Monsters Of Goth: Nine Inch Nails, Bauhaus Uniting For Summer Tour

Trent Reznor's band wraps its current run April 1, launches a 31-date trek May 26.

Trent Reznor and his Nine Inch Nails spent the better part of 2005 on the road, logging miles and racking up sales for the band’s 2005 LP, With Teeth — which has sold more than 904,000 copies to date. With a 31-date run set to kick off in May, 2006 is shaping up to be another busy year on the road for the band.

While Reznor is planning to take a two-month respite when the band’s current trek with opener Saul Williams winds down April 1 in Las Vegas, Nine Inch Nails are looking at another busy summer. The Nails will kick off their next tour on May 26 in George, Washington, when they close out the first night of this year’s Sasquatch Music Festival. The arena tour is scheduled to conclude on July 8 in Mountain View, California.

For this next road trip, Nine Inch Nails have called on two acts to fill the opening slots: U.K. gloom merchants Bauhaus will take the stage for the entire tour, just before NIN’s set, and the first 14 dates of the tour will also feature TV on the Radio. The band has yet to book a second opener for the latter half of the trek, which begins June 16 in Holmdel, New Jersey.

In the meantime, Nine Inch Nail’s single for “Every Day Is Exactly the Same,” out April 4, will feature remixes of the track — the third released from With Teeth — as well as reworkings of “The Hand That Feeds” and “Only.”
