 Ernie Ball Rock On The Range Battle Of The Bands winners, Screaming For Silence and their bearded brothers in Guns Out At Sundown.

About POYNTE:
Vocalist Kenny Hathorne’s voice and vocal melodies have been the key to furthering the band’s songwriting. Surviving a scissor lift accident, where he ended up with a titanium jaw replacement, Kenny leaves no doubt that he is destined for something great!

Guitarist Matt Bryant is one of the founding members of the band. Matt is a seasoned musician that has become a recognizable figure in the Atlanta music scene. He has been a driving force behind the group since the beginning.

The final elements were the additions of drummer Josh Fulcher, bassist Bryan Poss and lead guitarist Jake O’Donnell. Together, they've created the core that the band has long sought after.

While previous POYNTE lineups have had some success, the group senses their best days are yet to come. Some of their accomplishments include winning the 2012 Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands, which earned them a slot on the RockStar Uproar Festival in Atlanta, as well as winning the 2012 Cabo Wabo Your Shot to RockPOYNTE has also shared the stage all across the Southeast with national acts such as 10 YearsNonpointShinedownGodsmackPapa RoachSalivaDrowning PoolFuelAll That RemainsTraptSons Of Texas and Taproot.

About Discreet Enemy:
Written and refined over the course of a year, the band recorded ‘Discreet Enemy’ over a 60-day marathon in the band’s own studio, Covington, GA’s The Audiovault, with additional recording by Mike Froedge (Black Label Society/Double Drive/Bloodsimple) at Open Sky Studio. ‘Discreet Enemy’ was mixed by acclaimed producer/mixer Andy Reilly at Muse Productions (The Cult/Iron Maiden/Bon Jovi/The Police) and mastered by Matt Dalton (Chiodos/Hed Pe/Attila/Tantric/Royal Blood) at 37 Studios.
