As part of their comeback, which includes new single “Came Back Haunted” and new LP Hesitation Marks, Nine Inch Nails will soon hit the road for the first time in four years. Trent Reznor and Co. will be appearing at summer festivals worldwide before embarking on a fall arena tour. Today, the band mark their live return with a performance at Fuji Rock Festival. Fortunately those without excellent SkyMiles can watch the set in its entirety via YouTube starting at 7:30 a.m. central time.

Update 3: Audio of another song entitled “Copy of A” has surfaced:

Update 2: Footage of a new Hesitation Marks song has emerged. Check out “Find My Way” below.

Update: The stream is not available in the U.S. According to the band’s publicist, “U.S. fans will have to wait until Lollapalooza to see the NIN set.”

According to a recent interview with The New York Times, Reznor indicated that NIN’s current stage setup is quite the elaborate and complex endeavor, featuring “smoke, strobe lights and video screens on wheels”, all of which are precisely choreographed “to avoid collisions and tangled power cords.”

The show is to begin with Reznor alone on stage, as the rest of the band slowly take the stage and form around him. Renzor confessed the visuals and effects — which will change for the fall tour — were inspired by the Talking Heads’ 1983 world tour, as seen in the film Stop Making Sense.

“We’re always pushing the envelope,” Roy Bennet, the band’s lighting and production designer, told NYT. “We’re always trying to make people think and keep them on edge and keep them wondering what’s going on.”

Hesitation Marks is due out September 3rd via Columbia. Consult NIN’s full schedule below.

Pearl Jam First trailer for ‘Pearl Jam Twenty’

Pearl Jam Twenty chronicles the years leading up to the band’s formation, the chaos that ensued soon-after their rise to megastardom, their step back from center stage, and the creation of a trusted circle that would surround them—giving way to a work culture that would sustain them. Told in big themes and bold colors with blistering sound, the film is carved from over 1,200 hours of rarely-seen and never-before seen footage spanning the band’s career. Pearl Jam Twenty is the definitive portrait of Pearl Jam: part concert film, part intimate insider-hang, part testimonial to the power of music and uncompromising artists.
