Trent Reznor Announces Return Of Nine Inch Nails

February 25, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Pitchfork reports that Trent Reznor has officially announced that Nine Inch Nails will return for a tour in the summer and fall.

The lineup will include Reznor, Eric Avery of Jane’s Addiction, Adrian Belew of King Crimson, and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv, along with previous collaborators Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin.

Here’s his statement:


Nine Inch Nails are touring this year.

I was working with Adrian Belew on some musical ideas, which led to some discussion on performing, which led to some beard-scratching, which (many steps later) led to the decision to re-think the idea of what Nine Inch Nails could be, and the idea of playing a show. Calls were made to some friends, lots of new ideas were discussed, and a show was booked – which led to another, which somehow led to a lot of shows.

The band is reinventing itself from scratch and will be comprised of Eric Avery, Adrian Belew, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Ilan Rubin, and me. The first shows will begin this summer, followed by a full-on arena tour of the US this fall, and lots of other dates worldwide to follow through 2014.

Lots of details and dates to come. See you soon.


How to Destroy Angels, Reznor’s side project with his wife Mariqueen Maandig and collaborators Rob Sheridan and Atticus Ross, will release their debut album Welcome on March 5 through Columbia.
