A great new interview done by Paul Semel of the gaming website Global Gaming has been added to the Press page. Thanks, Paul, for the heads up. And to anyone who is a serious gamer, do check out the Global Gaming website, where there are lots more articles and information to be found.
Everyone have a happy and safe holiday, however you choose to celebrate it. As always, thanks for your support of this site throughout the year and, of course, for your support of Jeordie!
Two new photos have been added to the Candid gallery.
It has recently been brought to my attention that there is yet another page on myspace.com which has apparently been set up in an attempt to lure the fans into thinking it is Jeordie. You should first be aware that Jeordie has publicly stated in a recent chat with the Spiral (NIN) fan club that he DOES NOT have a myspace account. Additionally, although www.myspace.com/jwbasetendencies appears to be dormant for the moment, due to the use of the Base Tendencies name on this particular page, I would like to publicly state at this time, before any confusion sets in, that neither myself nor this website is in any way affiliated with this myspace page. This site is not represented on myspace.com in any way, nor do I have plans to set up a page on myspace.com at any time in the future. Anyone attempting to affiliate themselves with this site on myspace or any similar website, is doing so under false pretenses.
A new interview which appears in the Winter 2005 issue of German magazine Wahrschauer has been added to the Press page. A big thanks goes out to kurai for translating the article from German to English.
Also, it has come to light that NIN's appearance in Miami, FL on 3.18.06 will actually be a part of the Global Gathering festival, which also features performances by Rob Zombie and Avenged Sevenfold, among others. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by going to this location.
The Media page has been updated with several Amboog.A.Lard vintage performance and behind-the-scenes video clips. Once again, thanks go out to Barry Alpert for providing the footage. The NIN Live gallery has also been updated with four new photos. Thanks to Victoria Wesson for the Reno shots.
Nine Inch Nails have announced another new tour stop at the County Coliseum in El Paso, TX on 3.30.06. Ticket info will be forthcoming.
Nine Inch Nails performance tonight at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show in Los Angeles will be available via webcast on KROQ's official website. The webcast begins at 4:30 and, in addition to live performances, will also feature interviews with the bands performing. If you wish only to view NIN's performance, they are scheduled to take the stage at 8:30 p.m., however these times are subject to change so you should probably log on a little earlier. For more information go here.
This is another one that's yet to be announced at nin.com, but the band will be performing in Milwaukee, WI at The Rave on 2.11.06. Tickets will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. on 12.17.05 at The Rave's box office (414-342-RAVE) and through Ticketmaster.
A video of Jeordie's 4.24.02 guest appearance with Mondo Generator at the Troubadour nightclub in Hollywood is available for viewing at this location. "Ode To Clarissa" was directed by Robert Sexton, who's website is hollywoodasylum.com. This video originally appeared on Mondo Generator's now out-of-print DVD entitled "A Tour That Never Existed".
Finally, the Candid photo gallery has been updated with a fan photo from Fresno, CA. Thanks to Deadlyne for sending it in and Nikki for allowing it to be used. Having not seen these before, I've also updated the Manson live gallery with two photos from the 1997 Dynamo Open Air Festival (scroll down to the "Portrait" section). Thanks to Hahn Jerome for sending them in.

[12:10 p.m.] Good news for those of you who have been in search of anything Amboog.A.Lard – you will no longer have to resort to ebay to find what you're looking for. With the approval of Jeordie and his former Amboog-A-Lard bandmates, this site is now hosting all tracks from A New Hope as well as demo tracks from 1990 and 1991 for free download. Go to the Media page to check them out. An Amboog.A.Lard photo page has also been added with exclusive pictures both on and off stage. A big thanks to former Amboog.A.Lard bassist Barry Alpert for providing the files and for providing guidance in getting them up and running. The Biography page has also been updated to include just a little more pre-Marilyn Manson information.
A review from last Saturday's peformance in Oakland, CA has been added to the Reviews page.
[8:39 a.m.] A couple of new photos from the Toronto gig can be found on the NIN Live page. Thanks to magsw23 for sending them in.
In case some of you weren't aware, Trent did confirm during a chat earlier this week on The Spiral fan club that there will be another round of U.S. tour dates beginning the middle of January and going into March. The new dates are expected to be announced shortly.
[7:21 a.m.] The NIN Live and Candid galleries have been updated with new photos and reviews of the Toronto show have been added to the Reviews page. Thanks to sinister for the fan review.
[4:41 p.m.] NIN's December 1st performance in Buenos Aires, previously scheduled for December 2nd at Club Ciudad, has been moved to a venue called Luna Park. Thanks to rosecruger for the heads up.
[8:30 a.m.] Nine Inch Nails have now been confirmed to be appearing at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas concert on December 10th at the Gibson Ampitheatre in Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale Monday, November 14th at 6 p.m. through Ticketmaster.
