Powerviolence practitioners NAILS confirmed their long-awaited return last month with the announcement of the band's fourth full length album set to land August 30th via Nuclear Blast Records.

Every Bridge Burning marks NAILS' first studio album release in eight years and the first with the reconfigured line-up of drummer Carlos Cruz of Warbringer, bassist Andrew Solis of Despise You and Apparition as well as guitarist Shelby Lermo of Ulthar. 

Spearheaded by NAILS founder, frontman and sonic architect Todd Jones, the latest from NAILS finds the band building on their brand of sonic brutality, complimented by the skillful supervision of celebrated producer Kurt Ballou at God Head Studios. 

Introducing the project, NAILS shared the blistering first single last month, "Imposing Will" - a sub 90-second onslaught unloading metallic relentlessness, strengthened by the audacious vocals of Todd Jones out front. 

Back with a second showing from the pending full length, NAILS has dropped a 3-minute firebomb of a track with, "Give Me the Painkiller". A furious tailwhip of blackened thrash, the blistering second preview further asserts NAILS is at the top of their game. 



Along with the arrival of Every Bridge Burning, NAILS is also set to perform a stretch of live dates following the release of the album. In addition to dates with the likes of 200 Stab Wounds and Xibalba, NAILS will be featured at this year's New England Metal & Hardcore Festival along with a trek overseas with an appearance at Damnation Festival in Manchester, UK. The current list of dates can be found below. 

Every Bridge Burning arrives August 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and features cover art by Jef Whitehead. Pre-order the album - HERE
