Hells YES! One of the best experimental bands of the '90s is finally returning to the music scene in 2013!!

Trent Reznor has been a busy man since the various members of Nine Inch Nails went their separate ways four years ago; he's won Oscars, is just about to release an album with his wife…

But NOW we hear NIN is reforming, and Trent and his peeps will begin touring in the summer/fall!!

Trent said in a statement:

"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."

Whoop whoop!!

This new NIN formation sounds KILLER! Eric Avery of Jane's Addiction, Adrian Belew of King Crimson, and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv?!

NICE.

We are SO excited to hear this inevitably unique concoction of sound, led by Mr. Trent!

NOTE FROM TRENT:

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.

    Kind of disappointing news. I was hoping the announcement would be about NEW NIN material.

    another marketing gimmick. he can't afford his gold digging wife and his crappy band HTDA, so he has come back crawling to NIN. his retirement didn't even last 4 years. hahahaha I find this loser so funny. WHO CARES?!

    I am so excited NIN is returning!! I am a huge NIN fan and have to comment and make corrections to this article. NIN is Trent Reznor! He invites people to play on some songs, but he does the whole thing by himself. When he tours, he hires musicians to play along with him because he can't do it all on stage by himself. Many people don't realize how much talent this man possesses. He has an amazing voice live, it is almost exactly like the cd version. Amazing!! I wasn't a big NIN fan until I seen him live after Hurricane Katrina hit and Voodoo Festival was moved to Memphis. He blew me away and I have been a die hard NINer since. So, anyway my point is that the band did not split up 4 years ago. Trent decided to take a much needed break from touring. He didn't fire anyone or split up, since he is the only person that makes up NIN. If you know anything about NIN, that is an obvious factor considering he rarely has the same people perform live with him from one tour to the next. He never said he was retiring, just taking a break because he was completely sick of touring for years back to back and was ready to try other avenues of music, movies, etc. that he had not had enough time to work on. So, he has done music scores for movies, Call of Duty Black Ops II theme song, worked with a few other musicians on projects, had a couple of kids, and now he is back to his original baby!!!! Can't wait!!!!!!
