Southern California-based four man hatecrew NAILS has inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The band’s as-yet-untitled third album is tentatively scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2015.
“After waging an oppressive blitzkrieg against the world in 2013 with ‘Abandon All Life’, NAILS will join the ranks of the legendary Nuclear Blast for our next campaign of grindcore/death/punk tyranny,” comments NAILS vocalist/guitarist Todd Jones. “Alongside the hate dogs is none other than Monte Conner, building on his work with gods like OBITUARY, DEATH and SEPULTURA in bringing the extreme underground to the forefront of heavy music.
“Deep in a Southern California bunker crafting our newest LP, the tyrants offer sincere thanks to our former team at Southern Lord for their commitment to NAILS’ vision. Long live bleak aggression, crushing rage, and audial warfare. Long live NAILS. HATRED AD INFINITUM…”
Formed in December 2007, NAILS is comprised of Todd Jones, Taylor Young, John Gianelli and A.R. Saba. Their music can only be described as being beyond conventional aural brutality. Their unique blend of grindcore, death metal, and punk invokes the most unabashed violent emotions from the recesses of its listeners’ reptilian brains. Their raw sincerity, take-no-prisoners live show and D.I.Y. work ethic has earned the band a vast loyal following, and made them the most talked about band in the underground. The legendary Max Cavalera recently accurately declared their current album “Abandon All Life” as “one of the best albums of the last 20 years,” and NAILS to be “probably the heaviest band right now.”
