Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor has told fans not to waste their money buying the latest reissue of their debut album 'Pretty Hate Machine'.

The singer took to Twitter to urge people to "ignore" the new re-release, which he criticised for being a "record label bullshit move".

Nine Inch Nails originally released 'Pretty Hate Machine' in 1989 and Reznor worked with sound engineer Tom Baker on a remastered version of the LP which was released in November last year. That version also featured a cover of Queen’s 'Get Down, Make Love', which was on the B-side of their 1991 single 'Sin'.

Reznor posted a message on Twitter which read: "NIN fans, don’t waste your money on this version of PHM that was just released", followed by a link to the band’s online catalogue, which describes the latest reissue as being "very similar to the original release. This is not a remastered release".

He then described it as "a record label bullshit move repackaging the old version. Ignore please".

Earlier this year, Reznor revealed that he was preparing to work under the Nine Inch Nails moniker again. Although he claimed in 2009 that he would be winding down live performances with the band, he said: "Nine Inch Nails is not dead and I plan to focus on that next."
