NAILS - Announce New Album "Every Bridge Burning" For Aug 30th + New Single 'Imposing Will' Out Now!

Southern California’s NAILS have revealed details today of their long-awaited, 4th full-length album, Every Bridge Burning. Their first record in 8 years will be released on August 30th with Nuclear Blast Records and features 10 tracks of pure, relentless aggression that can only be described as the sound of NAILS.

The tumultuous new album was produced by Kurt Ballou at God City Studio and features aptly diabolic artwork by Jef Whitehead.

While founding vocalist/guitarist Todd Jones has long been recognized as the driving creative force behind NAILS, it has also been announced the band has reemerged with new lineup that includes drummer Carlos Cruz (Warbringer), bassist Andrew Solis (Despise You, Apparition), and guitarist Shelby Lermo (Ulthar).

Today, NAILS gives fans a taste of what’s to come with the hostile new single ‘Imposing Will.’ 

‘Imposing Will’ is special to the record in that I knew we wanted it to be the opener,” explains Jones. “We wanted it to have the effect of an urgency; an immediacy in the music itself. When you push play, you get smacked in the face.”

For the first time in over 8 years, the blistering assault on our nervous system that can only be described as the sound of NAILS, has reemerged. With Carlos Cruz on drums, Andrew Solis on Bass, Shelby Lermo on Guitars, and Todd Jones on guitar & vocals, the upcoming studio album, EVERY BRIDGE BURNING, will be revealed August 30th, 2024 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The album artwork, a creation by Jef Whitehead, serves as a visual prelude to the auditory chaos—a stark representation of the aural brutality that NAILS delivers.

Recording for the album commenced in Massachusetts at God City Studio with Kurt Ballou (of CONVERGE), whose contribution is integral to the NAILS sound, as elucidated by Jones: “we’ve recorded every album with Kurt. He’s such an important ingredient as to how we present our music. When our fans want to hear NAILS, they want to hear something that is through the filter of Kurt’s engineering.” 

EVERY BRIDGE BURNING was born out of unwavering dedication to NAILS fans and the underground music scene. It echoes their commitment to authenticity and raw power. NAILS remains a beacon of rebellion and resilience in a world hungry for genuine expression. With no shortage of effort or meticulous song arrangement, the time has arrived to become engulfed in the ferocity of NAILS once again as EVERY BRIDGE BURNING unveils a new, but familiar chapter in extreme music.          

This band was modeled after some of my favorite bands; the type of bands where, when they put out an album, you know what it’s going to sound like,” describes Jones, “it’s the delivery of the expectation.” The sensory destroying musical onslaught that we’ve all been missing is back. NAILS is Todd Jones, Carlos Cruz, Andrew Solis, and Shelby Lermo.
