Nails frontman: "I hate Record Store Day"


Nails frontman/guitarist Todd Jones was recently interviewed by Teamrock.com, you can read some excerpts below.


About the Record Store Day, he said: "I don’t fuck with Record Store Day at all, I hate Record Store Day. It’s completely fucked over things for regular bands – go ahead and have your multi-colored vinyl reissues you fucking poseur. The fact is that when [Nails‘ 2013 album] Abandon All Life came out before the pressing plants were backed up, we handed our record in to Southern Lord on January 15 and our record was out by March 20. For [upcoming album] You Will Never Be One Of Us we handed everything in to the record label on January 20 and our record’s not coming out until June 17. Why? Because of fucking Record Store Day, that’s why."

He continued: "All you people out there that love Record Store Day have fun with your stupid multi-colored vinyl, but all your favorite bands’ records are taking six months longer because of all that poseur bullshit. That’s what it comes down to."
