On Hesitation Marks
The new album from Nine Inch Nails is to fulfill an obligation to Interscope for a future best of compilation, according to front man Trent Reznor in a very revealing article from Spin magazine. A feature article in the coming issue of the culture mag delves into the weathered, yet refreshed Reznor as he prepares for next week's album release and he talks openly about how he was done with NIN, but that with most things in life changed. He got married had two boys with wife Mariqueen, put out How to Destroy Angels, got an Oscar and says there is still no shortage of things that piss him off. The article “Trent’s Upward Spiral” gives great detail about Reznor’s storied musical career and how he’s time and again been on the cutting edge of delivering his music to fans without compromising his integrity.
Stream Hesitation Marks
Christmas came early as Nine Inch Nails’ new album Hestiation Marks is streaming in full through iTunes! The album comes in at just over an hour long with 14 tracks. The intro is gritty and gross leading right into the tune "Copy of A". It's then quickly followed by the single "Came Back Haunted," from there, the listener is taken even deeper in a digital/acoustic disconnect. The album drops September 3rd. Trent and company will be in St. Louis October 1st.
Davis on addiction
Korn’s Jonathan Davis is being open about his issues with addiction. The front man tells Metal Hammer magazine that he’s free of drug use right now, but the weight of addiction still hangs off his shoulders. He says that there was a point where he wasn’t writing or even listening to any music and was essentially just a pool of nothing. Music couldn’t even help him deal with the struggles. Now he’s sober, and the band is back at it with original guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, who also is very open about his past drug addiction problems. The new album Paradigm Shift drops October 8th.