Updates have been made to both the Live gallery (6 photos from the NOLA Voodoo Festival performance) and the Reviews page (Boston 11.8.05). Thanks to beth for the photos (screen captures, actually) and princessomega for the review.
[1:36 p.m.] Nine Inch Nails will be playing a few exclusive dates in the Western U.S. after their return from South America. The dates and onsale information is as follows:
12.6.05 – Santa Cruz, CA – Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium (on sale TBA)
12.7.05 – San Luis Obispo, CA – CalPoly Recreation Center (on sale 11.14 @ 10 a.m.)
12.8.05 – Reno, NV – Reno Hilton Theatre (on sale 11.19 @ 10 a.m.)
According to the NIN Hotline, there are rumors of an appearance at KROQ radio's Acoustic Christmas show on December 10th in Los Angeles, but this has yet to be officially confirmed by either the radio station or nin.com. It is also not clear whether this would be an acoustic performance by the entire band or just by Trent.
[9:57 a.m.] The Performance page over at nin.com has been updated with the show scheduled for November 30th in Santiago no longer listed and the Buenos Aires show being moved up from December 2nd to December 1st. At this time, local information indicates that the Santiago show is cancelled. Additionally, the venue for Buenos Aires now reads "TBA", suggesting that the show will not be held at Club Ciudad as originally indicated.
Both the Candid and Live galleries have been updated. Thanks to Barry Alpert for the backstage photos and Christal Anne for the live shots.
Finally, I've made some further updates to the Gear page, which includes a couple of new photos as well. Thanks once again to Barry Alpert for his help on this.
[3:17 p.m.] NIN's entire performance at Voodoo Festival in New Orleans last weekend can now be viewed over at vh1.com's website. Click on "video" and then "Voodoo Festival". Be aware that it may take a long time to load on some systems.
[9:40 a.m.] With the curtain/screen not being utilized during NIN's Voodoo Festival performances this past weekend, Crystal Noll was able to capture a couple of shots of Jeordie on acoustic guitar during "Right Where It Belongs". Head over to the Live gallery to check them out. Thanks, Crystal!
[6:35 p.m.] New reviews of the Orlando, Tampa and Cleveland shows can be found on the Reviews page and a photo from the Orlando show has been added to the Live gallery. Thanks to Chimera for the Tampa review.
[6:15 p.m.] Unfortunately, nin.com has now announced that at this time they are unable to reschedule the Fort Lauderdale show which was scheduled to take place tonight and as such, the show has been cancelled. Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase. Tomorrow night's show in Orlando is confirmed to go on as scheduled and there are still tickets available through all Ticketmaster outlets and online at ticketmaster.com.
[10:47 a.m.; updated 12:07 p.m.] Due to Hurricane Wilma, NIN's Ft. Lauderdale show, scheduled for tomorrow night, has been postponed. There is no word yet as to the new date. As of now, the 10/25 show in Orlando is still officially a go, though depending upon amount of damage, power outages, etc., this could change. As I get more information, I will post it here.
Both the Live and Candid photo pages have been updated. Thanks to Victoria Wesson and Patrick McAuley, respectively.
[3:28 p.m.] Nine Inch Nails have announced on their current page that they will now play the October 30th Voodoo Festival date in Memphis, in addition to playing on the 29th in New Orleans. Tickets are available for the Memphis date through Ticketmaster.
A couple of new photos can be found in the Live gallery. I've also added some information to the Gear page. Thanks to Barry for helping me piece this together.
[6:25 a.m.] Finally, some non-NIN news to pass along. Back in December I reported that Jeordie was collaborating with Unkle on an unnamed project, though details were non-existant. Now it appears at least some of the blanks have been filled in (thanks, Craig!) with the news that Jeordie plays bass on a brand new Unkle track called "Leap Of Faith" and also on Unkle's re-recorded mix of Oasis' "Cast No Shadow". Both of these tracks appear exclusively on the soundtrack to the movie GOAL!, which is playing now across Europe and the UK and is scheduled to open in North America in February 2006. The album is available now on Big Brother Records and a few sample tracks can be heard by going here. Detailed credits for the tracks on which Jeordie plays are now up on the Credits page of this site. For more info on the film, check out goalthemovie.com.
Getting back to NIN for a moment now, I just wanted to let everyone know that tickets to NIN's December 2nd show at Club Ciudad in Buenos Aires are available on line at this location. Thanks to Gabe for the link.
[5:54 p.m.] NIN's official website has now added the December 2nd Buenos Aires date at Club Ciudad to their performance page, and have also confirmed a November 30th date in Santiago, Chile (venue TBD). Ticket info is not yet available, however a link to purchase tickets to the Claro Festival being held in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janiero has been added. Tickets are on sale now.
