Just a reminder that there are only a few days left to purchase professionally shot photos from NIN's 2006 summer tour over at www.frcphotos.com. The photos were taken by NIN's official photographer, Rob Sheridan, and there are a few nice ones of Jeordie that you all might be interested in. The last day these will be available for purchase is this Sunday, December 31st.
A fourth show at London's Brixton Academy has been added for 3.11.07. Tickets go on sale this Monday, 12.18.06. Check your local listings for further information.
NIN's "Live: Beside You In Time" has been set for a 2.27.07 U.S. release, with the international release date still pending. Filmed during the Winter 2006 tour in Oklahoma City and El Paso, it will be available in DVD, HD-DVD and Blu Ray formats. Additional material includes performances from the Summer 2006 tour, 2005 rehearsal footage, "The Hand That Feeds" and "Only" music videos, and an image gallery. More information, including the complete track listing and a teaser trailer, can be found at nin.com.
[12:20 p.m.] New dates continue to trickle in regarding NIN's European tour scheduled for February 2007. A third show has been added at London's Brixton Academy for 03.10.07 and tickets are currently on sale at www.seetickets.com. A brand new date has been added in Tilburg, Netherlands for 3.16.07 at Club 013. Tickets go on sale 11.25.06 and you can find more information here.
[6:30 a.m.] The long-awaited Goon Moon full length LP is now set to be released in March 2007 on Mike Patton's Ipecac label. No word yet on the title, tracklisting, etc., but I will keep everyone posted. Thanks to Martin Sloan at mastersofreality.co.uk for passing this along.
[5:53 a.m.] Additional tour dates have been added in the following cities: Madrid - 2.15.07; Barcelona - 2.19.07; Manchester - 2.26.07; Birmingham - 3.5.07; Koln - 3.15.07; Berlin - 3.25.07; Vienna - 3.30.07. Not sure about tickets, but I'm sure the information can be found at whichever ticket agencies are selling tickets for the original gigs, and nin.com will likely update as well.
[6:35 a.m.] An additional Glasgow date has been added to NIN's tour itinerary. Tickets for the 3.1.07 date can be purchased here.
[6:37 p.m.]A second date has been added to NIN's appearance at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. According to the venue's official website they are now scheduled to perform on March 22nd as well as the 21st. Click on "more" in the website's upper right hand corner for ticket information.
[7:25 p.m.]When Trent said "soon", he really meant it this time: NIN have announced a full blown European tour commencing February 10, 2007 in Lisbon, Portugal and continuing into early April. Touring is expected to continue thereafter, presumably with dates in the U.S. and other countries being announced. The full list of dates can be found here. The new NIN album is expected to see an April release and, yes -- the touring lineup will remain the same: Jeordie, Josh, Aaron and Alessandro. Information as to ticket sales will be announced shortly.
[1:20 p.m.] A little more info has trickled in regarding UNKLE's newest effort, another project which Jeordie has contributed to. The new material is said to be more rock oriented this time out -- not surprising, considering the artists said to be lending their talents. In addition to those mentioned here a few weeks ago [see 8.20.06 news update], it has also come to light that Eagles of Death Metal's Jesse "The Devil" Hughes and Dave Catching (who has also worked with Jeordie on Goon Moon's 2005 EP and Desert Sessions 9/10) are involved as well. Unfortunately, as with the other projects Jeordie has been working on over the last few months (Goon Moon, Melissa Auf Der Maur), the album will not see a release until sometime in 2007.
[7:15 p.m.] At a recent event coinciding with the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which left much of New Orleans and surrounding gulf coast communities in ruins, Jeordie took time out record a "Rockworks Riff" segment, where he shares his thoughts on Katrina and its aftermath. You can watch the video here. Rockworks is a non-profit disaster relief organization helping to rebuild devastated communities utilizing "the talent and skill of roadies, recording artists and celebrities in cause-related programs to actually do the work, not just raise funds." More information on what they do and how you can help can be found by going to their website at www.rockworks.us or visiting their myspace page at myspace.com/rockworks.
