Nine inch nails Soundgarden

Did you feel that earthquake this morning? Cool, cuz umm…it shook us all into some wormhole in the universe and dropped us back in 1996. Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden have announced a summer tour together with Death Grips in support. Guys, newsflash: Dr. Martens were’t a good look for me. However, despite that fact the heart of my sixth-grade Seattle self is warmed a bit by the news.

The tour, which kicks off on July 19th in Las Vegas, will bring together these two giants of music who took the rock world by storm nearly twenty years ago. After Reznor’s sojourn to film soundtracks and scoring, NIN released their studio return last year with Hesitation Marks, while Soundgarden released King Animal in 2012 after a long-time absence.

Sure, there isn’t a lot of love lost between Trent Reznor and Chris Cornell, but clearly the guys are big enough to collaborate on a summer amphitheater takeover. Their show at the Hollywood Bowl on August 25th will mark the last date of the tour, so it’s sure to be a memorable one. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 21st.
