Nine Inch Nails have announced a surprise performance at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, California on July 19th. It will mark the first live performance from the group since 2014 and will be a warm up gig in preparation for their upcoming headlining set at FYF Fest in Los Angeles.
The band has been surging back into activity since the release of their EP, Not the Actual Events, back in December of 2016, which showcased Trent Reznor and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross continuing to expand the group’s industrial and electronic sound. Nine Inch Nails have also released details for their forthcoming EP ADD VIOLENCE, set to be released on July 21st. The record will be the second in a trilogy of EP releases from the band. The first single off that release, “Less Than,” was recently posted to YouTube in the form of a video game inspired music video. Nine Inch Nails will be headlining a smattering of festival dates throughout the rest of the year but no other tour date announcements have been released yet.
