USA Nails (UK)

Bookings: Corrado elborracho.bookings AT gmail DOT com

We are USA Nails from London, England. We all used to be in other bands like Kong, Future Of The Left, Death Pedals, Silent Front etc. Maybe we are no-wave, maybe we are noise-rock, maybe we are post-punk. If you are familiar with the work of The Fall, or Wire, or Glenn Branca, or Arab On Radar, or Sonic Youth, maybe you would think we’ve ripped them off a bit.”

USA Nails formed in 2013. Their most recent release was a split LP with ex-Arab On Radar synth punks Psychic Graveyard on the legendary Skin Graft Records (USA) in April 2022. Their last (and fifth) full length – “Character Stop” –  was released in 2020 on Hex Records (USA) and Bigout Records (Europe). They also released a split 7” with Petbrick (ex-Sepultura) on God Unknown (UK) in 2021.

In the last few years, USA Nails have toured with Sub-Pop lovelies Metz and UK noise-rock legends Mclusky. They have completed numerous USA and European headline stints, as well as supporting the likes of Future Of The Left, Mission Of Burma, Cocaine Piss, Viagra Boys, Hey Colossus and Unsane.

They will feature at festivals and tour across the US, UK and Europe in 2022 and 2023, with a view to releasing their 6th LP in late 2023.
