Nine Inch Nails figuratively and literally gave us The Slip in 2008. The free album download with optional deluxe physical releases followed shortly after Radiohead's revolutionary pay-what-you-want gimmick with In Rainbows and was presented by NIN leader Trent Reznor with gratitude to his rabid, longtime fans. Reznor said Nine Inch Nails would go away for a while after a massive 2009 tour, and that would be that.
Five years since The Slip, new music from Nine Inch Nails surfaced today. "Came Back Haunted" serves as warm-up to Hesitation Marks, out September 3rd. Here's a press release from NIN's new record label, Columbia, with more info.
On September 3, Columbia Records will release Hesitation Marks, the new full-length album from Nine Inch Nails. Recorded in secret over the last year, Trent Reznor teamed with producers Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder to create the first new music from Nine Inch Nails in five years.

Todayplans were also unveiled for “Nine Inch Nails: Tension 2013” – afall 2013 North American arena tour. Reznor says, “Tension picks up where Lights in the Sky left off. This is the full-on NIN live experience realized as we never could before.”

Nine Inch Nails within driving distance on Halloween? That's pretty badass.
For the first time ever, an asteroid has been photographed breaking apart in space. NASA's Hubble telescope was able to capture images between October and January showing the asteroid gradually crumbling into 10 smaller pieces.
