Two days ago, Eric Avery announced his desire to quit from the current Nine Inch Nails line-up. He admitted it was a tough decision, but he felt overwhelmed by the number of dates continuously growing. He commented: "I really want to focus on my musical life here in L.A., on film work in particular. As the tour dates kept growing… I just got overwhelmed. I just got home from a year of heavy travel with Garbage, the idea of leaving town for another year and a half, and with all the intensity that nails demands… fortunately my friend Trent understands all this and appreciated my pulling the plug now instead of deep into 2013 and 14. Go get 'em gentlemen."
Now, Trent Reznor announced the inclusion of Robin Finck to the line-up. Finck is the only collaborator who joined Nine Inch Nails for four major tours so far (Self Destruct/Further Down The Spiral in 1994-1995, Fragile 1.0/2.0 in 1999-2000 and most recently Lights In The Sky and Wave Goodbye tours in 2008 a ...more

Most of us weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouth but if life dealt you all the wrong cards, you still have to play. The song’s intent is to inspire; if you play that hand right you might just come out on top anyway.”
