Nine Inch Nails Return With Bad Witch Plus New North American Tour

Nine Inch Nails To Release New Album Bad Witch And Hit The Road For COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018

When we talk about new music, us industrial rock lovers always hope that it includes Nine Inch Nails. Well, hope no more – Trent Reznor is a man of his word. For the past 30 years, the machine that is NIN has kicked their way through every obstacle the industry has put in front of them. Trent Reznor is more than just an artist, he is also an innovator. Known for constantly evolving and finding ways to adjust to the ever changing climate of the music industry, this is a major factor of how Nine Inch Nails has stuck around so long. All the while staying true to his beliefs and riding against the tide of the perceived “normal” way of doing things.

Now as promised by Reznor himself, the now duo that makes up NIN is back with a new record. For many years, NIN was Reznor until 2016, when Reznor announced longtime collaborator and friend Atticus Ross as an official member of the group. Together the two have worked on film scores together and even previous NIN work. The team of Ross and Reznor released Not The Actual Events in 2016 which they announced would be the first of a Trilogy. Then in July of 2017 we got the second album ADD VIOLENCE. The group is now back with the third and final installment of the trilogy titled Bad Witch. The album will be released on June 22nd, 2018. Bad Witch is now available for pre-order and is available in all formats including exclusive merch bundles available HERE.

New single released today, May 17th.


With the completion of the trilogy also comes some more great news! Nine Inch Nails will embark on the COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE Tour Around North America. The tour is being done a little differently, as an effort by Trent and Atticus to combat ticket scalpers and get tickets directly into the hands of fans. The band will be selling all seats to COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018 in person at The Physical World presale events, taking place May 19th at each venue’s box office, with the exception of Red Rocks for which the presale will take place on May 20th at the Denver Coliseum Box Office.

Nine Inch Nails will launch COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018 on September 13th with the tours support act being The Jesus and Mary Chain. The band will bring their “musical, visual, emotional sensory onslaught,” as hailed by The New York Times, to some of the most iconic venues in the USA – including two-night stands at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (September 18 and 19), New York City’s Radio City Music Hall (October 13 and 14) and the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago (October 25 and 26). It will culminate with four shows at The Palladium in Los Angeles (December 7, 8, 11 and 12).

All seats will be available to purchase in person only, first come, first served. Fans can purchase up to four tickets per show. Visit for a complete list of box office locations and further information. Limited quantities of tickets may be released via additional ticketing channels, subject to availability, at a later date to be announced.
