Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls
recently spoke to Billboard.com about the upcoming tour with NIN
She said that the "first inkling we got that something might happen was when Trent called to get on the guest list for our last show in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, he was ill and couldn't make it."
She went on to say that "It's easy to like this band. Our music is aggressive but not confrontational. I think there's a lot of common threads running through [both bands]."
Thanks go to Swammerhead!
