Ahead of tomorrow's (June 6) premiere of new tune "Came Back Haunted," Nine Inch Nails have announced a title and release date for their upcoming, apparently "fucking great" album. Titled Hesitation Marks, it hits stores September 3 through Columbia Records.
UPDATE: In Canada, the album will be arriving via Universal Music Canada.
The big reveal was made by the band earlier tonight over Twitter. Not too many details exist beyond that, but the act also posted an image onto Instagram along with the message "(rm, 2013)." Seemingly, the four panels it displays were whipped up by visual designer Russell Mills, who first worked with Nine Inch Nails on 1994's The Downward Spiral, and fans have been speculating this could be part of the LP's artwork. This has not yet been confirmed by Nine Inch Nails.
While a tracklisting has yet to pop up, it had been previously reported that Reznor was working "non-stop" on the LP with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder over the last while. The live lineup, meanwhile, recently re-acquired longtime collaborator Robin Finck. You can see the band's tour schedule down below.
As for "Came Back Haunted," the song is set to debut on KROQ tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. EDT/11:30 a.m. PDT. The station's program director Lisa Worden said that the track "harkens back to early Nine Inch Nails," adding that "it's not the experimental material Trent's done in the last five years."
UPDATE: Well, it looks like we've got "Came Back Haunted" a little earlier than expected. Seattle's 107.7 The End radio station premiered the song tonight, and you can currently stream the track below.
UPDATE 2: Following the sudden album announcement and track reveal, NIN have rolled out a full North American tour that has them playing all over Canada. See the updated schedule below.
