Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor says the band plans to play some new tunes on the road
Nine Inch Nails fans waiting to hear new music from Trent Reznor and company will get some soon. According to frontman Trent Reznor, the band plans to pull out some new tunes on their upcoming tour, even if it’s just a few.
Reznor told NME that the band plans to pull out “a couple of tracks” during their trek that were originally “intended to go on a greatest hits record.” Reznor also explained that he penned the songs with King Crimson member Adrian Belew, who is now part of the Nine Inch Nails roster.
In addition to experiencing some new music from the band, Reznor says that their upcoming concerts will feature a fair amount of musical experimentation. ”
Aside from the new music, Reznor says the band will be putting some experimental touches on the classics. “The intention is to reconstruct songs based on this new instrumentation and only play songs we as a band feel good about,” he said. “With Nine Inch Nails last time, I felt that I’d explored that kind of bludgeoning rock thing in a lot of different ways, like I’d done everything I could do with that format.”
At the moment, Nine Inch Nails’ upcoming trek includes several overseas festivals, such as Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival, Germany’s Rock’n’Heim Festival and South Korea’s Ansan Valley Festival. The guys are anticipated to announce more tour dates in the coming weeks.
