Nine Inch Nails have announced today their final record in the trilogy that began with 2016’s Not the Actual Events and 2017’s ADD VIOLENCE.
Though initially assumed to be an EP, the new collection of six songs titled Bad Witch is being billed as a new album, and is set for release on June 22nd, just in time for Nine Inch Nails appearance at the Robert Smith curated Meltdown Festival in London.
Along with the new record comes the announcement of this September’s Cold and Black Infinite North America 2018 Tour, that includes The Jesus and Mary Chain all on dates.
See Full dates at NIN.com. Tickets will not be sold online, and only available at Box Office.
Regarding the matter, see Trent Reznor’s official statement below:
“What? Why? Physical world presale?
“The promise of a world made better by computers and online connectivity has failed us in many ways, particularly when it comes to ticketing. Everything about the process sucks and everyone loses except the reseller. We’ve decided to try something different that will also likely suck, but in a different way. We’re hoping many of you will be happy with the results, while some may do what they always do and bitch about it.
Here’s how it works:
“You (an actual human being) show up at the box office, interact with the ticket seller (another actual human being) and purchase up to four tickets that will actually be handed to you on the spot. The tickets will not be available online or anywhere else before or during that day. All seats (including the best seats) will be available first come, first serve. You may actually encounter other actual human beings with similar interests likely wearing black clothing during the process and potentially interact with them. The experience has the potential* to be enjoyable. Nine inch nails has always been about bringing people together, living life to the fullest and good times.**
“Any remaining tickets will be sold at a later date.”
**not entirely true.”
