The new Nine Inch Nails lineup - Trent Reznor, Alessandro Cortini, Joshua Eustis, Robin Finck, and Ilan Rubin - debuted their live show on July 26th when they headlined the Fuji Rock Festival in Naeba, Japan. The show marked Nine Inch Nails' first live performance in nearly four years. They premiered three new songs from 'Hesitation Marks': 'Copy Of A' and 'Find My Way' as well as first single 'Came Back Haunted'.
The new studio album, which Trent Reznor recorded with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder over the course of the past year, marks the first new music from Nine Inch Nails in five years and is their first release on Polydor Records.
Nine Inch Nails is considered a pioneer in the industrial music movement and has been highly influential in the evolution of electronic music. Its recordings - which include the RIAA Platinum-certified Pretty Hate Machine (1989), Broken (1992), The Downward Spiral (1994) and With Teeth (2005) - have revolutionized detailed digital production. The band has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, released a remarkable series of singles, including the No. 1 Modern Rock radio hits "The Hand That Feeds," "Only," "Every Day Is Exactly the Same" and "Survivalism," and received two GRAMMY® awards. Building on Nine Inch Nails' long history of soundtrack work, Reznor, together with Atticus Ross, scored the David Fincher films The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, winning an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a GRAMMY in the process.
