NINE INCH NAILS mainman Trent Reznor has told StarBulletin.com that the group's current incarnation will disband after the final show of its current tour on Tuesday (September 18) in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Although Reznor's touring band of drummer Josh Freese, guitarist Aaron North, bassist Jeordie White and keyboardist Alessandro Cortini are excellent support players, "at this point, I want to switch things around a bit," he said. "NINE INCH NAILS as a rock band configuration, we've done it and we've done it again. I see other ways I can present the material in concert, more challenging, something new. I don't want it to go stale."

This group has toured together for two years, he said. "It's a well-rounded concert, a good collection of songs from different records."

Much of the buzz surrounding NINE INCH NAILS' latest album, "Year Zero", was created by an imaginative marketing scheme that exploited the Internet to its fullest. "It's the right medium for the content of this record," Reznor explained. "There are too many limitations that record labels use for artists. It's the old business model. With the Internet, everyone's a publisher, and it's kind of liberating to be able to write on my Web site, uncensored, for better or worse."
