It seems like its been awhile since we’ve heard what is happening in the Nine Inch Nails camp and despite a couple of hiatuses they are back for the attack and have lined out their upcoming tour. The manner of getting tickets should be very interesting to you readers so check the press release, and dates near you. I’ll be back at the close with some editorial.
The Press Release:
Nine Inch Nails will launch COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018 on September 13 with support The Jesus and Mary Chain. The band will bring their “musical, visual, emotional sensory onslaught,” as hailed by The New York Times, to some of the most iconic venues in the USA – including two-night stands at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (September 18 and 19), New York City’s Radio City Music Hall (October 13 and 14) and the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago (October 25 and 26). It will culminate with four shows at the Palladium in Los Angeles (December 7, 8, 11 and 12). See below for itinerary.
St. Patrick’s Day one loaded with revelry, band lineup dramas and tour announcements and since I had to focus my time on the lineup dramatic stuff I waited until today to get the posting about the tour announcements to you. For those who might have missed what I am talking about, it seems as though Angela Gossow has stepped down from Arch Enemy and now the band will have Alissa White-Gluz from The Agonist in her place. Alissa’s former band mates also announced her replacement and as far as one of the tours being announced, we learned that KISS and Def Leppard would hit the road for a kick ass Summer tour. Now onto the other big tour announcement as Industrial Metal legends Nine Inch Nails will pair up for a co-headlining tour with Soundgarden. I’ve copied much of the press release for you to get the best and most correct information but I will share some thoughts and more at the close. Here’s the poster.

Artist: Nine Inch Nails Release: With Teeth Label: Interscope Records Date: May 5. 2005 Genre: Industrial Rating: 7.5
On With Teeth Trent Reznor drops most of the Sturm und Drang trappings of his previous forays through the industrial charnel house. By peering out from behind the Halloween mask, Trent comes to the realization that unadorned exploration of the human psyche is more horrifying than all the creaking doors, banging pots and video Gran Guignol that has come to be synonymous with Nine Inch Nails.
That most of With Teeth’s songs are more immediately accessible then much of NIN’s output does not mean they are any less tortured. In fact stripping away most of the aural mis en scene that has cluttered the NIN sonic landscape (as well as the instrumental passages of the last studio album, 1999’s The Fragile), allows a closer, scarier, look at these songs’ creator. So this time NIN bites NOT with the Hollywood makeup dentures of the latest teen scream film but the gnawing insecurities and psychoses with which everyday people eat themselves alive.
