NINE INCH NAILS: 'Came Back Haunted' Video Released

"Came Back Haunted", the new video from NINE INCH NAILS, can be seen below. The clip was directed by filmmaker David Lynch. The song comes off "Hesitation Marks", the first NIN album since 2008's "The Slip", which will arrive on September 3. The CD features guest appearances from FLEETWOOD MAC guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and THE WHO touring bassist Pino Palladino.

NINE INCH NAILS mastermind Trent Reznor described "Hesitation Marks" as "much more electronic," although he added that the first single, "Came Back Haunted", is "familiar, it's very self-referential and purposely. I think that's the most like that there is on that record."

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Reznor took to the airwaves of Los Angeles radio station KROQ on Monday (June 24) to discuss "Hesitation Marks", the group's return and the recent departures of guitarist Adrian Belew and bassist Eric Avery from the lineup after just a few months. Reznor said about the latter, "It's been disruptive . . . you can spend a lot of time, like I've done, hypothesizing and imagining and projecting as to what it's going to be like with this chemistry and this recipe of people in a room playing music. And in reality, it rarely is that."

He added, "In the case of a couple people in the band, some switches were made and it's turned into something different . . . It's felt a wrench in the works at time, but at the same time it's made me rethink a lot of how we put this together and I think where we're ending up at a place that's much truer to where NINE INCH NAILS should be and better in the long run."

Asked why he kept the recording of "Hesitation Marks" a secret for a year, Reznor responded, "I still owe Interscope a greatest-hits record. There was talk about doing a couple new tracks for the compilation under the NIN header . . . I started tinkering with a couple songs for NINE INCH NAILS. I felt inspired by what's happening. A couple songs led to a couple more songs and pretty soon it was a full-fledged, 'let's make an album.'"

NINE INCH NAILS has confirmed a lengthy North American tour for the fall, beginning on September 28 in St. Paul, Minnesota. The band will make its live return on July 26 at the Fuji Rock festival in Japan.