According to a report on mastersofreality.co.uk, Jeordie is one of the featured guests on UNKLE's yet untitled third studio album, which follows up 2003's Never, Never Land. Other collaborators include Chris Goss, Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Brody Dalle (Distillers), Ian Astbury (The Cult) and recent NIN tour openers Autolux. No release information is available at this time. Jeordie most recently worked with UNKLE on two tracks which appear the Goal! soundtrack, released last Fall and available for purchase here.
Two more photos of Jeordie at the Rabin Rogers 5 Year Anniversary Party can be viewed at this location. This site offers a year long membership for $10, which then allows you to order full size, high resolution prints for varying fees, depending on the size print you order. FYI, while a membership will allow you to preview the larger version of the photos as well as purchase them, the preview photos are watermarked.
A couple of photos of Jeordie taken last night at the Rabin Rogers 5 Year Anniversary Party in West Hollywood, CA can be found here (you'll have to scroll down a bit).
Just wanted to apologize for the lack of updates; things have been really quiet since the NIN tour ended last month, and understandably so, given just how long of a tour it was. Have no fear, though -- Jeordie *is* or *will be* doing something...I am just not sure what it is yet. Hopefully, I will have some news to share with everyone, uhm..."soon".
A review of the Irvine show has been added to the Tour Page. Thanks to malg82. Also, you can find a bunch of photos from the NIN tour over at Peter Murphy's official site, including this one of Peter and Jeordie in Indianapolis, where Peter joined NIN onstage to cover Pere Ubu's "Final Solution".
Tour's over, and it's been an amazing run, but now it's time to look forward to what's coming next, which includes the new release from Goon Moon. The album has been mixed and the new stuff is said to be very good -- and very different -- from the EP. More information to come soon...
NIN's official website has been updated with videos of all four songs from Jeordie's pre-show radio performance with Trent, Peter Murphy and Atticus Ross in Boston on June 23rd. Go here to access them. Also, you can find some very high quality photos from last night's performance in Pittsburgh, PA by clicking here. Enjoy!
Here is some updated information I got over at the ETS message boards regarding Jeordie's performance with Trent, Peter Murphy and Atticus Ross this evening. In addition to the live broadcast on WAAF, it will also be rebroadcast later today on both WBCN 104.1 and WFNX 101.7 (Greater Boston area)/92.1 (New Hampshire/Southern Maine). WBCN does not have streaming capabilities but WFNX does. The person who posted at ETS stated that the rebroadcast of the performance will probably be better quality than the live version. If I get anything specific regarding the time of the rebroadcasts, I will post it here.
As some of you are probably aware, the current NIN tour has featured a series of exclusive live radio performances with Trent Reznor and Peter Murphy. Another performance is set for tomorrow evening in Boston and this one will also include Jeordie and Atticus Ross. It appears, from rehearsal footage that was aired briefly on the Spiral yesterday, that Jeordie will be playing guitar while Trent is on bass. If you are attending the Boston show and are a member of the Spiral, you might want to get down to the venue a little earlier on the chance that maybe some Spiral members are let in early to witness the performance (this happened to varying degrees in both Atlanta and Washington DC). If you are not attending the show, you can still listen live by tuning in to WAAF 107.3 or going to waaf.com to listen on line. As a heads up, these performances have been taking place around 5-5:30 p.m. local time.
Ever wonder how Jeordie relieves the boredom of the road and the tediousness of closing out NIN's set night after night after night with "Head Like A Hole"? Take a look here, where Jeordie shows a new artistic bent with stage makeup. FYI, this photo is available for purchase as an 8x10 or 11x14 over at frcphotos.com, where other photos from this same performance show Alessandro apparently giving Marilyn Manson a run for his money in the makeup department. Meanwhile, some photos from NIN's headlining performance at the Sasquatch Festival on 5.26.06 have been added to the NIN Live gallery. Minus the face art. Thanks to RealLowVibe for permission to add these.
