“We are USA NAILS from London, England. We all used to be in other bands like Kong, Future Of The Left, Death Pedals, Silent Front etc. Maybe we are no-wave, maybe we are noise-rock, maybe we are post-punk. If you are familiar with the work of The Fall, or Wire, or Glenn Branca, or Arab On Radar, or Sonic Youth, maybe you would think we’ve ripped them off a bit.”

USA Nails formed in 2013. Their most recent release was a split LP with ex-Arab On Radar synth punks Psychic Graveyard on the legendary Skin Graft Records (USA) in April 2022. Their last (and fifth) full length – “Character Stop” – was released in 2020 on Hex Records (USA) and Bigout Records (Europe). They also released a split 7” with Petbrick (ex-Sepultura) on God Unknown (UK) in 2021.

In the last few years, USA Nails have toured with Sub-Pop lovelies Metz and UK noise-rock legends Mclusky. They have completed numerous USA and European headline stints, as well as supporting the likes of Future Of The Left, Mission Of Burma, Cocaine Piss, Viagra Boys, Hey Colossus and Unsane.

They will feature at festivals and tour across the US, UK and Europe in 2022 and 2023, with a view to releasing their 6th LP in late 2023.

“A truly bracing racket” – Wire

“Heavy, crushing, and aggressive post-hardcore” – The Needle Drop

THE SOMNAMBULIST is a Berlin based music project with an ongoing history of more than ten years, which combines the input of an international musicians’ collective with unique, ever changing interpretations in an interdisciplinary approach to view music as a transient infinite medium. Their intent to both respectfully acknowledge and surpass definitions and boundaries of genres are a key element as to why it seems difficult, even nonsensical to attach a singular style to their work. If pinned down, they have been known to combine characteristics from Psychedelic and Alternative Rock to elements of Jazz, Experimental and Classical Music.

They have been deemed by critics as following in the tradition of Berlin inspired musical innovation as done by David Bowie, Brian Eno and Iggy Pop in the late 70’s and subsequently developed by The Bad Seeds and Einstürzende Neubauten. Marco Bianciardi, Leon Griese and Nicolas Haumann are the current members of The Somnambulist which, after four albums, continues to be characterized by meticulous, determined and febrile explorations, proving itself against all odds with success in staying true to its artistic nature.

„Some More Songs Lost in Themselves“ is out on December 2 and it’s the first of two upcoming EPs featuring the first new studio material since the release of „Hypermnesiac“ in 2020: six impressionistically brief songs that develop and refine the band’s path undertaken in the preceding album of simplification, synthesis and innovation of their language; featuring more accessible, direct and effective musical solutions, while retaining the courage, tension and sense of fracture typical of their previous works.

„The Berlin-based trio defies musical classification, and it’s all by design. They are some of the most authentic musicians you’ll ever find, always reaching for new heights of originality and creativity every time they set out to record new music.“
