The Blackboard Nails
The Blackboard Nails are The Blackboard Nails, and the only thing you can do about it is get into them now before everybody else does. On the strength of their sound alone -- a sound powered by Stones grooves, Jet rock hooks and harmonies all their own -- The Blackboard Nails have toured the United Kingdom twice, including a stint at Liverpool's renowned Sound City Festival, and they've recorded with producer Kato Khandwala (The Pretty Reckless, Paramore, Blondie). That session yielded the band's first single, "Slow Down," a midtempo romp whose first line says it all: "You need another minute in bed/like a hole in the head/so we always end up on the floor." With recent appearances at Irving Plaza and The Rockwood Music Hall, and several festivals, the attention is high. The reviews are raving. The fans are multiplying. The Blackboard Nails are here.
