Nine Inch Nails fooled all of us by making it seem like they were just going to be getting the band back together and doing some festivals this summer. However they will be releasing a brand new album on September 3rd called Hesitation Marks. Here is a quote from front-man Trent Reznor
“I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop 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. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA 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!”
That new place Reznor is talking about has me less than enthused after listening to a song they have just released called, “Came Back Haunted“. While Reznor’s voice sounds incredible, the electronic, trippy and video gamey sound I am hearing behind him has me bored and uninterested. NIN has always had a great industrial metal sound but this song is just odd to me. Let me know what you think.
