Nine Inch Nails has announced Lostprophets drummer Ilan Rubin to the lineup, who will replace Josh Freese, who is parting with the band at the end of the current North American leg of the tour. Here's the announcement from Trent Reznor:

"With great pride and excitement I announce the addition of Ilan Rubin to the lineup beginning next year. I had the chance to see Ilan playing his ass off at Reading and Leeds a couple summers ago and he blew me away. We recently invited him out to rehearse with us and he blew US away - the perfect guy to pick up the sticks after Josh leaves us at the end of the year.

"Stay tuned for some 2009 tour announcements soon."

why do you always use a photo of the 2005 lineup? only 2 members of these one are still in the band. and Josh Freese is not even at the picture :)

it's been explained many times that the band photo is automatically generated from a warehouse of designated photos. recent news is more important than recent photos

Of all the things you could have at least got JOSH Freese's name correct, how is it that you managed to make such a stupid and careless mistake in the whole two scentences you actually wrote.
Two thumbs up for professionalism "Deathbringer"

then maybe it's time to update your warehouse of designated photos? strange then that it's not from 1994. actually it would be ok too - it would contain two current members as well :D

So much fail about this. At least you spelled Trent Reznor right, though. That's better than most people.

Who cares about a photo? In the end, IF you want it right, just show a photo of Trent. After all, he is NIN
