Trent Reznor has revealed a new Nine Inch Nails lineup and announced plans for a worldwide tour.
The new live NIN lineup consists of Reznor, Jane’s Addiction’s Eric Avery, Telefon Tel Aviv’s Josh Eustis, and King Crimson’s Adrian Belew, alongside ongoing collaborators Ilan Rubin and Alessandro Cortini.
The last time Nine Inch Nails toured Australia was in 2009 when they headlined Soundwave, which also happened to be part of their ‘Wave Goodbye’ tour.
Here’s the official word from Trent Reznor:
"NOTE FROM TRENT:
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.
