10/08/07 : big news, pt 1

Hello everyone. I've waited a LONG time to be able to make the following announcement: as of right now Nine Inch Nails is a totally free agent, free of any recording contract with any label. I have been under recording contracts for 18 years and have watched the business radically mutate from one thing to something inherently very different and it gives me great pleasure to be able to finally have a direct relationship with the audience as I see fit and appropriate.
Look for some announcements in the near future regarding 2008.
Exciting times, indeed.

10/03/07 : hello

Hello everybody. Just getting back into non-touring mode and LOTS going on. I'll be making some big announcements soon...
I'm listening to the final mastered version of Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D as I write this and I'm very pleased with it - some cool stuff on it.
Oh yeah - Radiohead. I'm sure you are all aware of what they are doing with the release of their new record (inrainbows.com). I think it's a great move and if you're into them I highly suggest you support what they're doing with this.
More soon.

09/01/07 : FUCK

One of the problems that we seem to continuously encounter across Europe is the incredible incompetence and / or greed on the part of the promoters over here. I bring (and pay for) a substantial amount of production (sound and lights) to make the show something incredible for you to witness. Time after time these motherfuckers promise certain specific things that are required in terms of the size of the stage or the power necessary to use the stuff and guess what? You got it. We show up and there's a lot of finger pointing and excuse making. This happened tonight at the truly awful Rock AM See Fuck Fest in Konstanz Germany.
FUCK YOU.
FUCK

08/20/07 : A few questions answered

Some of you have wondered how we perform "me, i'm not" and "the great destroyer" live. I have a MacBook running Ableton Live and I trigger loops, treat the loops, trigger video and play various virtual synths. Alessandro is treating various parts I send to him as well as my vocals and he manipulates the video I trigger. Aaron is playing slide guitar, electric guitar (processed by me) and also manipulates his own parts (that sounds dirty!)
All of this is live and can be extended or improvised as we see fit.

Festival sets / production:
Sometimes we can't use various aspects of our production due to staging limitations. Set lengths are NOT up to us - they are determined by the various festivals. Sometimes festivals are great for us, sometimes they aren't. Sometimes great festivals are marred by us being booked in the wrong slots. Sorry about this when it happens.
