In black and white, of course
Nine Inch Nails have shared a blistering live clip of the band performing ‘Ahead Of Ourselves’ on their current ‘Cold Black and Infinite Tour’, which has just been extended.
The clip, which you can watch below, was directed by Brook Linder and filmed at a frantic pace entirely in the third person and in black and white, taking place in the epicentre of the band’s ferocious live performance.
The video comes along with news that the band’s tour of North America is to be extended with an additional show at Mexico City’s El Plaza Condesa on November 19. It takes place the day after they headline the city’s Corona Capital festival the day prior.
They’re supported on the tour by indie legends The Jesus and Mary Chain.
‘Ahead Of Ourselves’ is featured on Trent Reznor and co.’s recent record ‘Bad Witch’, the conclusion of a trilogy that NME deemed the band’s “best release in a decade” in our five-star review in June.
The tour has featured a number of exciting live airings. At Phoenix’s Comerica Theatre, they performed 1992’s ‘Broken‘ EP in full for the first time. Meanwhile, at the Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Colorado, they played ‘The Perfect Drug’ for the first time ever.
For the third year in a row, the band failed to gain a nomination for the award. After this latest omission, Reznor compared the hallowed Hall to similar accolades, like the Grammys and the Oscars.
“I saw somebody write something online or comment on Twitter like, ‘What could be less rock and roll than the fuckin’ Hall Of Fame?’ And that is authentically how I feel about it. I’ll say this: It’s nice to be appreciated. It’s nicer when it feels like that’s coming from a place that you care about,” he told Stereogum.
