Nine Inch Nails
Last summer, with Trent Reznor fully engaged by How to Destroy Angels – his project with wife Mariqueen Maandig, Rob Sheridan and Atticus Ross – there was much doubt among fans that Nine Inch Nails, the project that first brought him fame, would ever perform again. But this past February, with one blog post, that all changed: "Nine Inch Nails are touring this year," the multi-instrumentalist wrote on his website. NIN's Lollapalooza gig is one of the industrial-rock outfit's first performances in four years (last week they played Japan's Fuji Rock Festival, where they unveiled the new track "Find My Way"). It's followed by a brand new album, Hesitation Marks (due on September 3rd), which Reznor recently revealed will feature an all-star cast of collaborators, including guitarist Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac.
