Brief footage of HTDA's visual effects from Moment Factory

Watch a short highlight video created by Moment Factory, showcasing the visual effects from this year's How To Destroy Angels tour. HTDA's production and visual effects crew (Trent Reznor, Rob Sheridan, Roy Bennett, and Moment Factory) is the same team behind the Lights in the Sky tour. They are currently working on the design for the upcoming festival and arena dates for Nine Inch Nails, and two festival dates for HTDA. Very exciting!

David Lynch is directing a video for Came Back Haunted

This news comes from Pitchfork minutes after Trent Reznor posted a photo to Twitter captioned simply "tr;dl" (You don't know how hard it was to type that correctly). Not much more to say until the video comes out!

Came Back Haunted promo CDs appearing on eBay

Came Back Haunted promo cdIt looks like promotional CDs for the debut single from Hestitation Marks have been sent out to radio stations, or something (didn't radio stations already debut this track?)

Dear Columbia, send me promo material - even though I've already heard the song, I won't put what you give me up on eBay. Yup, already one of the new promo CDs sold for $172.49, with a second currently active listing already up to $55 as of this posting.

It looks like NIN Catalog is going to have to add a new square to their front page sooner than later.

Radio stations giving away tickets to "secret NIN show"

Over on Echoing the Sound, heavenly_bearded posted a link to his local radio station, which is doing a giveaway of airfare, a hotel stay, and a pair of tickets to a "secret Nine Inch Nails show." It's one of those listen and then call to qualify types of things, and they're probably doing it at a US radio station near you as well.

Posted to LiveNation's Facebook page is the following graphic is a butchering modification of the graphics being used in ads for the new NIN tour. This isn't a proper tour poster, but you'll probably see this image showing up around you in the next few days online and in print.

The version on Live Nation's page removed some text (and with it, some visual balance).

Richard Patrick discusses Trent Reznor

Over at Loudwire you can watch a short interview with Richard Patrick (Filter/NIN live fame) he discusses their current relationship and a possible NIN/Filter tour.

Pre-order Hesitation Marks

Hesitation MarksUPDATE:
The official preorder is up, with vinyl, CDs, tshirts, and 1200x1200 resolution art. Thanks to manofatom for the heads up. Go!

As a musician there are many benefits to working with a record label, but one of the downsides is that you have to turn over some elements of control. Along those lines, Apple has perhaps jumped the gun and made hesitation marks available for pre-order - both as a standard album ($11.99) and a Deluxe Version ($14.99). The album tentatively has 14 tracks, and the currently associated artwork, pictured to the right, also appears to be by Russell Mills.
