Nails To Release New Album “Every Bridge Burning” In August, Premiere “Imposing Will”


Nails‘ long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s “You Will Never Be One Of Us” has officially been announced. That record has been titled “Every Bridge Burning” and is on course for an August 30th release on Nuclear Blast. As with all Nails albums thus far, this new opus was once again produced by Converge‘s Kurt Ballou at his GodCity Studio in Salem, MA.

The group’s linchpin Todd Jones is joined by a revitalized lineup on this album, with drummer Carlos Cruz (Warbringer), bassist Andrew Solis (Despise You, Apparition), and guitarist Shelby Lermo (Ulthar) having all been welcomed into the outfit. Jones offered:

“This band was modeled after some of my favorite bands; the type of bands where, when they put out an album, you know what it’s going to sound like. It’s the delivery of the expectation.”

Meanwhile, the first track to meet a release from this upcoming effort also opens it. Jones commented:

“‘Imposing Will‘ is special to the record in that I knew we wanted it to be the opener. We wanted it to have the effect of an urgency; an immediacy in the music itself. When you push play, you get smacked in the face.”
