Eyesore & The Jinx’s new one ‘No More Nails’ is the first single to come from their forthcoming debut album, ‘Jitterbug’. The new album was recorded at Yellowbird Studio during the Summer of 2022 and produced by Daniel Fox. The band have also announced a string of shows throughout July and have also shared details of a headline date in their home city of Liverpool in September.
This new single has picked up early support from Amazing Radio, who stuck it straight onto their C list. Alongside a variety of blog coverage it was also selected for a Record of The Day feature.
‘No More Nails’ sets the scene on the topic of ‘Jitterbug’, with Josh Miller of the fidgety-post-punk trio saying, “When setting out to write our debut album, I didn’t have a theme in mind. Instead I chose to write about whichever subject felt most pertinent at the time. Over the course of several months though, it became clear that there was a consistent thread amongst the songs regarding control or lack thereof, particularly in relation to the human body."
"For as long as I can remember I’ve bitten my finger nails compulsively, often til they bleed. Lately they have resembled what a close family member called ‘cornflakes’ owing to their gross, little, distorted shape. It’s a habit I’ve tried to shake many times, but have failed at. I’ve speculated as to why I do this, and I don’t think it’s too much of a leap to assume that this is a symptom of an ongoing anxiety disorder."
"‘No More Nails’ then, is a song about compulsive behaviours and how we use our bodies to map our brains' complex internal processes. It’s also a song about my gross, little cornflake fingernails that I’ve bitten into oblivion, and will likely continue to do so for the rest of my days.”
All early pre-orders of the album will go towards funding its release through Bandcamp. The album will be widely available through record stores at a later date. ‘Jitterbug’ is being pressed on clear red vinyl featuring a fully illustrated gatefold. It is also available on CD with gatefold cover, too.
