Nine Inch Nails Make a Comeback

Four years after they went on hiatus, Trent Reznor has announced that his band, The Nine Inch Nails, is ready to get back into making music. The lead singer, producer and songwriter, also the only official member of the band, said the band’s 8th album, ‘Hesitation Marks’, is due for release in September of this year. A single, ‘Came Back Haunted’, is already available on iTunes. The album will be the band’s major label release since 2007’s ‘Year Zero’. The title of the album comes from small wounds inflicted during self-harm.


Trent first let on about a possible album when he posted this on the band’s official site,, on May 28th :


I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!


Nine Inch Nails has had quite a successful run since Trent formed the band in 1988. They have sold over 30 million albums worldwide, and have won 2 Grammys out of 12 nominations (for ‘Wish’ and ‘Happiness in Slavery’). The early 90s were the most successful time for the band, and the later years were marked by recording label conflicts which lead to their hiatus. Trent is hoping this comeback marks a new chapter for the industrial rock project. Check out their latest single, and let us know what you think.
