"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 man in your bed/like a hole in the head/so we always end up on the floor."
