It would've been impossible for Nine Inch Nails to give up for good. Trent Reznor and his electronic/industrial cohorts are heading back on the road later this year in support of the first NIN studio recordings in half a decade. Hesitation Marks will be out via Columbia Records on September 3, and you can bet that the prickly new anthem "Came Back Haunted" will be on some setlists when North America gets some stadium visits from the Nails.
Reznor had his hands full the last couple years with his side project with wife Mariqueen Maandig, How to Destroy Angels, but the focus has shifted back to the 25-year-old band that pioneered many of the darkest sounds in alt rock. It should be an atmospheric series of shows with Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Explosions in the Sky along for support. Check out the full North American itinerary -- which officially begins in St. Paul after international dates and the Made in America Festival in Philly -- and new single below.
Here's Trent Reznor and his 2013 touring ensemble getting ready for the road.

In mid-May, Reznor announced that NIN vet Robin Finck would be rejoining the band for these tour dates: "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!"
The Nine Inch Nails tour will hit Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on September 28 with Explosions in the Sky as support.
