Nine Inch Nails To Tour This Year With Revamped Lineup

Nine Inch Nails will be touring this year with an extensively overhauled new lineup that includes Adrian Belew (of King Crimson, etc. fame), ex-Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery and Telefon Tel Aviv‘s Josh Eustis along with mainstays Ilan Rubin and Alessandro Cortini. The bands mastermind Trent Reznor said in a new statement:

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.

    Wow, Adrian Belew? Sign me up.

    Late addition to Rock on the Range plzkthx.

    Fuck yes! King Crimson and NIN members together sounds brilliant.

  • jampola

    In hindsight, pretty sure Ilan Rubin is thinking he made the best decision regarding ditching Lost Prophets for Nine Inch Nails.

    Back on topic, I am super stoked for this!

      Let the conspiracy theorists go nuts.

      Even if the guy hadn’t conspired to rape an infant this would have been a shrewd move.

      • MyDarkPassenger

        By the way, how much conspiring and forward planning does it take to rape an infant? I mean logistically it sounds down right impossible but it’s not like there’s any need for coercive tactics or something. Excuse me, I’m going to go vomit for hours.

        Plenty, parents will negotiate “allotted time alone” with their child/ren for an agreed upon amount of narcotics.

  • MyDarkPassenger

    Oh. Fuck. YES! Best band on the planet without a doubt. Loving the fact that there’s a NIN, deftones, and tool post in the top headlines. What a throwback. If only the Tool one was substantial.

    • adamonfire

      Let’s not forget the other two are Limp Bizkit and Rob Zombie. 1998 FOREVER!

      • Robot

        Wook is the Marty McFly of the 90s!

      • MyDarkPassenger

        I was hoping no one noticed the two stars of the smash hit When the 90s Refuses To Die With Dignity…


    That’s a badass line-up. Eric Avery and Adrian Belew each had a hand in plenty of classic NIN material, so this should be good.