A review of the Cleveland show has been added to the Reviews page.
[5:37 a.m.] For those who are planning to attend the Voodoo Music Festival, there are some major changes you need to be aware of. The date that NIN will be playing, October 29th, has been moved from Memphis back to New Orleans as a tribute to those involved in the cleanup and recovery of the city. If I am reading this correctly, the date on the 29th is an invitation only event, unless you already have tickets for the event. Further tickets will not be available to the public for the New Orleans date. To decipher the information yourself, go to Voodoo's official website and click on "Tickets".
[2:50 p.m.] Tomorrow night's show in Oakland, CA has been postponed until November 19th. Tickets for tomorrow's performance will be honored. No other dates will be rescheduled at this time, however, it appears that Jerome will not be returning to the lineup, at least for the time being. Information on a replacement will be forthcoming soon.
[6:46 a.m.] Jerome is back in the hospital after performing last night in Sacramento, CA. No other information is available at this time as to his condition or how this will affect upcoming shows. I will keep everyone updated. Best wishes to Jerome for a speedy recovery.
A review of the Seattle show has been added to the Reviews page.
[9:49 p.m.] Two reviews have been added to the Reviews page, one of NIN's recent performance in Brisbane (thanks to missmacbeth for a great write up!) and my own run down of the first two shows of the U.S. tour in Phoenix and Fresno.
Also, the new location for the Voodoo Festival is expected to be announced tomorrow. I probably won't have internet access tomorrow until later in the day, so keep an eye on Voodoo's official website for the new information.
[11:50 a.m.] Trent has left a new message on NIN's official site, stating that Jerome is okay, indicating that the show in Phoenix will go on as scheduled. Very good news on all fronts!
[4:34 a.m.] Tonight's Nine Inch Nails show in Tucson, AZ has been canceled. No further information is available as yet as to a makeup date, ticket refunds, etc. You can read a message posted by Trent on nin.com here. Get well wishes for Jerome can be posted on his message board at jeromedillon.net.
[11:40 p.m.] Tonight's show in San Diego had to be cancelled about halfway into the set due to drummer Jerome Dillon's suffering from "shortness of breath and severe chest pains". Jerome has been rushed to a local hospital where he is being diagnosed. Please send your good thoughts and prayers his way tonight. As of now, the band has rescheduled this show for November 20th and you should hold on to your ticket stubs. I have no further details yet as to tomorrow's show in Tucson or any other shows scheduled for the near future. I will post more info as it comes in.
[6:42 p.m.] In a very lengthy, live in-studio interview with San Diego's 94.9 tonight, Trent confirmed what I'd mentioned here last month, that Nine Inch Nails will, in fact, be playing more markets in the U.S. in January, followed by a return trip overseas (Europe and Australia mentioned specifically). He also stated that the band may do a "shed" (i.e., outdoor ampitheatre) tour next summer. I assume this would be in the U.S., but he didn't confirm where this tour would take place. More info on all of this will be posted as it comes in.
[7:40 a.m.] According to a bulk email sent out by myspace.com to its members, Nine Inch Nails' myspace profile is set to feature exclusive live footage of the upcoming U.S. tour starting on September 16th. This footage will be updated nightly. NIN's profile can be accessed here.
[10:12 a.m.] Further clarifying the status of the Voodoo Music Festival, the organizers have confirmed to Billboard magazine that they are in the process of finding a new city to host the festival on the originally scheduled dates of October 29-30, and that the event will be used to raise funds for victims of Hurricane Katrina. In a telephone interview with San Diego radio station 91X this morning, Trent himself spoke of the festival's efforts to relocate, pretty much confirming that Nine Inch Nails will still be a part of the lineup. For those who are holding tickets to this event, original tickets will be honored at the new location. Refunds are available by phone or at points of purchase.
[11:03 a.m.] I wanted to pass along an update that the Voodoo Music Festival organizers have issued on their message board regarding the status of the two day event, which Nine Inch Nails was scheduled to headline on October 29th:
"To all of you with questions and concerns about the status of this year's festival, please know we are working to move forward with alternative plans now that it's obvious that our hometown will not be available this year.
Our goal is for Voodoo to join the relief and rebuilding efforts by becoming a fundraiser, and providing aid to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. We appreciate all your kind words, thoughts, and especially your patience during this transitional time. We will update you with our plans as they develop."
This is all the information that is available at this time.
[4:47 p.m.] Rolling Stone's Greg Prato has posted a review of Goon Moon's EP over at allmusic.com, which has been added to the Press page and can be read by clicking here.
