The band commented:

“Nails would like to welcome the addition of second guitarist, Leon Del Muerte. You may recognize Leon from recent Nails shows since we started touring on ‘You Will Never Be One Of Us‘ or from playing with such bands as Terrorizer L.A., Nausea, Intronaut, Phobia, Murder Construct etc. He’s the fucking man and any time you’re at a Nails gig, you’ll be watching him grind your face off with us.

On that note, we would like to acknowledge the departure of Andy Saba. He left the band (on his terms) December 2015. Saba‘s creative contribution to Nails and skill as a guitarist will never be understated. He co-wrote the ‘Abandon All Life‘ LP as well as the ‘2-song Flexi’ and was a great addition to the band during his tenure. Saba left his mark on Nails, on our fans, and his input to the band is immeasurable. Nails would like to extend much peace, love, respect, and appreciation to Andy Saba.”

Nails & Full Of Hell Stream Split 7″

Nails and Full Of Hell are streaming their new split 7″ via Decibel. The effort will be available on December 2.

Click the LINK to go to the stream.

Full Of Hell‘s Dylan Walker said the following:

“This split came together out of a mutual respect between our bands and the songs encapsulate where we were mentally when we wrote them. The Nails song is an external war against anyone that holds you down and devalues you. The Full Of Hell side is the inverse: an internal war against innate human violence in our genealogy and the struggle against complacent fear. Working with Closed Casket was an obvious choice in terms of releasing a record with its full potential. Justin puts priority in aesthetics just like we do. The physical art and packaging is always important and it’s good to collaborate with someone who feels the same.”

Nails Reportedly Go On Hiatus

It appears as if Nails have gone on hiatus. According to Lambgoat, the band have cancelled some European dates and that one promoter issued the following statement:

“Important: Unfortunately this show has been cancelled. Nails have gone on hiatus with no plan to play live or record again. For refunds, please contact your point of purchase.”

It is also significant to mention that the band also recently cancelled their This Is Hardcore Festival appearance:

“yeah, so um…some things have changed for Friday’s TIHC 2016 lineup. Due to unforeseen issues in the Nails camp, they will no longer be playing. We’re so bummed, we replaced them with THREE bands.
ALL OUT WAR, NOMADS, and PANZERBASTARD will now be bringing the ruckus on Friday, August 5th.”
