Nine Inch Nails to tour with Soundgarden
Trent Reznor has a pretty noted history of dissing Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. (Remember when he basically accused Cornell of making a record to sound exactly like what's on the radio? Aka putting commerce before art?) Yeah, we do too.
No matter what, these guys will have to put professional and personal differences aside when both bands hit the road as part of a summer co-headlining tour, featuring support from Death Grips on all dates. Tickets went on sale to the public back in March, and the tour officially kicks off on July 19 in Las Vegas, Nevada at Planet Hollywood.
Both bands are celebrating the 20th anniversary of two significant projects. Nine inch Nails released "The Downward Spiral" and Soundgarden released "Superunknown" back on March 8, 1994. In fact, a 20th anniversary reissue is one of the key reasons the band is back on the road. Two different deluxe albums rolled out June 3 via A&M/UME, and feature demos, B-sides, and rehearsals. The Super Deluxe Edition even comes with a lenticular cover, a hardbound book, liner notes and never-before-seen photos.
Last year, Reznor and NIN came together again for the release of "Hesitation marks," not to mention a tour that took them through Belgium, Holland, Germany, Ireland, Great Britain, Italy and Switzerland before returning to the U.S.
The upcoming tour with Soundgarden will hit all points of the country, including noted stops at the Susquehanna Bank Center (Camden, NJ), Farm Bureal Live (Virginia Beach), and the PNC Music Pavilion (Charlotte, NC). The tour wraps August 25 at the Hollywood Bowl in California.
No 'Hesitation' from Nine Inch Nails (Updated August 8, 2013)
Nine Inch Nails didn't just come back, they "Came Back Haunted." The band, with frontman Trent Reznor at the helm, returned to the stage after a four-year hiatus at this year's Lollapalooza in a performance that had everyone talking.
It's hard to believe that Reznor and Co. first graced the stage during Lollapalooza's inaugural run in 1991. It was then that the 26-year-old Reznor, an angst-ridden rocker, often wrapped sets by destroying everything in his path (including guitars, keyboards and other sound equipment). So for those who are witnessing the singer's re-birth, of sorts, the Reznor of 2013 was a welcome change indeed.
It's not that Nine Inch Nails has lost the fire. Instead, they are very much the "revitalized and refocused" band that Rezner promised when he announced in February 2013 that he was ending his performance hiatus. The 23-song set at Lollapalooza served as evidence of that, touching on the band's past while completely embracing the future. The music came to life not just with electro pulses and additional keyboards and drum kits, but the five-member group was strong on searing guitars in front of a large series of LED panels and other visuals that served to enhance the performance.
There are more forthcoming tour dates from Nine Inch Nails, and in recent weeks the band has begun unveiling cuts from a brand new album, "Hesitation Marks." That project will arrive on September 3, 2013, and fans can now pre-order tickets to the "Tension" 2013 tour. It will visit Belgium, Holland, Germany, Ireland, Great Britain, Italy and Switzerland before returning stateside.
Nine Inch Nails Tickets** - An Awesome Puncture Wound in the Music Industry
Industrial music became such a popular sub-genre of a certain type of rock music that one band came out in 1989 to take the whole music industry by storm with it: it was called Nine Inch Nails. To be fair, though, it's not necessarily accurate to say that this is a music 'group.' Rather, it personifies one creative mind: a man by the name of Trent Reznor. He was born May 17, 1965, in Mercer, Pennsylvania, with an idea to hit the music industry in a big way. Loving the idea of an industrial style of hard rock music, giving birth to a type of angst and death-style sound that became so infectious that he ended up signing with TVT Records for a Nine Inch Nails debut.
Nine Inch Nails Tickets - The Music of the Nails
In 1989, Pretty Hate Machine came out and received national acclaim for the style of rock music Reznor put out. One of the defining singles was 'Head Like a Hole.' Needless to say, TVT wanted to capitalize on the hit that was the Nails, working on Reznor coming out with a second effort -- that was Downward Spiral, another huge hit. The defining single on that album was, of course, 'Closer.' Reznor didn't stop there, releasing probably one of his more commercial works, an album entitled The Fragile back in 1999, featuring a tremendous hit in the single 'We're in This Together' and then more than a half-decade later came out with another major album by the name of Year Zero.
Nine Inch Nails Tickets - The Sound of the Nails in Your Head
Reznor is nothing short of intensity, especially on stage. His vocals dig into your soul, reach into your heart and pull all the blood out until you're so fragile from the frailty that you almost have to rely on him as your source of life. That's the essence of Nine Inch Nails right there.
