Reznor on new album
The rage is quieter … that’s what Trent Reznor is saying about the new Nine Inch Nails album Hesitation Marks. In an interview with The Guardian, Reznor says he was thinking about where he was when he was making the epic 1994 masterpiece The Downward Spiral and where he is now. Back then he’d put every bit of emotion on the line and that ultimately led to abusive tendencies. Now he says the depression and feeling of not-fitting-in is still there, but he’s a totally different person and the rage is a bit quieter. Nine Inch Nails performed at Outside Lands festival in San Francisco over the weekend where they performed a new tune from the forthcoming album. They’ve been touring the festival circuit with their amazing stage show. They’ll headline an arena tour soon with a stop in St. Louis October 1st. Hesitation Marks drops in stores September 3rd.
His name is Cory Collins
Who didn’t see this coming? Sadly, the world is one less juggalo after a 24-year-old was found dead at a campground in Cave-in-Rock, Illinois. That’s were the Insane Clown Posse was having their annual “Gathering” Festival. Authorities say Cory Collins of Harrisburg died Friday. Toxicology tests are pending. Back in 2011, one attendee of The Gathering drowned while trying to swim in the Ohio River. But, all-in-all, it’s safe to say that thousands of other juggalos partied somewhat safely over the weekend. So, if you see a wicked clown today, give him a big hug and let him know you’re glad he survived the annual Gathering.
Kid Rock's beer
American Badass Beer is now back in stores after a year on hiatus … That’s the beer Kid Rock formulated and began selling in 2009. The brewer in the Lansing, Michigan, area stopped making the beer for about a year after they ran into financial troubles, but now the beer is making a comeback and will be available in Detroit area bars and restaurants. The brew will also be available on tap at some Kid Rock shows in the Detroit area.
