Nails have issued a video for their track Savage Intolerance.
It features on the California hardcore outfit’s third album You Will Never Be One Of Us, which will be released June 17 via Nuclear Blast.
Frontman Todd Jones says the song is ripped right out of today’s headlines.
Jones tells Rolling Stone: “I wanted to make something lyrically that matched the intensity of the music. I can’t go online or turn on the TV or listen to talk radio these days without hearing something that’s going down with ISIS – these people are just totally intolerant about anything and everything that’s going on around them, and they just don’t give a fuck, and I think that’s total bullshit.
“I believe in peace; I think people should live in peace. But the fact is, that’s what’s going on, so we wrote a song about it.”
The trio of Jones, bassist John Gianelli and drummer Taylor Young have previously issued a clip for the project’s punishing title track.
The follow-up to 2013’s Abandon All Life was produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou.
Nails will launch the record with summer shows across North America starting June 10 in Los Angeles. A 16-date autumn run in Europe will see four UK stops, including an appearance at the Damnation Festival in Leeds, UK.
You Will Never Be One Of Us is available for pre-order on CD and vinyl via Nuclear Blast.