A review of NIN's performance at the Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Morrison, CO has been added to the Tour page and can be accessed directly here. Thanks to Squigy for the write up. The Candid gallery has also been updated with a couple of photos from Dallas, TX sent in by Meghan Mitchell.
NIN, in conjunction with Front Row Center, will now be giving fans a chance to purchase exclusive, professionally taken photos from each show on this leg of the tour. The photos, taken by nin.com's Rob Sheridan, will be available at www.frcphotos.com as 8x10's or 11x14's and will usually be up within 24 hours after the show. More info is available at nin.com or the aforementioned frcphotos.com.
Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the KROQ "Breakfast with NIN" show, which was taped yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles, will air on Friday morning on the Kevin & Bean show, which I believe airs from 6:00 a.m-10:00 a.m. For those of you not in the LA area, you can listen on line by going to kroq.com.
I'd also like to remind you guys that NIN will kick off the final leg of their tour on Friday night with a headlining performance at the Sasquatch! Festival in George, WA. As reported last month, a webcast will be available via msn.com, although it is still not clear whether all performances will be shown, or just portions of some, etc. Can't hurt to check it out, though. NIN are expected to take the stage somewhere between 9:30-10:00 p.m.
Los Angeles radio station KROQ will be giving away passes all this week to their exclusive "Breakfast with Nine Inch Nails" show which will be held at a secret location presumably in the LA area. Tickets will not be sold to the general public for this show and you must listen to the radio station for your chances to win. Details can be found at www.kroq.com.
With Nine Inch Nails on a short break from touring, word is that Goon Moon are busy mixing tracks for their full length follow up to last year's EP "I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine". No info on a release date yet but I will be sure to keep everyone updated as more news comes in.
I know this is well in advance of the actual show date, but I wanted to give everyone a heads up that a live webcast of the Sasquatch! Festival, which Nine Inch Nails headlines on May 26th, will be available via this link. I don't know at this point whether or not the entire festival will be shown or if it will be just snippets of various performances. I will remind everyone closer to the date and give more details if I have them. In the meantime, you might want to bookmark the page.
The San Diego Union-Tribune has posted 3 pages of photos from Nine Inch Nails' Las Vegas performance on Saturday night. Go to pages 2 and 3 for photos of Jeordie. A review of the show, if anyone is interested, is also available here.
Dates for the summer leg of Nine Inch Nails' tour, beginning May 26th at the Gorge Ampitheatre in George, WA, have been posted on nin.com's Performance page, along with ticketing information.
Remember Headband, the Jeordie/QOTSA/Amen collaboration which never quite got off the ground? The Angry Brigade over at Amen's refusemusicstore.com has now made available for download mp3's of unreleased Headband tracks, which were recorded during 2003 rehearsals. You have to be a member to have access to the downloads and options are $15.00 for a three month membership or $45 for a 12 month membership. In addition to Jeordie, Headband features Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri (QOTSA), Shannon Larkin (Amen, Godsmack) and Casey Chaos (Amen). Thanks to Richard K. for the link.
The NIN Live and Promo galleries have been updated. Thanks to melodic_soundz for the live shots.
Per an announcement this morning on nin.com, tonight's show in Ottawa is postponed until further notice. More information will be posted in the next few days.
An interview from yesterday's Ottawa Citizen has been added to the Press page. Those of you who still don't believe Jeordie's not on myspace or are convinced you are communicating with him in any way on the internet though you've never even met him, please take note.
For anyone who didn't see the announcement yesterday on nin.com, the Portland, ME show has been rescheduled to June 21st. All tickets for the cancelled performance will be honored for the new date.
This month's Rag Magazine features a great new interview with Jeordie. Click here and go to page 32 to read it. Thanks to randomgirlxxx73 for the heads up.
