NINE INCH NAILS Mainman On New CD: 'This Is Not A Particularly Friendly Record'

NINE INCH NAILS mastermind Trent Reznor has revealed more information about the group's upcoming album, tentatively due in early 2007. In a December 27, 2006 blog entry on the official NIN fan club web site The Spiral, Reznor writes, "Usually when I finish a record, I have to go into battle with the people whose job is to figure out how to sell the record. The only time that didn't happen was 'With Teeth'. This time, however, I'm expecting an epic struggle. This is not a particularly friendly record and it certainly doesn't sound like anything else out there right now. Artists these days are not encouraged to experiment or take risks, and my punishment is on its way.

"Feeling physically run-down and emotionally insecure at this moment, and baffled as to why I feel the need to share this with you!"

The next NINE INCH NAILS album will follow 2005's "With Teeth", which was the group's first collection of new material in six years.

NINE INCH NAILS will chronicle the tour in support of its 2005 comeback album "With Teeth" with the DVD "Beside You in Time", due February 27 via Interscope. The main body of the project features 19 songs, two of which ("Right Where It Belongs" and "Beside You in Time") can be viewed from alternate camera angles.

Trailers from "Beside You in Time" can be viewed on the band's web site. The DVD will be available in standard form as well as in HD and Blu-Ray, although the regular edition will include audio mixes in Dolby Digital Stereo, Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1.

Reznor played the first solo show of his career on October 21 at Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit outside San Francisco, according to Reznor was backed only by a four-piece string section as he played subdued versions of NINE INCH NAILS tracks such as "Piggy", "The Fragile" and "Hurt".
