NIN announce first UK date is five years...

Nine Inch Nails follow the release of new album ‘The Fragile’, released on Nothing/Island on Monday, September 27, with their first UK show in five years.

NIN play Brixton Academy on November 29, tickets will be priced at #15.

Trent Reznor, quoted in this week’s Kerrang! magazine said that he almost quit music after a nervous breakdown following his production stint on Marilyn Manson‘s ‘Antichrist Superstar’ and the death of his 85 year old grandmother.

“It really came down to me thinking ‘ Do I really want to keep doing this?”‘. I don’t know anybody who just stopped when they were at the height of their career – other than those who killed themselves, which I wasn’t wanting to do,” he said.

He also said that he felt betrayed by what Manson wrote about him in his autobiography.

“He said some very ignorant, mean, malicious things which cross a line of what is decent,” said Reznor. “That friendship was a big fuck up for me. It fucked me up pretty good.”
