Nine Inch Nails book arena tour to back new album
Just days after announcing an impending new album, Nine Inch Nails have unveiled a fall tour behind the September release, "Hesitation Marks."
The Trent Reznor-helmed industrial rock outfit will first take on a handful international festivals, beginning July 26 at Fuji Rock Festival in Niigata, Japan. The roadwork, the band's first live performances in nearly four years, will feature a new NIN lineup comprised of Reznor, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Robin Finck and Ilan Rubin.
The newly announced 31-city North American itinerary kicks off Sept. 28 in St. Paul, MN, and extending through a Nov. 25 performance in Calgary, Alberta.
Tickets for the outing go on sale June 14, with opening support provided by Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You! Black Emperor on various dates.
NIN will unleash "Hesitation Marks," the group's eighth studio effort, Sept. 3 via Columbia Records. The full-length set, which was recorded in secret over the last year, follows 2008's "The Slip."
The album's lead single, "Came Back Haunted," is currently available via iTunes and is streaming at the band's website.
