We cannot thank these folks enough for supporting METAL, and their belief in Naildriver! Support these websites, and request Naildriver to let them know that you believe is us too!!
-REVERBNATION. Holy Crap. Somehow, some way, this little band in Central PA has resonated with metal fans and is climbing the charts at an unprecedented rate. There are over 13,000 bands on R.N. on their USA Metal chart alone, and as of this blog post, Naildriver sits at #389. That's in the top 3%, people. Globally in Metal on RN, there are over 150,000 bands. Naildriver sits as of this blog post at #840. GLOBALLY. You do the math. And that, my friends, is due to each and every one of you. Words cannot express how appreciative we are. Truly humbling.
-SOCIAL MEDIA: It's done gone and blowed all up, and we want you to follow along on this wild ride! There are lots of links for our social stuff, so here's a list of them for you to check out, "like", follow, and share!!

--Naildriver HQ, 2/21/14. 7PM EST--
Pennsylvania metal band Naildriver has announced that their concert slated for March 22nd at McGarvey's Bar has been selected as the official release party for their new EP, "The White Devil Chronicles, Vol.1". McGarvey's, located in Altoona, PA, has long been Naildriver's unofficial "home base", stretching back to it's days when it was known as Aldo's. The band is encouraging fans to join them to celebrate the official release of "The White Devil Chronicles, Vol.1", with a listening of the EP and a two-pronged show featuring opening band Writing Off Tomorrow, and a feature-length set from Naildriver. Copies of the EP will be available for sale at the show for only $5 per disc.
In addition, Naildriver has also announced that a partially crowd-shot video for their hit song "Seal The Exits" will be shot during the CD Release Show. Producer/Director John Scarfone will be capturing the ferocity of Naildriver's live performance of the crowd favorite song, and fans are encouraged to bring their own personal HD capable video cameras to assist in shooting the video. "This gives fans a chance to get involved with Naildriver, by shooting their own interpretation of our performance of 'Exits'" says drummer Kevin Siegel. "We couldn't be doing what we are doing without them, and we thought it would be pretty cool to see a Naildriver performance from a fan's point of view. Plus, working with John, we're sure to get a super-high quality video that will be a combination of professional angles and textures along with the rawness of the fan video!"
The show will begin at 10:30PM EST.

Okay, people, here is your chance to keep up with Naildriver on the go!
We have created and released our very own Android App!! Now you can check us out and find out what's going on with Naildriver from anywhere!! Music, photos, show dates, news, and Naildriver-related social media right from your Android phone or tablet! Any time we add a show, upload a pic, make a news announcement, or add a tune, you'll know about it before anyone else!! Now, before the complaining starts, here's the answer to the question "Why isn't your app on iPhones??": Because we need $300 per year to list it in the iTunes store. Android is free, and in the metal world, free is GOOD.
So, the burning question is: How do I get this fancy new heavy metal internet application? Well, you will NOT find it at GooglePlay. It's on our ReverbNation page. You will find it and be able to grab it by following the instructions below.
1. Visit www.reverbnation.com/naildriver on your Android tablet or Android phone. The site will automatically utilize the mobile site to streamline your viewing.
2. You'll see a notificaton that "This artist has a mobile app". Click "get it free on your Android device. Your phone/tablet will download the .apk file (app file) to your device.
***THIS IS IMPORTANT*** You will need to check your device's security settings, as many devices are set to block apps not downloaded at GooglePlay. Go into your security settings for your device and ensure that you are able to install and run apps from outside sources. If you don't, you will not be able to install or run this application. There is NOTHING harmful built into our app. We would never compromise the security of our fans and friends.
3. Once the app is downloaded, open up your "downloads" folder and tap the app to install.
4. Tap the shiny new icon on your screen and enjoy the metal goodness!!
Again, please "SHARE" this post with as many of your friends as you can! "Liking" it is cool, but does not spread the word, and that's what we are trying to do, and need YOUR help with! Spread the word, and we hope to see you very soon!!