Speaking of Rolling Stone, they recently checked in with Josh Homme regarding QOTSA's plans for the upcoming months, including the trek with NIN which begins in San Diego on September 16th. Josh also stated during this brief interview that he will begin work on Desert Sessions 11/12 later this year. It is not yet known whether Jeordie will appear on this installment but, given the fact that NIN will more than likely take a little break after they return from South America in late November/early December, here's hoping that he will have some time to once again lend his talents to the project. As always, I will keep you all posted.
[8:59 a.m.] In light of the ongoing disaster in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, I wanted to pass on the following links.
American Red Cross
America's Second Harvest
Additional organizations can be found by going to abcnews.com.
If you are looking for missing family/friends or wish to let someone know that you are okay, go to nola.com and scroll down to the Help Center on the left hand side of the page. There you will find links to various message centers where you can find or leave information for loved ones and also offer assistance in providing shelter, etc. for those who have been displaced.
My heart goes out to everyone affected by this tragedy.
First San Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and now there is more good news for our neighbors in South America - Nine Inch Nails have confirmed that they will be announcing more South American dates "very soon". Keep checking nin.com and/or this site for further updates.
The Press page has been updated with a blast from the past - an August 1997 interview with Kerrang magazine where Jeordie, more commonly known as Twiggy Ramirez back then, talks about his record collection. Click here to go directly to the article. Thanks to 2freakettes at encirclepaedia.net for sending this in.
NIN have updated their Performance page with a new U.S. date at the Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, PA on 11.6.05. The November appearances at Brazil's Claro Festival have also been confirmed. The festival takes place on 11.26.05 in Sao Paulo and on 11.27.05 in Rio de Janeiro. Ticket information is not yet available for any of the newly confirmed shows.
Keep in mind that nothing is confirmed yet, but there is growing talk suggesting that not only will Nine Inch Nails be returning to Europe after the first of the year, but that another round of dates in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand might be on tap as well. Trent himself has allegedly spoken of such dates at recent meet and greets that have taken place. I will let everyone know when/if new information comes to light on any of this.
According to this article posted by The NIN Hotline, Nine Inch Nails will perform at the Claro Que E Rock Festival in Brazil in late November. The festival takes place in Sao Paulo on November 26th and in Rio de Janeiro on November 27th. There is no official update on NIN's performance page as yet.
Some of you have expressed concern that Jeordie would cut off his hair based on the fact that Trent cut off his. However, a new photo from Japan's Summersonic Festival just added to the NIN Live gallery shows substantial evidence that all of Jeordie's hairs remain intact. Is that a collective sigh of relief I'm hearing?
[11:40 a.m.] The following photo galleries have been updated: APC Live (5 photos; thanks to Mrs.Goony), NIN Live (1 photo)and NIN Promo (2 photos).
Following up on last week's announcement of NIN ticket auctions, many of which start today, this is the link to the page which will give you access to the auctions where you will be able to place bids on either general admission or reserved tickets. All of the information you need to participate in these auctions can be found on this page, including the schedule of auction start dates for shows not yet up for auction today. Good luck to all who bid!
If you haven't already seen this over at nin.com, starting on Monday, August 8th, Nine Inch Nails will join forces with Ticketmaster, initiating a series of online auctions where fans can bid on premium tickets to shows on the band's upcoming arena tour of the U.S. and Canada. This is part of a two-tiered effort to thrwart scalpers, the first part being the recent launch of the NIN fan club, The Spiral. NIN will donate a portion of the proceeds made from these auctions (which otherwise would have made some scalper's wallet fatter) to The Innocence Project, a non-profit organization which provides post-conviction DNA testing to yield conclusive proof of innocence. For more information and to read the press release, go here.
More itinerary changes are being reported this morning on nin.com's tour page. First, the November 11th Albany, NY show at the Pepsi Arena has mysteriously been replaced with a "TBA". Guess they won't be going to Albany after all. The second change is that they have now added the November 14th Winnepeg show at the MTS Centre, thus "officially" confirming the show, which a lot of people already knew about anyway. Tickets for this one go on sale this Saturday, August 6th, at 10:00 a.m. through Ticketmaster. On the subject of ticket sales, there is a discrepancy regarding the Toronto show, with nin.com showing the date to be Saturday, August 6th, while Ticketmaster's website shows the onsale date as being a day earlier. I would advise checking with Ticketmaster to confirm the onsale information.
The nin.com tour page has now confirmed the rescheduling of the Salt Lake City show from November 19th to October 4th. The ticket sale date is yet to be determined. Additionally, Toronto and Montreal have switched places. The Toronto show, originally scheduled for November 11th, will now take place on November 10th, while the Montreal show is moved from November 10th to November 11th. Tickets for both shows go on sale on Saturday, August 6th.
The NIN Hotline reports this morning that the Salt Lake City show has been rescheduled for October 4, 2005...which is when it was scheduled for in the first place, before being replaced by the now-cancelled Colorado Springs show. No word yet on when tickets go on sale and NIN's official tour page does not yet reflect the changes. If you purchased tickets for the Colorado Springs show, see the World Arena's official website for details regarding refunds or a chance to exchange the tickets for premium tickets to the October 5th Denver performance.
