Nine Inch Nails are going small on their upcoming tour. The Trent Reznor-led group is coming out of hibernation with a theater swing that will give fans a rare up-close-and-personal look at the new lineup.
The 23-date outing is slated to hit a number of North American cities on multiple nights, beginning with a two-night stand at the 2,300-capacity Warfield in San Francisco on April 27 and running through a pair of shows at the 2,400-capacity Soma in San Diego on May 30-31. The Dresden Dolls are scheduled to open all of the North American dates.
The band's new lineup features ex-Icarus Line guitarist Aaron North, A Perfect Circle bassist Jeordie White, keyboardist Allesandro Cortini and drummer Jerome Dillon.
With Teeth, the group's new album, is set for release on May 3 and will feature the songs "All the Love in the World," "You Know What You Are?," "The Collector," "The Hand That Feeds," "Love Is Not Enough," "Every Day Is Exactly the Same," "With Teeth," "Only," "Getting Smaller," "Sunspots," "The Line Begins to Blur," "Beside You in Time" and "Right Where It Belongs." The album's first single is "The Hand That Feeds"; the video for that track is in production.
The new tour dates are in addition to a string of previously announced sold-out club shows on the West Coast, which kicks off on March 23 with a gig at the William Saroyan Theatre in Fresno, California. The band will then play a pair of shows at the Astoria in London before gearing up for the North American dates, which will be followed by a show in Mexico and a mix of festival and arena dates in Europe during June and July.
