Watch Nine Inch Nails’ 2013 tour documentary [Part 1] + Stream new album

NIN

Stream Nine Inch Nails’ new album, Hesitation Marks

Earlier this month, The Moment Factory uploaded a short teaser trailer that highlighted the behind-the-scenes work for Nine Inch Nails’ latest masterpiece of a tour. Now, VEVO has offered up part one of a more expansive documentary that digs deeper into the mind of Trent Reznor and his obsession with creating a new live experience for his fans.

“My goal, if we’re playing a 70 to 90 minute set, is that it’s almost a film,” Reznor explains, “where it starts out one way — not only musically, but visually it evolves into something that keeps your attention, frames the music in a way that feels like a journey from one place to another.”

This particular section of the film focuses on the stress and expectations leading up to their debut performance at this year’s Fuji Rock Festival.

Don’t get too used to this stage setup, though, as following the band’s tour of summer festivals they’ll launch an entirely new production for their North American fall tour. “The fact that we’re doing all this only for these few shows, and then we have to do it over again, throwing all this out to do a completely new thing, with new things that won’t work, that feels a little insane,” Reznor said to The New York Times.

The band’s new album, Hesitation Marks, is due out September 3rd via Columbia (pre-orders are ongoing); stream it now via iTunes. Check out their full tour docket below.
