Nails go on sudden hiatus


Nails have gone on hiatus, according to their label Nuclear Blast.

There’s been no official word from the band at the time of writing but a spokesperson from Nuclear Blast told TeamRock that the California trio’s upcoming shows across the UK had been cancelled.

One of the affected dates was due to take place at London’s Underworld on November 7. But the venue issued a statement saying: “Unfortunately the show Nails plus Full Of Hell has now been cancelled due to the band going on sudden hiatus. Full ticket refunds are available from point of purchase.”

Todd Jones, John Gianelli and Taylor Young’s next live date was due to take place on August 5 at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory.

They released their third studio album You Will Never Be One Of Us last month. A list of Nails’ 2016 tour dates can be found below.
