Nine Inch Nails Close Out Budweiser Made In America Festival !


(PCM) While it was certainly no easy feat to top Beyonce’s phenomenal headlining performance on Day One of the Budweiser Made In America Festival. Nine Inch Nails did a mighty fine job in their own right to close out the 2-day Philadelphia festival.

It was especially great to see Trent Reznor and the rest of the band out and performing live behind their absolutely stellar new album “Hesitation Marks”!

The band played a solid set that ran the span of their career over the years with stand-outs being the new single “Came Back Haunted” and fan favorites “Terrible Lie”, “Closer”, “Wish” and of course closing the set with “Hurt”.

Nine Inch Nails Posed For A Major Comeback With “Hesitation Marks”

Nine-Inch-Nails1(PCM) This year is shaping up to be a pretty good year for Nine Inch Nails. The band has been receiving rave reviews following their recent performances at both Lollapalooza and Outside Lands and now with their upcoming new album “Hesitation Marks” due out on September 3rd, be prepared to throw out any pre-conceived notions about this band right out the window!

The heart of Nine Inch Nails and their music comes from founder and vocalist Trent Reznor’s fearless approach to creating songs and soundscapes that take the listener on a true musical journey. It is absolutely refreshing to see an artist that is not afraid to take chances, something so few band’s seem to be doing these days.

The new album, which is currently streaming for free via iTunes, prior to its’ release gives fans their only chance to hear the full album prior to the September 3rd release date. It was fantastic to be able to check out the album and without a doubt it is sure to earn its’ place as one of the best of the band’s extensive career.

The lead single “Came Back Haunted” is tearing it’s way up the radio charts and it will surely be follow-up up by additional singles such as “Copy Of A” and “Everything” which in their own right are creating a lot of buzz. This album showcases the more contemplative side of the band, but it is still not without it’s moments of raw aggression and Trent’s poetic and somewhat haunting vocals.

Nine Inch Nails will play an intimate show for fans at the legendary Troubadour club in Los Angeles on September 3, coinciding with the release of Hesitation Marks. “Tension 2013,” the band’s North American fall arena tour, will kick off on September 28.


We are gearing up to catch Nine Inch Nails at both the Budweiser Made In America Festival in Philadelphia, PA on 9/1 and Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans from 11/1 -11/3, so definitely be sure to stay tuned to PCM for our upcoming live recaps and photos from the shows.

Sting And Nine Inch Nails Ready New Album Releases And Other Music News!

  • Sting3Cherrytree/Interscope/A&M Records is pleased to announce a new album of original material from Sting, entitled The Last Ship, scheduled for release on September 24, 2013. The album is inspired by Sting’s forthcoming play of the same name and explores the central themes of homecoming and self-discovery, drawing upon his memories of growing up in the shadow of the Swan Hunters Shipyard in Wallsend. His personal reminiscences illuminate universal truths – the complexity of relationships, the passage of time and the importance of family and community – to form an affecting, complex parable for our modern times. The play, in which Sting has been creatively immersed for nearly three years, debuts on Broadway in 2014 and is a collaboration with Tony Award winners Joe Mantello (director; Wicked, Other Desert Cities), John Logan (writer; Red, Skyfall)) and Brian Yorkey (writer; Next to Normal). The Last Ship tells the story of the demise of the shipbuilding industry in 1980s Newcastle which had, for so long, shaped and overshadowed the city, its development, and its community.
