Trent Reznor reveals how LCD Soundsystem influenced the upcoming Nine Inch Nails tour

"It just fucking felt good"

Trent Reznor has revealed how the experience of watching LCD Soundsystem live has influenced the upcoming Nine Inch Nails tour.

This week saw the industrial metal veterans announce details of a new mini album ‘Bad Witch‘, before sharing new track ‘God Break Down The Door‘. With fans eager to hear new material on their upcoming world tour, which includes two shows in the UK, Reznor has revealed how NIN are planning to up their game in terms of the stage production and overall experience.

“We went to see LCD Soundsystem’s show at the Palladium,” Reznor told Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “You know they could’ve played at the Forum but they chose to play a bunch nights in a smaller room…we left talking about it for a week. We like LCD but we were blown away…it just fucking felt good and it was exciting and it was right there and everybody was into it.


“We thought we want to do something in the world of that, where it feels like, if you get in to see the show, you get a unique experience. You are not in row a million with the security guard bitching at you.”

Nine Inch Nails will be performing as part of Robert Smith’s Meltdown in London on June 22, before headlining Royal Albert Hall on June 24. For tickets and more information, visit here.

The band will release the new six track EP ‘Bad Witch’ on June 22.
