Trent Reznor is getting Nine Inch Nails back together to start touring this summer, with an arena tour in the fall and continuing into 2014. There is no word on a new album yet, but it seems that he has been working on new songs for NIN as well as his How to Destroy Angels side project, who are also touring in the spring to promote their new album Welcome Oblivion.
The following statement was put out by Trent Reznor:
“Nine Inch Nails are touring this year.
I was working with Adrian Belew on some musical ideas, which led to some discussion on performing, which led to some beard-scratching, which (many steps later) led to the decision to re-think the idea of what Nine Inch Nails could be, and the idea of playing a show. Calls were made to some friends, lots of new ideas were discussed, and a show was booked – which led to another, which somehow led to a lot of shows.
The band is reinventing itself from scratch and will be comprised of Eric Avery, Adrian Belew, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Ilan Rubin, and me. The first shows will begin this summer, followed by a full-on arena tour of the US this fall, and lots of other dates worldwide to follow through 2014.
Lots of details and dates to come. See you soon.
