Industrial music titan Nine Inch Nails has announced a full-scale return to North American arenas this fall. NIN mastermind Trent Reznor will hit the road with Adrian Belew (King Crimson) and Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv), as well as previous collaborators Robin Finck, Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin.
After spending the summer on the festival circuit in Europe (and headlining slots at American festivals Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Made in America), the band will kick off the North American leg of its tour on Sept. 28 in St. Paul, Minn., playing in St. Louis, Mo.; Boston; Brooklyn, N.Y.; Orlando, Fla.; Montrealm Quebec; Toronto, Ontario; Las Vegas, Nev.; Los Angeles, Calif.; and more before wrapping up the trek on Nov. 25 in Calgary, Canada.
Texas' Explosions in the Sky and Canandian post-rockers Godspeed You! Black Emperor will support NIN at various stops along the way.
The tour, dubbed “Tension 2013,” will be a “full-on NIN live experience realized as we never could before,” according to the band. Click here for all on-sale information. A full list of tour dates can be seen below.
As previously announced, Reznor and company have completed work on an eighth studio album.
Today, the band revealed that the album will be called “Hesitation Marks” and is due for release on Sept. 3 via Columbia Records. The cover art for the record has also been unveiled.
“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,” Reznor said. “This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, [another band] How to Destroy Angels and other projects really stimulated me creatively, and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!”
“Came Back Haunted,” the first single from the new album, is out now. Click here to listen.
