The duo won the Academy Award for Best Original Score … More »
Trent Reznor already went at Kanye West once during the press cycle for Nine Inch Nails’ new EP album Bad Witch, telling The Guardian that Kanye has “lost his mind.” Now he’s accusing Kanye — as well as the Weeknd — of ripping off the “immersive” live shows he claims NIN pioneered. More »
Nine Inch Nails shared very few details in the lead up to their new album, Bad Witch. But with a legacy that dates back 30 plus years, it’s an absence that’s certainly warranted, even by today’s standards of cultural ubiquity, considering the group’s continued wane into cult-like status.
Originally believed to have been the final installment in the band’s recent trilogy EP series, frontman Trent Reznor insists Bad Witch is an album. EP’s feel less important, he nearly swears. Though if the new album had been an EP like originally expected it would have been just as demanding of a listen. Just thirty minutes and six tracks in total, Bad Witch is textual and progressive. Still severely dependent on the guitars that have driven NIN since the early ’90s, they’re relying on severely off-kilter production; whirling saxophones, ample acid house bass lines, newly poised post-punk drumming.
Saxophones and industrial-tinged synthesizers glitter and delight throughout only to spiral out of control with an unabashed urgency and eerie evocativeness that begs innumerable listens. At the very least its an album that demands the awareness and attention of its listeners, just like the very world it exists in spite of.
Trent Reznor has been making the press rounds to promote Bad Witch, the final installment of Nine Inch Nails’ EP trilogy, which he’s calling an LP so that it won’t slip through the cracks of streaming services. Yesterday he was in the New York Times calling out “the Taylor Swifts of the world” … More »

Last week, Nine Inch Nails announced a new record called Bad Witch. Although it seems to be the third and final installment in the planned trilogy of EPs that began with 2016’s Not The Actual Events and also includes last year’s ADD VIOLENCE, Bad Witch also seems to be a full album and … More »
Nine Inch Nails just announced Bad Witch, the third EP in their trilogy, but perhaps of greater interest is their new round of tour dates and the security measures they’re taking with ticket sales. Specifically, tickets for the Cold And Black And Infinite Tour — with openers the Jesus And Mary Chain! — will only … More »
Trent Reznor‘s neighbor has been engaging in some wildly suspicious behavior over the past few months. TMZ reports that legal documents filed by Reznor indicate his neighbor, Nader Afshar, has been harassing him and his family for months — and has started to become increasingly threatening.
Afshar’s behavior reportedly includes expressing his hatred of Reznor to a friend leaving Trent’s house and yelling at him that Satan was coming to get Trent. Another incident report, which took place on Christmas Eve, states that Reznor — outside, playing with his kids — spotted Afshar walking down the sidewalk in a drunken, disheveled state wearing an open shirt, shorts and santa hat ranting that “rich people can do anything they want, but the Lord will get them in the end.”
Reznor has officially requested a restraining order on his neighbor, asking a judge to keep his neighbor at least 10 yards away from him and his family, as well as workers at his residence. A court hearing regarding the matter is scheduled to take place next month, but Page Six reports a temporary order has been secured.
