Nine Inch Nails announce 'fucking great' new album
Trent Reznor said he has finished recording the follow-up to 2008's 'Slip'
Trent Reznor has announced plans for the follow-up to 2008's 'The Slip' which he has been working on with Alan Moulder and Atticus Ross. In statement, the frontman said the album is "fucking great". He commented:
I've been less than honest about what I've really been up to lately. For the last year I've been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!
Trent Reznor recently revealed that band's former guitarist Robin Finck will rejoin the group for their forthcoming tour. "I am proud to announce that the tour lineup now includes the incredible Robin Finck. The addition of Robin to the mix of players I've assembled makes this band incredibly powerful and versatile," Reznor said on the band's Facebook page "We are deep in the rehearsal process and it feels exciting and great to be back at this. Lots of information, surprises and sweat headed your way. Stay tuned!"
The news came after Eric Avery announced that he was leaving the band. The musician – who was a founding member of Jane's Addiction – said he was "overwhelmed" after recently touring with Garbage and didn't feel like he could commit to another year and a half on the road "with all the intensity that Nails demands".
Nine Inch Nails are set to play Reading and Leeds Festivals this August, as well as Lollapalooza in Chicago and Jay-Z's Made In America Festival in Philadelphia this summer, with more tour dates to be announced.
