Two new NIN songs in Fuji
Over the weekend, Nine Inch Nails performed in Japan and the Fuji Rock Festival where they played several new tunes and showed off what their stage show is going to be like here in the states … and it’s no wonder the floor tickets were $99, ‘cuz this show is gonna be worth it. The band played the new tune “Copy Of A” from the forthcoming album Hesitation Marks, which hits stores September 3rd. Watch video at this link or below:
They also rocked out to the new tune “Find My Way.” Watch that video at this link or below:
While performing at Fuji Rock, the band displayed an intense stage show with a ton of moving pieces and interactive lights that is sure to stun even the passive observer. NIN will be in Chicago this Friday for Lollapalooza and then down in St. Louis October 1st.
Draiman whips Waters
It’s seems more apparent that David Draiman doesn’t like anyone that isn’t David Draiman. That may be a bit far, but the Disturbed/Device front man has blasted a rock icon for something that may seem a bit trivial to most of us. In a post, Draiman took Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters to task. Why? Because Waters used the Star of David on an inflatable pig during a live show. Draiman, a half Israeli Jews, wrote a sternly worded letter (thankfully not in all caps like he’s known to do) demanding Waters apologize for denigrating the Jewish religion. Waters has yet to respond.
It's a sledgehammer, dog
Speaking of responses, Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin is talking about his recent arrest on vandalism charges. The singer was caught by TMZ leaving the police station last week where they asked him why he’d use a buzzsaw on his neighbor’s porch. He replied “It’s called a sledgehammer, dog.” Scantlin reportedly used a sledgehammer and a buzzsaw to vandalize his neighbor’s porch.
