London based noise-punks USA Nails release their third album, ‘Shame Spiral’, on June 16th 2017 through French DIY stalwarts Bigout Records and one of London’s newest and most exciting underground labels, Hominid Sounds.
It’s been a busy 18 months for USA Nails as they’ve toured Europe, recorded and released a 7″ for Too Pure Singles Club and have even been played on the actual radio. On a station you can listen to in the car, not just on a computer. But now they are back with their third release and a spattering of UK and EU dates.
Their desire to record live, and the instinctive and straightforward way in which they approach writing and recording has resulted in a fiercely compelling record that is as endearing as it is primitive.
No less loud, brash or direct as their previous album, Shame Spiral brilliantly captures the band’s descent into the dark depths that their beloved post-punk, noise-rock and no-wave predecessors often probed. Their brand of sarcastic musings compliment this stark aesthetic with rants on London house prices, unrealistic aspirational reality television, charity shop vinyl hoarders, Kraftwerk and the gun toting Phil Spector.
In advance of the album, USA Nails released the single « Stuck For Inspiration / Oven Degreaser Lisa » on the renowned Banquet imprint, Too Pure in December 2016. In addition to this, they will also pinch off another 6 track 7″ EP through No Iguana Records in spring 2017.
Notes to editors:
USA Nails members each spent their youth being the most unpopular members of bands that some people liked; Kong, Silent Front, Hawk Eyes, Future of the Left and Dead Arms.
USA Nails may appeal to fans of The Fall, Devo, Pissed Jeans and early Sonic Youth.

Gnod. What to say about Gnod? Tripped out psych and drone noise collective that will astound. Originally purchased on digital, I went back for the vinyl. This was the record that got me through 2017 and continues to see me through when the psycho right-wing capitalist fascist industrial death machine gets me down. Eve McGivern