It's looking increasingly good for NIN to be making a stop in Winnipeg, with radio station Power 97 apparently confirming the show on the air yesterday (with details to come next week). NIN's official website has yet to add the date, however. Meanwhile, the Colorado Springs date scheduled for October 4th at the World Arena has been removed from NIN's tour page and also from the venue's listings. Word is the show is cancelled. And finally, I'm sorry to report that I still have no idea what's up with the Salt Lake City date scheduled for November 19th. NIN's site still has it listed as going on sale this Saturday at 10:00 a.m., but I have yet to see any other evidence that they will be playing the E Center on this date, or that they will be in Salt Lake City at all on this date.
NIN's official website has updated their Performance page with the Calgary and Edmonton dates. The Salt Lake City show is still listed as taking place on November 19th at the E-Center and going on sale July 30th at 10:00 a.m. I'm still, however, wondering how Nine Inch Nails will manage to perform there with a Utah Grizzlies game (I checked -- it *is* a home game) happening at the same time.
According to the Edmonton Sun, the November 16th show at the Rexall Center is also a go.
At least one of the Canadian dates I mentioned the other day appears closer to becoming reality. An article in today's Calgary Sun states that Nine Inch Nails, along with Queens of the Stone Age and Death From Above 1979 will perform at the Saddledome on November 17th, with an official announcement expected in the coming weeks. This concurs with the listing as it appears on the QOTSA website.
The QOTSA website also uncovers an apparent discrepancy involving the Salt Lake City date at the E Center on November 19th. This date has now been removed from their tour page and in checking the official website of the E Center, it appears that a hockey game is booked at that venue on that night. As with the Canadian dates, I will keep everyone posted on developments regarding the Salt Lake City date as well.
Two new photos have been added to the Candid gallery, which were taken during Nine Inch Nails' visit to Mexico City last month. Thanks to Wolfgang von Eminence Sade for both of these. For more photos and his write up (in Spanish) of the show and encounters with the band, visit his website at www.mansonmexico.com.
Queens of the Stone Age have updated their official website with three additional Canadian dates, which fill in the gap between NIN's Toronto (11.11) and Salt Lake City (11.19) gigs. While the site does not list Nine Inch Nails as the headlining act for these shows, they are also not listed as headlining Montreal and Toronto, which we know, in fact, they are. The newly added dates are as follows:
11.14.05 - Winnipeg, MB - MTS Center
11.16.05 - Edmonton, AB - Rexall Place
11.17.05 - Calgary, AB - Pengrowth Saddledome
Since these dates have not yet been added to NIN's website, I can't tell you that they are *100%* confirmed, but it seems more likely than not that these are a part of the NIN tour. As soon as I get confirmation either way, I will let everyone know.
Trent answers more questions today in nin.com's Access section. Relevant to the tour, Trent advises that no changes will be made regarding the Brixton gigs on July 13 and 14 in spite of the terrorist bombings earlier this week in London. He also confirms that the band will return to Europe for an arena tour and that the tour commencing this Fall is "shaping up to be quite different from the one we're completing now", with a "substantial" amount of tracks not performed thus far to be included in the set list.
Jeordie is also mentioned briefly. When asked how funny it is to see Jeordie playing "Starfuckers, Inc.", Trent responds that "many experiences and shared experiences have made us close."
An interview from the most recent Kerrang! has been added to the Press page and can be read here.
The NIN Hotline has provided additional information regarding tomorrow's show at Rock Werchter. The Studio Brussel broadcast will contain only audio, however another stream at Skynet Belgacom will reportedly contain video as well. However, this will be only for 2 or 3 songs, whereas Studio Brussel will apparently offer the entire performance.
Nine Inch Nails' performance at the Rock Werchter festival on Saturday, July 2nd will be broadcast live on line (with the correct plugins) by going to the Studio Brussel website. The webcast begins at 8 p.m. local (Belgium) time and 3 p.m. EST. You will need to click on "luister live". Thanks to the NIN Hotline for the info.
The Press page has been updated with Pitchfork Media's review of I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine"
Additional dates for the Fall tour have surfaced:
11.10.05 - Montreal QC - Bell Center
11.11.05 - Toronto, ON - Air Canada Center
11.19.05 - Salt Lake City, UT - E Center
Salt Lake City was originally listed for 10/4/05, but that has been changed. Instead, NIN will be appearing at the World Arena in Colorado Springs, CO on that date.
