California's brutal heavy hardcore champs NAILS are set to embark on their massive two-month long North American tour this week. Here are the complete dates. Several new shows have been added to the previously announced routing, including a FREE Scion-sponsored Metal Matinee with Magrudergrind and Trash Talk at The Roxy in West Hollywood on September 11th. RSVP for the event at www.scionav.com/metalshow and also check out a trailer for the event at: http://vimeo.com/14561961 .
One of Southern Lord's most recent label acquisitions, NAILS' music is beyond brutality; filthy, vicious and raw. Imagine a cross between the good Amrep bands of the nineties (Helmet, Hammerhead, Today is The Day, Unsane) and Cro-Mags Age of Quarrel riffage played at breakneck speeds. Their epic battle cry Unsilent Death was recorded during the cold winter of 2009 at Kurt Ballou's (Converge, Trap Them, Black Breath) Godcity Recording Studios.
The CD version of 'Unsilent Death' was originally released in limited quantities by Six Feet Under records. The LP version was self-released on the band on the band's own Streetcleaner label and quickly sold through the 1000 piece pressing. Southern Lord is extremely honored to pick up the torch of this album and let it burn brightly through many more countless battles!
