According to a posting on The NIN Hotline, footage for NINE INCH NAILS' video for "The Hand that Feeds", the first single off their upcoming "With Teeth" CD, was shot this past weekend in Pleasant Hill, San Francisco and Oakland (all in California). The video is being directed by Ian Inaba, from the Guerrilla News Network, who previously directed the video for EMINEM's "Mosh".
One worker on the scene said, "[Trent Reznor] never sounded better. I couldn't help but be totally overcome with energy and excitement when I heard the song for the first time." Another commented, "I'm still wiped out from shooting for this video, but I gotta tell you, it's going to be awesome!"
"With Teeth", is scheduled for release in the U.S on May 3 (one day earlier internationally). The CD, which is said to be "more song-orientated" than 1999's "The Fragile", was recorded in part at Sound City Studio in Van Nuys, Ca., and features a guest appearance on drums by former NIRVANA drummer/current FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl. Mixing duties were handled by Alan Moulder (THE CURE, SMASHING PUMPKINS). The album's first single, "The Hand That Feeds", is expected to go for radio adds during the coming weeks.