Two dates have been added to NIN's U.S. Fall tour as follows:
11.7.05 - Albany, NY - Pepsi Arena
11.8.05 - Boston, MA - Fleet Center
Nine Inch Nails is scheduled to appear at the Voodoo Music Experience festival in New Orleans on October 29th and the festival's official website was updated today with the rest of the lineup and ticket information. Go here to check it out.
Meanwhile, the band's performance tonight at the Greenfield Festival in Switzerland had to be canceled due to severe weather, a brief video of which can be viewed at nin.com's Current page (click on the first photo on the left side of the screen). There is no information at this time regarding rescheduling.
The Reviews page has been updated with a review of the June 22nd Paris performance and 8 photos from the same have been added to the Live gallery. Thanks to TheHighPriestess for her review and to Gwen at VIP Live for the photos.
NIN's official website has updated with information on the upcoming "Only" single. The scheduled international release date is July 25th and it will be available in several different formats, including a DVD which will feature the "Only" music video directed by David Fincher.

Just a reminder for those of you who aren't able to or didn't want to order online, Goon Moon's I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine hits record stores today. A a new, 4-star review from punknews.org has also been added to the Press page.
Two new photos have been added to the Candid gallery (see if you can tell who's who!) Check out buddyhead.com's gossip page for more on this. They also state in their latest update that Jeordie will be on board for the next Desert Sessions recording, however, given the others they are naming at the moment (and given Buddyhead's penchant for sarcasm), it remains to be seen if this can be taken seriously. Josh Homme did recently confirm to MTV that he has set aside the month of December to work on Vol. 11/12, but no mention was made as to who will be involved in the project. I will, of course, keep everyone up to date on this.
Live 4 Metal's review of I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine has been added to the Press page. Thanks to Luce for sending it in.
The official release date for Goon Moon's I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine is June 7th, but Suicide Squeeze Records is making it available now through their online store. This is not a pre-order, the CD is being shipped as orders are placed. Additionally, all orders received prior to June 7th will automatically be entered to win a vinyl test pressing. You can place your order by going here and many of you will be happy to know that shipping is available worldwide using this link.
Change of plans -- Nine Inch Nails will NOT be performing at the MTV Movie Awards as previously announced. Go here for the reason why. Good for Trent sticking to his guns!
Billboard has confirmed that Nine Inch Nails is among the acts that will perform at this year's Voodoo Festival, which will be held at City Park in New Orleans October 29th and 30th. It is expected that up to 80 acts will appear on 7 different stages, with the full lineup to be announced on June 24th. More information on the festival will be forthcoming on its official website.
Jeordie talks at length about Goon Moon and their debut album in a brand new interview with online magazine Aural Minority. It has been added to this site's Press page and can be accessed directly by clicking here.
Goon Moon's EP, I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine is now available for pre-order at amazon.com. Click here to order. The album is scheduled for release on June 7th.
Nine Inch Nails' official website has officially confirmed three Australian dates as follows:
8/17/05 - Melbourne, AU - Rod Laver Arena
8/19/05 - Sydney, AU - Hordern Pavillion
8/22/05 - Brisbane, AU - Entertainment Center
Tickets for all three shows go on sale on May 30th at this location.
Though it has yet to be announced on the official site, it appears that NIN will be touring Australia in late August after they wrap up their shows in Japan. The NIN Hotline reports that an August 22nd show has been confirmed for Brisbane at the Brisbane Entertainment Center. Expect more dates to be forthcoming soon.
Finding decent quality photos of Jeordie onstage with NIN has thus far proven difficult (almost all of what I've seen so far have been of Trent), but I have been able to add two more to the Live gallery, courtesy of Chris Lukasik. Nice shots, Chris! Also, I have added The Boston Globe's review of last night's show at the Orpheum Theatre to the Reviews page. You can read it here.
MTV has confirmed on its website that Nine Inch Nails will be among the performers next month at the MTV Movie Awards. The show tapes on June 4th and will air on June 9th.
A review of last night's show in Chicago (where Jeordie once again played keyboards) has been added to the Reviews page. Thanks to Rich Kozlowski for the write up.
Just a little update from the road: In addition to switching between bass and guitar and providing backup vocals with Nine Inch Nails, Jeordie played keyboards for the first time ever onstage last night for "Something I Can Never Have", the newest addition to NIN's ever-changing set list. Jeordie's definitely a very busy guy on this tour! For a brief report on the entire show (and Tuesday's as well), you can check the "Show Review" forum on the message board.
The Press page has been updated with aversion.com's review of Goon Moon's "I Got a Brand New Egg Layin' Machine".
For anyone going to see Nine Inch Nails at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival this Sunday in Indio, CA, I just wanted to pass on the information that their set is scheduled from 9:00 p.m.-10:15 p.m. on the main stage. For more specifics on the festival, you can check out the official website at www.coachella.com.
