COLUMBIA RECORDS has announced the signing of NINE INCH NAILS with a new album expected later this year. It will be the first release in five years for NINE INCH NAILS -- led by TRENT REZNOR -- considered a pioneer in the industrial music movement and has been highly influential in the evolution of electronic music. The band has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, released a remarkable series of singles, including #1 Alternative songs "The Hand That Feeds," "Only," "Every Day Is Exactly The Same" and "Survivalism," and received two GRAMMY Awards.
"I've been less than honest about what I've really been up to lately," said TRENT REZNOR. "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 f*cking 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!"
"We are thrilled at COLUMBIA to work with a true renaissance artist like TRENT REZNOR on the return of NINE INCH NAILS and an exciting new chapter of innovative music from them,” commented ROB STRINGER, Chairman of COLUMBIA RECORDS.
The band is performing at a number of festivals this summer, including LOLLAPALOOZA, OUTSIDE LANDS, LEEDS, READING, MADE IN AMERICA, and the VOODOO FESTIVAL. The new NINE INCH NAILS lineup – ALESSANDRO CORTINI, JOSH EUSTIS, ROBIN FINCK, TRENT REZNOR, and ILAN RUBIN -- will debut on JULY 26th at the FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL in JAPAN. The show will mark NIN's first live performance in nearly four years.
