Nine Inch Nails

How is Mr. Trent Reznor keeping himself busy when he isn’t writing films scores (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network) or winning Golden Globe Awards (Best Original Score for a Motion Picture)? By working on the highly anticipated ninth studio album for a little band named Nine Inch Nails.

The band just announced a new album, new single, and a North American arena tour. Not a bad day for Nine Inch Nails fans, if you ask me. The new album, Hesitation Marks, is set for a September 3rd release but is available for pre-order now on iTunes and Nine Inch Nail’s website. The band’s new single, “Came Back Haunted,” is also available starting today on iTunes, and those who pre-order Hesitation Marks will instantly receive a download of “Came Back Haunted,” proving that the early bird gets the worm, or in this case, the early NIN fan gets the new single.