NIN's official website has been updated with a brief little video teaser. Click here to view (you will need Quicktime). Also, the Manson-era candid gallery has been updated with a rather rare photo taken of Jeordie when he DJ'd at LA nightclub Life On Mars back in 2000. Click here to have a look. Thanks to Julian for sending it in.
If you're going to see Nine Inch Nails at the Joint in Las Vegas on April 30th, it might be worth your while to head over to the Body English nightclub (formerly Baby's) at the Hard Rock Hotel to check out Camp Freddy's set later that night. Camp Freddy, the "jam" band consisting of Dave Navarro, Billy Morrison, Matt Sorum, Chris Chaney and Donovan Leitch, will be closing out the Hard Rock's 10th Anniversary Bash that night and in today's entry on Navarro's blog page, he states that he hopes to get Jeordie up on stage to do a song or two with them. With several bands in addition to NIN performing as a part of the Hard Rock's celebration, you never know who might show up to jam with these guys. Check Camp Freddy's website for the impressive list of guest performers, including Jeordie, who've appeared with them in the past.
To correct an item I reported on the other week, it appears that Jeordie's remix of Hour Cast's "This Life" does not appear on their self-titled EP currently available, but rather will appear on their full length CD entitled "State of Disgrace", which is set for a summer release on Alkamedia Records. Former NIN drummer Chris Vrenna also contributes a remix by way of the track "3rd of July".
Regarding the release date of Goon Moon's EP, I just wanted to let everyone know that I've received official information clarifying that "I Got A New Egg Layin' Machine" is currently scheduled for a June 7th release, not May 10th.
Chris Goss spoke to Rolling Stone recently about the upcoming Moon Goon EP "I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine," set for release on June 7th. "It's all over the fucking place," he describes the material. "It runs the gamut from pure rock to tracks that just sound like noise." Although this release will only feature 10 songs, Goss reports that a total of 50 songs were actually completed. Once Jeordie's commitments with Nine Inch Nails are fulfilled, the trio expects to release a full length LP which will be supported by a tour. To read more click here, and to hear a sample track, click here.
According to pitchforkmedia.com, the track listing for Goon Moon's LP will be as follows:
1. The Wired Wood Shed
2. Mud Puppies
3. Inner Child Abuse
4. The Smoking Man Returns
5. At the Kit Kat Klub
6. Rock Weird (Weird Rock)
8. I Got a Brand New Egg Layin' Machine
9. No Umbrellas
10. Apartment 31
The project features Jeordie and Chris Goss trading off on vocals, guitar and bass, while Hella's Zach Hill handles all the drumming chores. It is said to capture ideas "hidden, skipped or vetoed" by the members' full-time bands. And while the news posted on the Masters of Reality official website last week indicates a release date of June 7th, pitchforkmedia.com lists it as May 10th. For now, I am leaning towards the June 7th date to be the more likely one, but I will let you know if that changes.
More tickets have been released for the July 14th Brixton Academy show. Click here to purchase.
A review of the March 30th Astoria gig has been added to the Reviews page. Thanks to Calliope for a great write-up!
Jeordie recently took some time off from his chores with Nine Inch Nails to help out Boston-based rockers Hour Cast by remixing the track "This Life", which appears on their recently released 5 song self-titled EP. The EP is available in the Boston area at Newbury Comics, Strawberries, FYE and Tower and can also be purchased and downloaded at itunes. For more information on Hour Cast, check out their official website at www.hourcast.com

[6:56 a.m. PST] Nine Inch Nails have been confirmed for Germany's Area 4 Festival which takes place on June 25th. Information on tickets can be found here.
[Update 8:23 a.m. PST] More German festival news has surfaced: NIN will also be playing the Hurricane and Southside festivals, both of which take place June 10th through June 12th. Click the respective links for more information, though the band schedule still remains to be set.
[5:23 a.m. PST] The Nine Inch Nails tour continues to come together bit by bit, with the band's rumored Mexico City appearance now appearing to be confirmed. The tour date listing at Pollstar has been updated to include the June 2nd date at the Palacio De Los Deportes. Despite the fact that the NIN official website's tour page has not yet added the date, it looks like this one is a go.
[11:25 a.m. PST] I wanted to pass along a couple of Nine Inch Nails updates from the last few days. First, the NIN Hotline is reports today that video footage for "The Hand That Feeds", the single forthcoming from With Teeth, was shot over the weekend in Pleasant Hill, San Francisco and Oakland. It is being directed by Ian Inaba, who previously directed Eminem's "Mosh" video. Those on the scene report that Trent has never sounded better and that the video is going to be "awesome". A release date for the single and accompanying video is yet to be determined.
Meanwhile, NIN's official website has revealed the track list for With Teeth. It reads as follows:
All The Love In The World
You Know What You Are?
