Nine Inch Nails Debut New Songs At First Show Since 2009

(Radio.com) Nine Inch Nails took the stage at Japan's Fuji Rock Festival on Friday to play their first show since 2009, treating fans to new songs off their upcoming album, Hesitation Marks, due out September 3.

Trent Reznor and the band played the record's first single, "Came Back Haunted" and premiered two other new tracks including songs "Copy Of A" and "Find My Way," which you can watch here.

They also played hits like "Hurt," "Closer," "The Hand That Feeds," "Head Like A Hole" and "Sanctified," off their 1987 debut, Pretty Hate Machine. It's the first time the band's played that song live since 1996.

In an recent interview with the New York Times, Reznor talked about his approach for the band's upcoming festival dates, which include Chicago's Lollapalooza and San Francisco's Outside Lands, saying that he was inspired by Talking Heads' 1983 tour, famously documented in the concert film, Stop Making Sense. He explained that for these festival gigs, he will start out onstage alone before the band gradually appears around him. More including video and the setlist.
