When Death Grips announced their dissolution a couple of weeks ago they left a big vacancy at the bottom of the bill of Nine Inch Nails upcoming tour with Soundgarden. At the time Trent Reznor tweeted that shouldn’t have “ever thought those dudes could keep it together,” but now he’s replaced the noise-rap crew with a trio of equally compelling acts. Brooklyn experimentalist Oneohtrix Point Never will handle the first leg of the tour, the New Jersey noiseniks in the Dillinger Escape Plan will handle the second, and the Los Angeles-based goth-pop act Cold Cave will finish out the trek.
Oneohtrix Point Never, for his part, will be debuting a new live set composed of “30 minutes of customized hard rock cyberdrone” written specifically for the tour. He also released a new logo, which you can see below, that happens to look strikingly similar to a different hard rock act‘s famous insignia.
