NINE INCH NAILS' new album, "Hesitation Marks", is scheduled for release on September 3. The follow-up to 2008's "The Slip" will contain 14 tracks, including first single "Came Back Haunted", the video for which is being helmed by acclaimed filmmaker David Lynch.
According to RollingStone.com, "Hesitation Marks" will feature guest appearances by a number of musicians, including guitarist Lindsey Buckingham of FLEETWOOD MAC; bassist Pino Pallidino, who is currently a touring member of THE WHO; and KING CRIMSON's Adrien Belew, who recently left NINE INCH NAILS just a few weeks after he was announced as a new member of the Trent Reznor-led group.
Trent Reznor has tapped David Lynch to direct NINE INCH NAILS' video for the band's new single, "Came Back Haunted". Earlier today, Reznora photo of the duo on Twitter with a caption of their initials ("tr;dl").
"Came Back Haunted" will appear on NINE INCH NAILS' new album,"Hesitation Marks", which is scheduled for release on September 3.
Reznor, who produced the soundtrack to Lynch's 1997 film "Lost Highway", told Rolling Stone magazine at the time: "I'm a huge David Lynch fan — we used to hold up NINE INCH NAILS shows just so we could watch the latest 'Twin Peaks'. So we set up a weekend for him to come to my place in New Orleans. At first, it was like the most high-pressure situation ever. It was literally one minute, 'Hi, I'm David Lynch,' and he's cooler than I even imagined he would be. Three minutes later, he's saying: 'Well, let's go in the studio and get started.'"
Six years after his NINE INCH NAILS contract with Interscope Recordsexpired and he became an independent artist, Reznor has signed a new deal for NINE INCH NAILS with Columbia Records, marking NIN's return to the major label industry. Reznor's other act, HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS, made a deal with Columbia last year, so extending the partnership to NINE INCH NAILS doesn't seem like much of a stretch.
Guitarist Adrian Belew has announced his departure from the new touring lineup of Trent Reznor's NINE INCH NAILS.
Belew wrote on Facebook: "Hey, folks, before this goes too far, let me say this: I greatly respect [NINE INCH NAILS mainman] Trent [Reznor] and the music he makes. No one is at fault. We both agreed it just was not working. I'm sorry to disappoint anyone. That really hurts. But NIN will do an amazing show and I am back where I belong: creating FLUX."
Bassist Eric Avery quit NINE INCH NAILS last month, writing onFacebook that he was "overwhelmed" at the thought of going out again with NIN after spending the last year on tour with GARBAGE.
