If How to Destroy Angels’ 2013 tour plans seemed short, the subsequent news of Nine Inch Nails reformation for the road should have provided some serious consolation. Especially considering the new additions to the live band: Jane’s Addiction’s Eric Avery, King Crimson’s Adrian Belew, and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv. Fans of all things Trent Reznor will have plenty of lovely spirals to dive into. And now we know a couple of NIN dates to look forward to.
Reznor’s most famous band will be among those (Björk included) to play Japan’s 17th annual Fuji Rock Festival, which runs July 26 through 28. As Consequence of Sound reports, NIN will also perform at Rock ‘n’ Heim 2013, another three-day event that kicks off on August 16 at the Hockenheimring race track in southwestern Germany (where they’ll be joined by System of a Down, Tenacious D, Deftones, and other heavy-hitters).
As previously reported, a U.S. arena tour is planned for the fall with additional worldwide dates set to stretch into 2014, although no specific details have been announced. Also as noted, Nine Inch Nails are planning to release a greatest hits compilation next year that Reznor says will include two brand new songs. The band’s last set of new material was 2008’s The Slip, a top-notch collection of “primo death funk.” HTDA are at Coachella on April 12 and 19.