[9:01 a.m.] Due to ongoing illness, tonight's show in Portland, ME has been cancelled. According nin.com, the date will be rescheduled as a part of NIN's upcoming summer tour and Ticketmaster currently shows a date of June 1st. Tickets for tonight's show will be honored for the new performance.
[8:50 a.m.] Due to illness, tonight's show at the Mullins Center in Amherst, MA is postponed until Friday, March 10th. Tickets for tonight's show will be honored for the rescheduled date. No info yet regarding refunds.
[8:57 a.m.] According to a report in today's Billboard, NIN has been booked to play the Sasquatch Festival at the Gorge Ampitheatre in George, WA (about midway between Seattle and Spokane)on May 26th. Tickets go on sale on March 4th through Ticketmaster. NIN are also heavily rumored to be playing this year's Lollapalooza festival which will be held in Chicago August 4-6.
A rather amusing interview that Jeordie and Aaron did with Nardwuar when NIN stopped in Vancouver a few months ago is now available in mp3 format at this location. Also, I have added a photo from the Green Bay show to the Live gallery. Thanks to Rachel Thurman for the submission.
[8:41 a.m.] If you won't be able to catch NIN on this leg of the tour, you may still have another chance this summer. In a chat conducted via The Spiral fanclub on Friday evening, Trent stated that the band will take to the road once again over the summer, playing outdoor ampitheatres in major U.S. markets. No specific dates are available yet.
[1:00 p.m.] After a well deserved two month break, Jeordie will be hitting the road again later this week with Nine Inch Nails. Starting in Champaign, IL on Friday, February 10th, this tour will cover mostly the secondary markets, wrapping things up April 1st in Las Vegas, NV. Word is that the set list will be a little different this time out, possibly including some stuff yet to be played live. Be sure to check out the Tour Dates page for the complete tour itinerary and ticket information. For those of you going to any of these shows, I will be looking for in-depth reviews and good quality photos to add to the site. You can find contact information for the site here.
It wasn't all playtime for Jeordie during the last two months, however. Chris Goss confirms in an interview published today on billboard.com that he and Jeordie spent some time last week working on material for Goon Moon's debut album. Goon Moon's previously released EP, "I Got a Brand New Egg Layin' Machine" was thrown together at the last minute "just to plant a seed", Goss says, and indicates that there will be more work to come on the full length album, which does not yet have a projected release date. Go here to read the full interview.
[8:22 a.m.] This isn't exactly news on Jeordie, but I feel compelled to mention it anyway because I was so blown away by this artist's performance opening for Nine Inch Nails in San Diego back in November. NIN's official website has now confirmed that Saul Williams will be opening for NIN's upcoming tour from February 27th through April 1st. Some of you will recall that NIN performed a couple of songs with Saul during Voodoo Festival in New Orleans a few months back. You can find out more about Saul by going to his official website. The opener(s) for the first half of the tour will be announced in the next couple of days.
[9:08 a.m.] Jeordie, along with current NIN drummer Josh Freese, attended the premier of the animated film "Live Freaky Die Freaky!" last night in Los Angeles. As some of you may recall, both Jeordie and Josh were on board to lend their voices to the project but subsequently had to withdraw due to touring commitments with A Perfect Circle. The film, directed by John Roecker and produced by Rancid's Tim Armstrong, will hold late night screenings in select cities on January 27 and 28 and will be available on DVD on January 31. For more information, check out the film's official website.
[8:28 a.m.] Another new tour date has been confirmed: NIN will be performing at the Aladdin Theatre in Las Vegas on 4.1.06. Ticket info is TBA.
The NIN Live gallery has been updated with three photos.
[4:01 p.m.] NIN continues to add to their tour schedule, one date at a time. The newest date has them playing the Centurytel Center in Bossier City, LA on 3.25.06. Ticket info is TBA.
