Somehow in their 25 years as a band, Nine Inch Nails never got around to playing late night. Not a single show. But that all changed last night (Nov. 8) when the band made their late night debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The fact that they’re still playing their brazenly uncommercial music to large crowds today is equally impressive. Judging by the power of the band, and the passion of the thousands gathered at the Prudential Center, they’ll be able to do it for years to come.
If Nine Inch Nails’ 1994 masterpiece ‘Downward Spiral’ was an opera of depression-induced suicide, then new album ‘Hesitation Marks’ is an opera where Trent Reznor grieves, forgives and buries the body.
Here’s a primer on Trent Reznor’s many, many projects after Nine Inch Nails waved goodbye in 2009.
With the band’s comeback album on the horizon, Nine Inch Nails are releasing a slew of behind-the-scenes extras, including a tour doc and 45 minutes of Trent Reznor talking about all things NIN.
The studio version of the song premiered on Zane Lowe’s show on BBC Radio 1 last night (August 22) and shows a softer side of the industrial band.
At Nine Inch Nails’ first show since 2009 at Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival, they premiered their new song “Copy Of A,” off their upcoming album, Hesitation Marks (due September 3). Now all of those fans who were unable to catch the song in person are able to stream the track for themselves.
