After taking a couple of months off, Nine Inch Nails have already begun rehearsing for their 2014 tour, which starts next week in Japan, then heads down to Australia. Recently, NIN mastermind Trent Reznor sat down with New Zealand’s 3 News to discuss the upcoming shows, the soundtrack to David Fincher’s Gone Girl, the ever-looming remaster of The Fragile, and, of course, what the hell happened at the Grammys last month.
There’s a link for the full interview in both audio and transcript formats below, but here’s a basic summary: NIN are touring as a “more aggressive and electronic” 4-piece for the time being (Reznor, Robin Finck, Ilan Rubin & Alessandro Cortini), possibly adding material from Year Zero and The Fragile to setlists; that latter album’s reissue has gotten a lot of work done on it, but “40-or-so demos” were recently discovered, so who knows how long it’ll take to arrange them into a cohesive package; and Reznor & Homme decided to take their chances with the Grammy performance, and didn’t even know they were cut off until they got off stage.
