USA Nails put their stamp on the burgeoning London punk scene in early 2014 with a series of ferocious live shows and a slew of demo tracks. Their debut release ‘Sonic Moist’ (Smalltown America/Bigout Records/I Hate My Records/Unwork) followed shortly afterwards.
Born through a mutual love of all things noisy, raw and sickeningly filthy, USA Nails brings together members and ex-members of Oceansize, Hawk Eyes, Kong, Future of the Left, Silent Front and Dead Arms. Opting for a more stripped back approach to their other outfits, Nails adopt a strict policy to not over-think their music. Choosing raw energy, intensity and mood over technical expression.
Now the boys are set to return with their latest instalment of noise-rock-punk-psych: ‘No Pleasure’. FFO The Jesus Lizard, Wire and Neu, the quartet have crafted a record that sits comfortably among the work of contemporaries like Pissed Jeans, Destruction Unit and Institute. Listen to new track ‘I Am Normal’ here:
’No Pleasure’ will be available on special edition vinyl, CD and digital formats this November.

“Heavy, crushing, and aggressive post-hardcore…”Drowned in Sound
“Sonic Moist is as dank as its name, an irreverently nefarious journey into twisted and deformed rock music with the darkest of hearts.”
