Nine Inch Nails Announce Tour

Nine Inch Nails Announce Tour
Trent Reznor's most recent cryptic posting on the NIN website is sure to drive at least as many rabid goths into a frenzy as the surprise release of Ghosts I-IV did. The brief posting revealed NIN's first batch of confirmed tour dates for this summer, five of which are in Canada.

In addition to being part of the roster for the unbelievably awesome Pemberton Festival, taking place on July 25 in British Columbia, NIN will be visiting Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto around the end of July and beginning of August with a "reformed" touring band. Details are forthcoming on who will comprise that reformed line-up, but Rolling Stone speculates previous players Twiggy Ramirez (now reunited with Marilyn Manson), drummer Josh Freese of the Vandals, keyboardist Alessandro Cortini, and Aaron North of the Icarus Line could be involved.

Of course, Mr. Reznor likes his surprises, so let's wait to see what details emerge in his next posting. Maybe Robin Finck will end up missing out on his free Dr. Pepper?