The Hand That Feeds
Love Is Not Enough
Every Day Is Exactly The Same
The Line Begins To Blur
Beside You In Time
Right Where It Belongs
An audio clip is available here (click on the image). With Teeth has a scheduled release date of May 3rd.
[1:12 p.m. PST] Though these have yet to be confirmed by the Nine Inch Nails camp, two more tour dates have come to light over the last few days. Mexican radio station Reactor 105 has allegedly confirmed a June 2nd date at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City, and fans attending a recent Marilyn Manson concert at this same venue reported seeing advertisements for the NIN show. Meanwhile, infoconcert.com states that Nine Inch Nails will appear on June 22nd at The Zenith in Paris. Pending an official announcements, I will try to keep everyone updated as best I can as information continues to trickle in.
[11:15 a.m. PST] The Nine Inch Nails official website has confirmed three new tour dates as follows:
3/23/05 - Fresno, CA - William Saroyan Theatre
3/24/05 - Reno, NV - Reno Hilton Showroom
3/25/05 - Davis, CA - Freeborn Hall at UC Davis
Tickets for all three go on sale at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, February 12th. The Fresno and Reno shows will be available through Ticketmaster, while tickets for the Davis show can be purchased through tickets.com. Tickets will also be available at the box offices of all three venues at this same time.
[8:17 a.m. PST] Now you see it, now you don't. In checking the Ticketmaster page early this morning to see if perhaps more dates for Nine Inch Nails had been listed, I found instead that the two Philadelphia dates have been removed and there are no dates listed at all. I am not sure if Ticketmaster simply jumped the gun in listing the Philadelphia dates or if these shows simply won't be taking place as had been listed. Hopefully confirmed dates will be forthcoming from the NIN camp in the near future.
[4:36 p.m. PST] Two U.S. dates for Nine Inch Nails have just been added to Ticketmaster's listing, May 18th and 19th at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA. Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 5th at 10:00 a.m. Hopefully all of the dates of this leg of the tour will be released soon, rather than my only being able to report them one and two at a time.
The Los Angeles Times has confirmed Nine Inch Nail's appearance at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival, headlining the second day of the event on Sunday, May 1st. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, February 5th through Ticketmaster.
The official lineup won't be announced until Monday, January 31st, but it's looking very likely that Nine Inch Nails will be a part of this year's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, which takes place on April 30th and May 1st in Indio, CA. Los Angeles-based online magazine Ambitious Outsiders reports on its news page today that the William Morris Agency has confirmed NIN to be playing, although no indication is given as to which day they will play and whether or not they will be headlining.
Here's a few updates I wanted to pass along...
Regarding the record that Jeordie has been working on with Chris Goss, I am now informed that it will see a June 2005 release on Suicide Squeeze Records. It is described as "very noisy, hard to listen to, but very good." I did find an official website for the record label, so you might want to bookmark it for future reference, as it looks like this is where you would be able to purchase the record. I am also able to clarify now that this record is NOT Jeordie's solo album, but rather a separate project done just for fun.
In NIN news, reliable info says that Mike Tempesta will not be joining the lineup as has previously been reported.
Two tour dates for Nine Inch Nails have been announced via the band's official mailing list. The band will perform two nights at London's Astoria on Wednesday March 30th and Thursday March 31st. Tickets go on sale to the general public on January 22nd. No word yet as to the "first round of U.S. dates" that the official site claims are to be announced in "the near future".
In lineup news, Mike Tempesta, formerly of Powerman 5000, is now said to be replacing Ralf Dietel on guitar.
Just wanted to update the NIN lineup situation: Ralf Dietel is apparently out. No word yet on who, if anyone, will take his place.
The NIN Hotline appears to have confirmed what I've been suspecting, that not only will Jeordie be playing bass on the upcoming NIN tour, but will be assuming some of the guitar duties as well. The lineup as to who will be playing what is as follows:
Trent Reznor: Vox/Guitar/Keyboards
Jerome Dillon: Drums
Jeordie White: Bass/Guitar
Ralf Dietel: Guitar
Alessandro Cortini: Keyboards
The first round of U.S. dates are expected to be unveiled "in the near future" according to a recent posting on NIN's official site.
The new issue of Kerrang! features an article on Nine Inch Nails and their upcoming release, With Teeth. Jeordie will indeed be joining the lineup for the tour, along with drummer Jerome Dillon and two relatively unknowns, Ralph Dietel and Alessandro Cortini. Ralf Dietel, who hails from a German band called Feuer, was rumored a few weeks back by the Nine Inch Nails Hotline to have joined the lineup; Cortini, meanwhile, is a founding member of modwheelmood. More information on him can be found here. The band are currently in rehearsals in a Los Angeles area studio for their upcoming world tour. The first round of dates will be announced shortly.
