Reports of new music from industrial-rock band Nine Inch Nails were confirmed in May of this year, promising a new record out by the end of 2013. Now we know that the album, called Hesitation Marks, will officially be released on September 3rd. If that seems like a long ways away for you, don’t worry—Nine Inch Nails have been active as of late and are giving fans a lot to look forward to in the meantime.
Most recently, the band has released the music video for their new song, “Came Back Haunted”, directed by none other than David Lynch. Lynch’s unnerving and creepy aesthetic paired with NIN’s dark, heavy sound is a perfect marriage. The video is just over four minutes of tense, jarring imagery including strange creatures and other scary touches. And, of course, it’s important to note that the intensity of the flashing lights/images in this video is enough to warrant the inclusion of a warning for those with photosensitive epilepsy, as the music video has been identified as a possible trigger. It’s not an easy watch but it is still decidedly cool and something for fans to indulge in while they await the forthcoming album. Just don’t watch it too many times, because that can’t be good for your eyes.
While the music video is the most recent release from NIN, you can also catch them on tour this summer. Starting later this month, the band will embark on a major tour including shows in South Korea, Japan, and all over Europe. After that, they will continue this massive tour across America, which, yes, does include a stop in Boston. The North American tour also includes Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Explosions in the Sky, bands that promise to deliver killer performances.
The video for “Came Back Haunted” is available on Nine Inch Nail’s website.
