In late December of 2016, NIN dropped their latest EP, Not the Actual Events, three years after their 2013 Hesitation Marks. With two more releases on the books for this year, we look forward to hearing what the band has been up to during their time off. Nine Inch Nails have confirmed two performances in 2017, marking their triumphant return after a three year hiatus. The industrial rock band will be making two headlining appearances, at FYF Fest in Los Angeles, July 21 – 23, and again the next weekend at Panorama Music Festival in New York City, June 28 – 30. Earlier today, NIN shared an image on their social media pages that confirms the lineup for these upcoming shows.Frontman Trent Reznor will be joined by guitarist Robin Finck, keyboardist Alessandro Cortini, drummer Ilan Rubin, and their newest official member, Atticus Ross.
