New Nine Inch Nails line-up

2013-05-17 by Raul Stanciu STAFF | 26 Comments
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 and 2009, respectively).

This is what Trent Reznor commented regarding Finck and the new line-up: "I am proud to announce that the tour lineup now includes the incredible Robin Finck. The addition of Robin to the mix of players I've assembled makes this band incredibly powerful and versatile. We are deep in the rehearsal process and it feels exciting and great to be back at this. Lots of information, surprises and sweat headed your way. Stay tuned!"

Lights In the Sky was still hands down one of the best shows i've ever seen.

Don't know if I'd notice any band member's absence other than Trent's, so pretty apathetic about this.

Just finishing up Fragile when I saw this. At the very least, Fink can't hurt the band.

You know nothing about the Nails, do you? In fact, most of the comments in this thread reveal ignorance. Having Finck back in the fold will make a huge difference live. The guy is a unique character and in my mind, just as important to the Nails live as Reznor.

I never even thought of Nine Inch Nails having a full band besides Trent. Faceless musicians, sadly.

Watch Closure or any of their dvd live shows and you will see why I admire Finck's contributions to the Reznor show. If you get the chance to see them live, don't turn it down.

Insomniac, his birthday is on May 17 according to wiki. Would've been cool if his birthday was 7 cause that's mine. Any guesses when that new NIN album might come out?

Finck is an amazing player, especially live and has a great stage presence. Great move, even if he's just playing bass.
