Finding “Obscene Humanity” back in ’09 was just the perfect partner in crime to “Deconstruct” by Hatred Surge. For a long time, I just couldn’t stop spinning both those records and I knew NAILS was that kind of band which somehow someway would end up having a go at God City Records with Relapse or Deathwish Inc. just drooling on them.

Well, they did record with Kurt Ballou and Southern Lord put out their first two full-lengths cause Greg never sleeps on duty. Now it’s time for Nuclear Blast to reap what NAILS have been sowing, scheduling a new album for 2016. The thing “You Will Never Be One Of US” will be recorded this Xmas with you-know-who. Yes, you’re correct. Click here for the prize.

Todd Jones sums it all up:

“In fear of sounding redundant of how 97% of these pre-album release descriptions always come off, I won’t try to describe how our new album ‘You Will Never Be One Of Us’ sounds. What I will tell you is that the same care and the same attention went into this album as our previous albums Unsilent Death and Abandon All Life, and our new album sounds as inspired as either of those two full-length recordings.
Our new record has some new twists and turns that are built off the foundation we laid with our previous albums, as well as a lot of familiarity that you’ve come to expect from NAILS. ‘You Will Never Be One Of Us’ is for us, for our fans, and for anybody else who feels disgusted and fed-up with social-climbing impostors, trying to leech off of anything they’ve ever dedicated themselves to. I can say with 110% certainty: We will not let you down.”
