Nails cancel tour, reportedly go on hiatus

If new reports from European concert promoters are to be believed, Southern California's Nails have gone on hiatus. The band had been scheduled to tour Europe this fall with Full Of Hell, however, several of the shows have officially been cancelled. One promoter published this explanation:
"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."
That doesn't sound promising. The timing seems odd as Nails have been riding a wave of momentum following the release of their acclaimed new record, You Will Never Be One of Us. Then again, frontman Todd Jones has never been predictable, and he recently revealed to Decibel that the band almost broke up shortly after signing with Nuclear Blast in 2014.

where's ja rule to make sense of all this


anonymous 7/25/2016 9:13:00 AM

This turn of events is categorical proof that Nails are, in fact, a hardcore band at heart. Hardcore is a flame that burns fast then smokes out before everyone can enjoy it first-hand. The other bands carry the torch. Metal bands have far greater longevity than hardcore bands. Doesn't make metal better, just makes it more stable. Nails is hardcore as fck.

anonymous 7/25/2016 1:00:51 PM

Todd jones is his own worst enemy , although totally unoriginal nails' music is not terrible but the dudes arrogance and general attitude towards everything causes people to write articles shitting on him for example. Maybe being a hardcore elitist made him beleive metal folk would buy the bullshit he was trying sell but obviously that didn't happen


anonymous 7/25/2016 1:05:25 PM

Now that Nails is over Chaka says Burn is ending again. Another over hyped band bites the dust, because of an ego maniac frontman. Maybe Chaka and Todd can tour.


anonymous 7/25/2016 1:05:43 PM

Jones realized even the band could never be one of us. Realized its just not worth it.

Chaka and Franz are starting an R&B hardcore group. Todd Jones to produce. It's going to be called Burnstile. I hear Franz is writing and playing all the bass tracks. Chaka said he will emotional thought provoking lyrics with political undertones.


anonymous 7/25/2016 3:28:28 PM

I honestly think all music will now be banned in the US because of Jones putting NAILS on hiatus. He's the Godfather of sound and invented musical instruments we now know as guitars.
