Taylor Young Announces His Exit From Nails


Taylor Young has announced his departure from Nails, issuing the below statement on the matter. Young, who also handles guitars and backing vocals in Twitching Tongues, had been serving as Nails‘ drummer. In a post shared yesterday regarding the newly released 10th anniversary edition of Nails‘ “Unsilent Death“, Young offered:

“Here we have my first and final recorded contribution to NAILS. The 10th anniversary version of Unsilent Death is out now on Southern Lord Records featuring two previously unreleased songs, as well as the Obscene Humanity 7” remixed and remastered with those two songs.

The band and I parted ways this past spring, and I played my final show with the band last December. I’ll always be a TYRANT; the band will always be a massive part of me, and I hope it keeps going. If anybody has an inkling of a feeling that NAILS can’t make good music without me, that’s simply not true as Todd’s attention to detail, and quality control is unmatched. It was a wild decade with Todd, John, Saba, Leon and others and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. However, I cannot update you on the status of the band so no more questions about it please.”
