While Reznor never said Nine Inch Nails was over, he did announce that he would not be touring under the name after 2009. He hasn't released new music under the name since. But now it seems like he's ready to get back to the act that made him famous. He announced on his website yesterday that he is reforming Nine Inch Nails with an almost entirely new line up. The band will now include bassist Eric Avery, guitarist Adrian Belew, keyboardist Alessandro Cortini, who previously worked with NIN, keyboardist John Eustis, and drummer Ilan Rubin, who has also worked with the band before. Reznor also states that the band will being touring this year with the first shows beginning in summer, followed by an arena tour this fall.
Late last year, Reznor hinted that NIN were ready to start making new music again by saying that there was new material in the works. Hopefully, we'll get to hear some it by the end of this year. Meanwhile, Reznor has been working on his side project How To Destroy Angels, which features his wife Mariqueen Maandig, Rob Sheridan, and Atticus Ross. Their debut album will drop March 15.
