NIN @ T5, 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
Trent Reznor is gonna be real busy for the forseeable future. While we already knew his new project How to destroy angels_ would be touring this year (including two shows in the NYC area), he's also reviving Nine Inch Nails as well. Says Trent:
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.UPDATE: Billboard says NIN are playing Lollapalooza.
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.
