The return of Nine Inch Nails continues. In an NME interview, Trent Reznor revealed that the band’s upcoming tour dates may contain performances of new material. Reznor stated that he’s worked on “a couple of tracks” with King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew that are intended to go on NIN’s in-the-works greatest hits album, which has been pushed back to 2014. He also revealed that there’s no new NIN album planned for the time being.
The band will perform at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals in England, in addition to their previously announced international tour dates.
In the interview, Reznor talked about the intent behind the tour:
“The intention is to reconstruct songs based on this new instrumentation and only play songs we as a band feel good about. With Nine Inch Nails last time, I felt that I’d explored that kind of bludgeoning rock thing in a lot of different ways, like I’d done everything I could do with that format.”
As previously reported, the new NIN lineup will include Reznor, Belew, Eric Avery of Jane’s Addiction, and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv, as well as previous NIN collaborators Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin.
