Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor had admitted that the band's new stage show could either be "the best thing ever" or a "spectacular disaster".

Reznor's band will play Reading and Leeds Festival this weekend (August 23 and 25) backed by a brand new stage show, inspired by Talking Heads' 1983 Stop Making Sense tour, that has been redesigned from scratch to work specifically to work outdoors.

"In terms of physical components, it's actually low-tech," Reznor said, speaking in this week's NME, available available digitally or on newsstands from tomorrow (August 21). "It's either going to be the best thing ever or a spectacular disaster."

Reznor also admitted that, having declared the end of Nine Inch Nails as a touring entity in 2009, he was prepared for criticism when he took the band back on the road again. "I guess I was ready for the backlash... I mean, I've seen The Cure on about eight different farewell tours. Kiss about 10," he said.

Before their Reading and Leeds sets this weekend, Nine Inch Nails will play an intimate gig at London's Scala tonight (August 20) and perform at Belsonic Festival in Belfast tomorrow (August 21).

Earlier today, the band unveiled a new track called 'Everything', the latest teaser from their forthcoming album 'Hesitation Marks', which is due for release on September 3. The album, their follow-up to 2008's 'The Slip', features guest appearances by bassist Pino Palladino, who regularly plays with The Who, and Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham.
