NAILS Bassist John Gianelli Also Quits the Band

This isn't looking good.

nails bassist leave

Nails is now just a one-man show consisting of guitarist and vocalist Todd Jones. Original drummer Taylor Young quit the band yesterday, and now original bassist John Gianelli has also quit.

Gianelli didn't offer much of an explanation aside from "To all my fans across the world that have been wondering I parted ways too. #classiclineup."

Young's departure was a little more eloquent, as he explained on social media yesterday "The band and I parted ways this past spring, and I played my final show with the band last December. I'll always be a tyrant; the band will always be a massive part of me, and I hope it keeps going.

He continued "If anybody has an inkling of a feeling that Nails can't make good music without me, that's simply not true as Todd's [Jones] attention to detail, and quality control is unmatched. It was a wild decade with Todd, John, Saba, Leon and others and I wouldn't trade it for anything. However, I cannot update you on the status of the band so no more questions about it please."

Last we heard from Nails was in 2019 with their two new songs "I Don't Want To Know You" and its b-side, "Endless Resistance", which featured a guest spot from Soulfly's Max Cavalera.
