Trent Reznor makes album available for fans to hear one week before its release
Nine Inch Nails are streaming new album ‘Hesitation Marks’, one week before its release.
The album, which will be released on September 3 and is the follow-up to 2008’s ‘The Slip’, is availble to stream on iTunes now. Produced by frontman Trent Reznor, the album features guest appearances by bassist Pino Palladino, who regularly plays with The Who, and Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham.
Nine Inch Nails played at Reading & Leeds Festival this weekend (August 23-25) and became embroiled in a row with festival boss Melvin Benn, who hit back at Trent Reznor after he said they had been “fucked” on the band’s production. Reznor tweeted about tonight’s performance, saying: “Should be an unusual show tonight at Reading… the lying promoter and the band (Biffy Clyro) following us (whoever the fuck they are) fucked us on our production.”
Melvin Benn has responded to Reznor’s tweets, saying “The truth is there’s no truth in the statement. The contract hasn’t changed since they signed up to it.” Asked if Reznor was perhaps feeling a bit sore about playing before a band he hadn’t heard of, he said “I couldn’t possibly comment.”
Reznor said nothing throughout his 75 minute set tonight as his band performed against a bank of blue lights, cloaked in heavy fog, creating a moody, intense atmosphere. The slow building set gradually ramped up into a stomping finale as they slammed through ‘Terrible Lie’, ‘March Of The Pigs’, ‘Survivalism’ and ‘Wish’.
