In a statement released by Pitchfork, Trent Reznor announced big upcoming plans for Nine Inch Nails: a return to touring in 2013 continuing through 2014.
A new Nine Inch Nails lineup will also join Reznor on the tour: Eric Avery (Jane’s Addiction), Adrian Belew (King Crimson), Josh Eustis (Telefon of Tel Aviv) and former NIN musicians Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin.
Here is the full statement:
“NOTE FROM TRENT:
Nine Inch Nails are touring this year.
I was working with Adrian Belew on some musical ideas, which led to some discussion on performing, which led to some beard-scratching, which (many steps later) led to the decision to re-think the idea of what Nine Inch Nails could be, and the idea of playing a show. Calls were made to some friends, lots of new ideas were discussed, and a show was booked – which led to another, which somehow led to a lot of shows.
The band is reinventing itself from scratch and will be comprised of Eric Avery, Adrian Belew, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Ilan Rubin, and me. The first shows will begin this summer, followed by a full-on arena tour of the US this fall, and lots of other dates worldwide to follow through 2014.
Lots of details and dates to come. See you soon.
Before this tour kicks off, Reznor is releasing a new album with How to destroy angels_, titled Welcome oblivion via Columbia Records on March 5.
