Nails announce European Exodus tour dates in June, with a one-off London show‏

January 27, 2014


After selling out venues across the UK in November throughout their ‘Campaign For Elimination’ tour, Nails are now setting their sights on mainland Europe and have announced a run of shows, including headline slots and notable festival appearances in Finland, Belgium, France, Germany and Denmark. What’s more, they have announced an exclusive London show to kick things off. Todd Jones comments…
NAILS will be returning to European soil June-July 2014 to celebrate the release of Abandon All Life with our Tyrants across the Atlantic. We’ll be playing legendary metal festivals such as Tuska Metal Open Air, Graspop Metal Meeting, With Full Force Festival, and Roskilde in Denmark, as well as multiple headlining shows in Germany and one in Paris. Before arriving in Europe, we will be making a stop in London to play one exclusive show in the UK. Last November we played some of the best shows we have since our inception in the UK which ended with a sold out show of 500 maniacs at the Underworld. We’re going to play at a smaller venue this time around for the people who couldn’t get into the last gig in November. If it’s anything like our last London gig, it’ll be one for the history books as well. Looking forward to shaking European/UK soil with you all. HATRED AD INFINITUM

Abandon All Life landed in many end of year lists, here are just some of the rankings…
9 out of 50 – TERRORIZER
21 out of 25 – KERRANG!
and 24 out of 50 – METAL HAMMER, TOP 50, BEST OF THE REST

“Taking every facet of extreme metal and forcing it into short, sharp blasts of nauseatingly heavy white noise…It’s hard to pick any set highlights when the entire thing goes by in such a blur of spite-fuelled thrashing and gruesomely brutal, tar-thick riffage, but the title track of this year’s Abandon All Life album and the blood-and snot-covered spit-in-the-face of Tyrant and the rabid crowd even more berserk than previously. For a band this extreme to provoke such a reaction on their first visit means they must be doing something pretty special. And they are. This isn’t a gig – it’s a mauling” – 9/10 METAL HAMMER LIVE REVIEW

The brick-in-the-face urgency of Conform and Abandon All Life both stand out, but the songs have a way of blending together into one blinding, exhilarating assault.” – ROCK A ROLLA LIVE REVIEW

“‘God’s Cold Hands’ inspires some ludicrous acts of stage invasion, and the coda of ‘Depths’ alternately screams and thuds like Hell’s Own steel mill. Trimming fat from their performance wherever possible, the band rip through their entire recorded output with admirable stamina in just under an hour.”
