Four years after what everyone thought was a farewell tour for Nine Inch Nails (called ‘Wave Goodbye’ in 2009), the band proved there are no final goodbyes. Trent Reznor has announced on Monday, February 25, 2013, that the band plans to end their hiatus and tour extensively in 2013 and 2014. The new tour will take place with a new lineup.
The Nine Inch Nails (NIN) tour will start in the summer of 2013 with a couple of shows, followed by an arena tour in the fall 2013 in the US. This outing will again be followed by many more international dates in 2014. With a new tour comes a reinvented and improved band, which will now feature Reznor, along with former Nine Inch Nails members Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin, Eric Avery from Jane’s Addiction, Adrian Belew from King Crimson and Josh Eustis (Telefon of Tel Aviv).
Reznor revealed that the thought of touring came after he started working on some new musical ideas with Adrian Belew. During the discussions they talked about performing again. Though there was no mention of any new Nine Inch Nails music in this announcement, Reznor did admit recently that he was working on a handful of new songs.
How To Destroy Angels is another project, led by Reznor and they will release their debut full-length disc ‘Welcome Oblivion’ on March 5, 2013 via Columbia Records.
