Nine Inch Nails Go High-Tech at Outside Lands
Boasting the same awe-inspiring staging featured at the band's recent Lollapalooza performance (inspired by the Talking Heads' legendary 1984 concert film Stop Making Sense), Trent Reznor and crew changed up the set list, running through three new songs in a row — "Copy of A," "Disappointed" and "Came Back Haunted" — all taken from the upcoming eighth NIN full-length, Hesitation Marks.
The fan-pleasing set touched on a wide range of Nine Inch Nails' vast discography, including albums like 2008′s The Slip ("1,000,000"), 1992's Broken EP ("Help Me I Am in Hell," "Gave Up"), 1996′s The Fragile ("The Way Out is Through") and 1994 rarity "Burn," from the Natural Born Killers soundtrack.
Reznor also delved into the band's earlier material, digging into storied 1989 debut Pretty Hate Machine for "Head Like a Hole," "Terrible Lie" and dark-lit ballad "Something I Can Never Have."
"Closer," i.e. the one NIN song non-fans know, generated a gleefully profane crowd sing-along, while new song "Find My Way" already sounds like a standout track from the forthcoming Hesitation Marks. more on this story
