Jonathan Cohen of Billboard.com reports: Nine Inch Nails has drafted goth legends Bauhaus and its new Interscope labelmate TV On The Radio for its summer North American tour. The trek will begin May 27 in Ridgefield, Wash., and will feature 13 subsequent shows with TV On The Radio. Bauhaus will continue as the opening act through the outing's July 8 conclusion in Mountain View, California, in tandem with another group to be announced.

Beforehand, NIN will complete a run of smaller North American markets on a tour that continues on to Greenville, S.C., tomorrow (March 16). As previously reported, the Trent Reznor-led group will also play Miami's Global Gathering Festival on Saturday and the Sasquatch Festival in George, Wash., on May 26.

The group is out in support of its 2005 comeback album, "With Teeth," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 904,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

On April 4, Interscope will issue an EP for new single "Every Day Is Exactly the Same," featuring remixes from Interpol's Carlos D, Photek, El-P, Richard X and the DFA.

As for Bauhaus, which reunited for the 2005 Coachella festival and has been on the road consistently ever since, the group's only post-NIN date at present is an appearance at Germany's M'era Luna Festival, to be held Aug. 12-13.
