Trent Reznor Reforms Nine Inch Nails, Is Sick of Being in a Band With His Wife

He’s baaaaaaaaaaack! Well, Trent Reznor really never left us (“us” somehow being the music scene). He formed another project (How to destroy angels_) with his wife, Mariqueen Maandig and Atticus Ross. However, he has re-branded Nine Inch Nails, and now they’re going out on tour. The band will consist of Eric Avery of Jane’s Addiction, Adrian Belew of King Crimson, and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv, plus former Nine Inch Nail’ers Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin (via Pitchfork).

We even get a note from Trent handwritten in blood:

“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.

Can you say Lollapalooza?
