London punks out to prove their normality
USA Nails put their stamp on the burgeoning London punk scene in early 2014 with a series of ferocious live shows and a slew of demo tracks. Their debut release ‘Sonic Moist’ (Smalltown America/Bigout Records/I Hate My Records/Unwork) followed shortly afterwards. Born through a mutual love of all things noisy, raw and sickeningly filthy, USA Nails brings together members and ex-members of Oceansize, Hawk Eyes, Kong, Future of the Left, Silent Front and Dead Arms. Opting for a more stripped back approach to their other outfits, Nails adopt a strict policy to not over-think their music. Choosing raw energy, intensity and mood over technical expression.
Now the boys are set to return with their latest instalment of noise-rock-punk-psych: ‘No Pleasure’. FFO The Jesus Lizard, Wire and Neu, the quartet have crafted a record that sits comfortably among the work of contemporaries like Pissed Jeans, Destruction Unit and Institute.
’No Pleasure’ will be available on special edition vinyl, CD and digital formats this November.
