Taylor Young has announced his departure from Nails. The drummer says he played his final show with the band in December and officially left in the spring.
Young said the following:
“Here we have my first and final recorded contribution to NAILS. The 10th anniversary version of Unsilent Death is out now on Southern Lord Records featuring two previously unreleased songs, as well as the Obscene Humanity 7” remixed and remastered with those two songs.
The band and I parted ways this past spring, and I played my final show with the band last December. I’ll always be a TYRANT; the band will always be a massive part of me, and I hope it keeps going. If anybody has an inkling of a feeling that NAILS can’t make good music without me, that’s simply not true as Todd’s attention to detail, and quality control is unmatched. It was a wild decade with Todd, John, Saba, Leon and others and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. However, I cannot update you on the status of the band so no more questions about it please.”
