Former Nirvana drummer/current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has spoken to Billboard.com about his previously announced work on the upcoming Nine Inch Nails album, tentatively titled "Bleedthrough." Grohl said NIN leader Trent Reznor called to ask if he would play, and they went into Sound City Studio in Van Nuys, Ca., the next day. "It sounds incredible," Grohl said of the NIN material. "It is [Trent's] first [studio] album in five years. I looked at him and said, 'What have you been doing?'"
As previously reported, Reznor called his collaboration with Grohl "one of the most inspiring and exciting experiences I've had in the studio," adding that Grohl helped the tracks "come alive in a 'better-than-I'd-even-hoped-for' type way."
The follow-up to 1999's "The Fragile", "Bleedthrough" is scheduled for release early next year.
Former NIRVANA/QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE drummer Dave Grohl recorded a guest appearance on drums for the new NINE INCH NAILS album, "Bleedthrough", during a session at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, Ca. this past Friday (July 9).
The follow-up to NINE INCH NAILS' 1999 double album, "The Fragile", is set to feature production contributions from Rick Rubin (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, AUDIOSLAVE, SLAYER), Atticus Ross (12 ROUNDS, TAPEWORM), Jerome Dillon, Leo Herrera, and mix engineer Rich Costey. Among the songtitles set to appear on the CD are "The Line Begins To Blur", "Every Day Is Exactly The Same" and "My Dead Friend". No release date has yet been scheduled.
Word has it that both AFI and KORN have recorded a cover version of NINE INCH NAILS' 'Head Like A Hole'. The former has laid down the track for inclusion on an upcoming video game, whilst KORN have recorded the song for use on their upcoming "Greatest Hits" album, which is due out this Fall.
Hits Daily Double reports: "Jim Guerinot has hammered down a deal to manage NINE INCH NAILS. The Nothing/Interscope band, basically Trent Reznor, chose Rebel Waltz [NO DOUBT, THE OFFSPRING] over finalists Q Prime and John Silva. NINE INCH NAILS' next record, 'Bleed Through', is being produced by Rick Rubin. Trent Reznor has said he wants the record to come out in Q4, though now that he has to take up golf, production may slow down."
In the March issue of Sweden's premiere rock/metal magazine Close-Up, SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison talks about playing the song "The Blister" from the band's upcoming album, "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)", for NINE INCH NAILS mainmain Trent Reznor.
"Me and Greg [Fidelman], our engineer, were sitting at the mixing desk listening to this shit. [Producer Rick] Rubin comes down — this is at his house — with Trent and I shake Trent's hand. Rubin tells Greg, 'Why don't you just play that song, let Trent hear it.' I fucking cranked it up, and right after the song, Trent was like, 'Dude, I gotta go lay down, I feel like a pussy now!' It was awesome! That's Trent Reznor right behind me. It was cool. A really, really humbling experience, the fact that he would say something like that about our new record. He's a lovely guy."
SLIPKNOT's "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" is scheduled for release on May 25 through Roadrunner Records. The band are currently preparing to hit the road as part of the fourth installment of the Jägermeister Music Tour, beginning March 30 in Orlando, Florida. FEAR FACTORY and CHIMAIRA are also onboard for the five-week trek, which wraps up May 14 in Sacramento.
PRONG guitarist/vocalist Tommy Victor has revealed to RollingStone.com that NINE INCH NAILS mastermind Trent Reznor briefly enlisted him for a side project called TAPEWORM that never materialized.
"Actually, that's one of the reasons I threw in the towel for a while," Victor told the magazine. "I was promised so much by that whole camp — not to sound bitter or anything. I went down to New Orleans and worked on some stuff, but I never heard any finished product. But some of that stuff I worked on appeared on some MARILYN MANSON stuff. I was ripped off — that's happened several times."
PRONG have just issued their sixth studio album, "Scorpio Rising", in the U.S. through Locomotive Music.
Upcoming PRONG tour dates:
Mar. 06 - Pinellas Park, FL - Pinellas Expo Center (Sun N' Steel Festival)
Mar. 13 - Irvington, NJ - Cricket Club (March Metal Meltdown VI)
Mar. 20 - Maplewood, MN - First Avenue (Minnesota Metalfest)
In an interview posted today by RollingStone.com with frontman Trent Reznor, he is quoted in saying 'NINE INCH NAILS plan to hit the road in the next few months to preview the new material. "It's been forever since we played," Reznor says. "I'm reenergized right now, my life's in order, and I'm ready to combat the shitty music that's out right now."'
