Nails announce tour dates with Full of Hell & more, hate Record Store Day
SoCal hardcore/death metal monsters Nails (who the singer of Scream loves) recently announced their new album You Will Never Be One Of Us, and now they've announced a North American tour to go along with it (so much for not touring anymore). They'll be hitting the road for east coast dates with Full of Hell, God's Hate and Eternal Sleep, along with west coast dates that will join them up with Terrorizer, Freedom and Nomads.
That east coast run will take them through NYC for a show at the Marlin Room at Webster Hall on June 22. Tickets for that are not yet on sale but should be available soon via ticketweb.
Meanwhile, Nails frontman Todd Jones recently took the opportunity to rail against Record Store Day, which he blames for the delay in the release of the new album and for generally not working to the benefit of "regular bands." As he told TeamRock:
It's completely fucked over things for regular bands – go ahead and have your multi-coloured vinyl reissues you fucking poseur. The fact is that when [Nails' 2013 album] Abandon All Life came out before the pressing plants were backed up, we handed our record in to Southern Lord on January 15 and our record was out by March 20. For [upcoming album] You Will Never Be One Of Us we handed everything in to the record label on January 20 and our record's not coming out until June 17. Why? Because of fucking Record Store Day, that's why.
So, no limited edition colored vinyl for the new Nails album then.
All dates listed, along with Nails' new video for "You Will Never Be One of Us," below.
