NINE INCH NAILS has just completed a three-week tour of South America and Mexico and is preparing to resume its North American trek on October 23 in San Antonio. Mainman Trent Reznor writes on the band's web site, "Josh Freese [NIN's current drummer] fans, be sure to check out a show on the upcoming North American leg of the tour, as sadly they will be the last ones he's playing with us. He informed me he's leaving the tour at the end of this year. Yes, we are still dear friends. No, I'm not sure what we are going to do."
NINE INCH NAILS recently announced plans to release its own branded version of the iPhone music game TapTap Revenge. The special edition of the popular game includes 16 songs from the band's most recent albums, "The Slip" and the all-instrumental "Ghosts I - IV". Some of the tracks have been re-edited or remixed specifically for the game. A statement from developer Tapulous added that this edition of the game will have a "special NIN look and feel."
Trent Reznor recently asked fans to take an online survey, saying, "As we've moved from the familiar world of record labels and BS into the unknown world of doing everything yourself, we've realized it would benefit us and our ability to interact with you if we knew more about what you want, what you like, what you look like naked, etc."
Reznor offered a video download of a live performance to everyone who completed the questionnaire, hinting at other prizes as well.
