Reformed band put 75-minute long film online, which also features live collaboration with Marilyn Manson
Nine Inch Nails have posted a full-length version of a documentary about their ‘Self Destruct’ tour online – scroll down to watch it.
As Spin reports, the 75-minute film chronicles the band’s tour from 1994 to 1996 and features appearances from David Bowie and Marilyn Manson. The footage was originally only available on 1997’s Closure video.
Reznor recently announced the return of Nine Inch Nails after spending time working on a number of film scores and also writing and recording an album with his other band, How To Destroy Angels. Nine Inch Nails will perform their only UK shows of 2013 at Reading and Leeds, performing directly before headliners Biffy Clyro.
Speaking to NME about the possibility of fans hearing new material during the festival sets, Reznor said: “There isn’t any new material to play except from a couple of tracks Adrian (Belew, King Crimson guitarist and new member of Nine Inch Nails) and I started experimenting on that were intended to go on a greatest hits record. We decided to push that back to 2014, and there’s no new record scheduled at this point.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Reznor spoke about the make-up of Nine Inch Nails live shows and what fans should expect. “The intention is to reconstruct songs based on this new instrumentation and only play songs we as a band feel good about. With Nine Inch Nails last time, I felt that I’d explored that kind of bludgeoning rock thing in a lot of different ways, like I’d done everything I could do with that format.”
