Trent Reznor’s resurrected Nine Inch Nails tonight announced that it will release a brand-new album titled Hesitation Marks on Sept. 3 — nearly four years to the day after Reznor “retired” the live incarnation of that band with an epic, guest-filled concert at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theatre.
For this week’s “120 Minutes” Rewind, we flash back to the episode that aired on Christmas 1989 for this appearance by a pre-superstardom Trent Reznor, who helps host Dave Kendall trim the “120 Minutes” Christmas tree and then discusses plans for Nine Inch Nails’ upcoming single “Head Like a Hole.”
Trent Reznor’s reunited Nine Inch Nails will be filling festival bills around the world later this summer, but Coachella snagged what may end up being a rare appearance by his new band, How to Destroy Angels, which brought an impressive visual component to its set late Friday night.
We’ve already speculated as to why there’s a good chance we’ll see The Cure and New Order on the bill of August’s Lollapalooza, and now comes a photo of what’s purported to be a poster featuring the Chicago festival’s yet-to-be-announced lineup, headlined by Robert Smith and Co.
Three years ago, we reported on plans to release a fan-produced concert film documenting Nine Inch Nails’ purportedly final concert: a monster 3.5-hour, 37-song set performed Sept. 10, 2009, at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theatre. Now, with Trent Reznor having just announced plans to reunite NIN, the film is here.
Four years since retiring the live incarnation of Nine Inch Nails, frontman Trent Reznor this morning announced he is resurrecting the band with a new lineup that includes King Crimson guitar whiz Adrian Belew and former Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery, and will mount a U.S. arena tour this fall and dates worldwide in 2014.
This is a particularly hilarious bit of footage that’s just surfaced: Check out a pony-tailed Trent Reznor leading Nine Inch Nails (and dancing like a madman) through a lip-synched performance of debut single ‘Down In It’ on the wonderfully dated ‘Dance Party USA.’

This has been online for a couple years now, but it didn’t come to our attention until this week: It’s a clip of future Oscar winner Trent Reznor in one of his mid-’80s, pre-Nine Inch Nails bands performing a fairly faithful cover of the Billy Idol hit ‘Eyes Without a Face.’
Twenty years ago today, the Perry Farrell-spawned Lollapalooza festival — which, in retrospect, joins Nevermind as perhaps the best historical encapsulation of ‘the year punk broke’ — made its debut in the sun-baked Arizona desert with performances by Nine Inch Nails, Living Colour, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Jane’s Addiction.
It’s Trent Reznor’s birthday today — he’s turning 46 — and to mark the occasion, we offer up this 11-song performance by Nine Inch Nails captured on grainy VHS during the young band’s December 1989 tour in support of ‘Pretty Hate Machine.’
