Nine Inch Nails have, through their new recording deal with Columbia Records, been putting tohether a new album. Titled Hesitation Marks they cut one new single and the entire album is due for release 3 Sept this year.
Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails has confirmed the fall release and their first new music in five years and the bands eighth album is already available for pre-order from iTunes from Thursday. Reznor has also confirned that there is a full out touring assault also due to start in the fall.
Reznor has never been afraid to work the tour circuit and they plan to hit the road in with all engines running and he has promised a “full-on” production this time around for his “Nine Inch Nails: Tension 2013” arena tour.
The tour will be promoted by Live Nation, which will start Sept 28 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Mn and will wind down Nov. 25 at the Calgary Scotiabank Saddledome.
Rezner released a statement that said, “Tension picks up where ‘Lights in the Sky’ left off. This is the full-on NIN live experience realized as we never could before.”
The late May press release announced the recording deal with Columbia and gave his fans an update on the quality of the new album. It was obvious that Reznor wasn’t messing around, he got straight to the point as he said, “For the last year I’ve been secretly working nonstop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record. which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great.”
NIN has released the first track of the new album as their latest single and it’s called Come Back Haunted. The song is already available for purchase from iTunes and the song, which you can listen to below, was co-produced by frontman Trent Reznor along with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder, the disc will serve as the Nine Inch Nails follow-up to 2008’s The Slip.
Reznor wrote on Tumblr in May that he’d been “less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately” and revealed that he’d finished a Nine Inch Nails album, which he called “the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again.”
