Nails announce first show since going on hiatus

Three months after reportedly disbanding, and two days after revealing that they'd be releasing a split 7" with Full Of Hell, Southern California band Nails have now announced that they will perform at The Power Of The Riff 2016. Slated to take place on December 17 and December 18 in Los Angeles, CA, the event will also feature Neurosis and Wolves In The Throne Room, in addition to Pelican, Gatecreeper, Gag, and Bloodclot, in addition to any yet-to-be announced bands.

"after spending so much time apart and really growing as people, we decided that it's finally time to come back. Things have changed, the entire Bizarro Grain landscape is completely different than when we disbanded all those months ago. I feel like our presence in this scene is needed and we will do our best to bring the ruckus one more time." -Todd Jones

They are coming back to the Deathcore genre? What? Lol

anonymous 10/14/2016 1:52:09 PM

Isn't it time you lot came up with something new? You just keep cutting&pasting your old garbage. Same jive comments, new names (Daquan, really?)

Everyone acting fcking surprised when they literally never said they were breaking up. Watch out for their spring tour with Toxic Holocaust and (gay) Code Orange

anonymous 10/14/2016 2:01:49 PM

I love this band's unclean's but the lyrics and the attitude are childish and stupid.

anonymous 10/14/2016 2:07:10 PM

Jones added, "back to where it all started. I recall composing the first Bandana Thrash riff in a garage no more than a concrete block away from this legendary fest NAILS pioneered in.. I think it was '82. We got some young up and comers like Napalm Death and Infest into the lime light opening on that one."

anonymous 10/14/2016 2:08:48 PM

Band is absolute trash. They have a laptop for a bass player. I'm pretty sure non of them are from Birmingham. You couldn't pay me to watch them live.

anonymous 10/14/2016 2:13:22 PM

Los Angeles, CA is just meth labs and WalMarts, . Went there recently, will never go again.

anonymous 10/14/2016 2:16:03 PM

For some reason, I see that some one has replied 14 times, but am inable to see all 14. (only 13)

Los Angeles beats whatever hick town you're from.

anonymous 10/14/2016 2:18:13 PM

and now it (#14)appears. Never mind.

anonymous 10/14/2016 2:24:59 PM

Does this mean we can be one of them now? Or is it still "we can never be one of them". -.-

anonymous 10/14/2016 2:41:15 PM

I actually have it on good authority (from a voting member in the industry) that they are the early consensus front-runners to nab the best metal performance Grammy in February... edging out Metallica, Slayer, Ghost and Anthrax. You heard it here.

anonymous 10/14/2016 3:04:50 PM

"Los Angeles beats whatever hick town you're from." HA. I'm in a progressive enclave and there are ZERO hicks. Now go dust off your brush popper, put a new chaw in, hop in you 91 f150 and go see if Becky is werkin in town at tha local A&W drive in.

anonymous 10/14/2016 3:16:04 PM

Im so fcking tired of Nails. They always play around here and i get so bored watching them. So many fcking breakdowns. Hopefully Jon finds a better band.

Can we be one of us?

anonymous 10/14/2016 5:03:49 PM

Everyone loves this band...that's why everyone gives them grief

anonymous 10/14/2016 5:25:55 PM

Same type of comments post by same person with anon account names. Some people have mental issues here.

anonymous 10/14/2016 5:30:00 PM

(1) It is widely known in the music industry that Nails recent tour was a loss leading financial catastrophe. They had to rearrange seating to make the venues look full, and more than 40% of the tickets were bought back to create artificial demand then given away. This is no secret to any professional in the broader music industry in general.

anonymous 10/14/2016 5:30:30 PM

(2) It was a "Run-out" tour in industry terms of a fading band on their last tour. Nails is not even in the conversation anymore. It had a failed career as an band.

anonymous 10/14/2016 5:36:06 PM

^Billboard boxscore published 17 of their shows data and 17 shows earned $10,200. Average of $600 per show. Grossing over $600 for 1 hour performance is financial disaster!? They sold out most shows. You have said 'Run-out" tour'. Can you show some data or reference to support your claim?

anonymous 10/14/2016 5:37:45 PM

The tour was in the red. It cost more than it took in. A fact widely known. The venue rental and insurance alone are in the 10's of K's for the tour. Nearly 50% of all the houses were bought back. You have no understanding of any of this.

I can tell this POTR is gonna be boss

anonymous 10/14/2016 6:49:18 PM

fck guys who's allowed to be who now? Can we be one of us or them? Can they be us or themselves. What if no one was anyone and anyone was no one. Are they now omnipresent?!

anonymous 10/14/2016 6:54:41 PM

I gotta admit I saw these guys open for Dillinger back in '10 or '11 at a one off and I told Todd Jones his band was pretty cool. Thought nothing of it then I got a part time job working Knott's scary farm and all the cool kids pretty much jerked Nails off. I checked out abandon all life and was like meeehhh. It's gonna have to be a pass for me dawg. -Randy Jackson

anonymous 10/14/2016 11:59:45 PM

Sankus here. i'm actually in the industry as*hole and was naturally tapped to run flash lights from a backstage walkway to the front on Nails last tour. Was it ever sold out? I can't say that it was. Notwithstanding,, ground rules get enforced. Obstruct the lane... break your jaw with my latern. Ask Jones anything about power violence or bandana thrash...flattened to the concrete under a tour bus. Mention Justin Lowe... yeah mother fcker. Brian Sankus

anonymous 10/15/2016 12:01:41 AM

I don't recall the band or anyone from the band saying anything about a hiatus. Is that confirmed or is everyone a suck?

anonymous 10/15/2016 12:29:02 AM

You might somewhat be one of us.

anonymous 10/15/2016 12:39:59 AM

this band is homosexual with surgical precision

anonymous 10/15/2016 12:44:48 AM

oh god wtf

anonymous 10/15/2016 2:54:35 AM

Goddammit, look at what you all did. You mentioned them in jest enough that this band thought they actually had fans and now they are coming back. Good job, dumbasses.

anonymous 10/15/2016 8:24:15 AM

So the next hiatus will be in a month right?

anonymous 10/15/2016 9:49:57 AM

Hiatus would be an awesome name for a crust band.

Guys who beat up on their girlfriends are stoked.

This one time me and Donkeylips collected everyone's spare change to buy hamburgers for the camp. Everyone distracted Ugg as we snuck up the camp road to collect our delicious prized hamburgers

anonymous 10/17/2016 4:13:33 PM

This is dumb. They would have been better off not saying anything rather than getting some attention by announcing a "hiatus" and having what is left of their fanbase get all butthurt

anonymous 10/19/2016 5:43:25 AM

hype band that sucks. only see girls trying to be hard and former Suicide Silence fans wearing their march
