The band announced dates for its "How to Destroy Angels" tour on Feb. 22, and the tour will kick-off next month on April 4, featuring a couple songs from the band's forthcoming album.
Reznor splits his creative time between his two bands, composing movie scores for soundtracks and song writing. In his interview with NWE, Reznor discussed the possibility of fans hearing new material during the band's concert shows. "There isn't any new material to play except for a couple of tracks," Reznor said.
The band's forthcoming album release combining a compilation of the band's greatest hits plus entirely new music. The album is slated for release in 2014, pushed back from a 2013 release date.
Reznor eluded to what NIN fans can expect to hear during the band's tour performances. "The intention is to reconstruct songs based on this new instrumentation and only play songs we as a band feel good about," Reznor said.
Reznor continued, "With Nine Inch Nails last time, I felt that I'd explored that kind of bludgeoning rock thing in a lot of different ways, like I'd done everything I could do with that format."
