Nine Inch Nails graced the stage at the Fuji Rocks Festival in Japan this weekend, with a 21-song set-list that included two new tracks from their upcoming album.
In their first show since 2009, the band unveiled the songs “Find My Way” and “Copy of A,” according to NME, along with the recent single “Came Back Haunted” from their upcoming album, Hesitation Marks, which drops September 3.
During the long-awaited concert, NIN mastermind Trent Reznor debuted the final lineup for his backing band, which includes long-time band members Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin, former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Robin Finck, King Crimson’s Andrian Belew, and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv.
Fuji Rocks is just one of many festivals that NIN will hit this summer—like Lollapalooza this weekend in Chicago— in anticipation of their forthcoming American arena tour. Dubbed Tension 2013, the tour will kick off September 28 in St. Paul, Minnesota, reports the band’s website.
What kind of show can we expect from Reznor and company in 2013? In a recent interview with the New York Times, the 48-year-old frontman promised an “elaborate comeback” with “dizzying visual effects” that will only intensify as he “starts out on the stage alone, and the band gradually assembles around him.”
