Nine Inch Nails is considered a pioneer in the industrial music movement and has been highly influential in the evolution of electronic music. Its recordings – which include the multi-Platinum Pretty Hate Machine (1989), Broken (1992) and The Downward Spiral (1994) – have revolutionized detailed digital production. The band has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, released a remarkable series of singles, including the No. 1 Modern Rock radio hits “The Hand That Feeds,” “Only,” “Every Day Is Exactly the Same” and “Survivalism,” and received two GRAMMY® awards. 2013’s Hesitation Marks (Columbia Records) debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts last fall and was named one of the best albums of the year by Rolling Stone, SPIN, Alternative Press, ABC News and The New York Times’ Jon Pareles.  SPIN said, “this is the most important artistic statement from NIN leader Trent Reznor since the late ’90s, when SPIN dubbed him ‘the Most Vital Artist in Music Today.’” Rolling Stone hailed Hesitation Marks as “one of his best” and named the single “Everything” as one of the best songs of 2013. Nine Inch Nails spent the first half of 2014 touring abroad, playing shows in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and Europe. The band recently made its Austin City Limits (ACL) debut, giving an epic, hour-long performance that aired as a preview of ACL’s 40th Anniversary Season and will encore during the upcoming season. www.nin.com

 

Soundgarden are internationally recognized as one of the world’s most influential rock bands. With an exemplary career and GRAMMY®-winning catalog, the Seattle band started a transformation in rock music that inspired a generation. The band is taking to the road on this special co-headlining tour in support of the 20th anniversary reissue of Superunknown, which was released on June 3, 2014 on A&M Records/UME. A gargantuan #1 hit upon its release on March 8, 1994, the album earned the band two GRAMMY® awards for singles “Black Hole Sun” and “Spoonman.” Rolling Stone’s David Fricke expounds: “The best albums define their time, then transcend it. Superunknown is an honest monument to its era and birthplace. Superunknown is also a heavy masterpiece of vision and backbone, a classic of American, progressive hard rock made by a band that, from the start, always aimed higher and farther than its scene, peers and competition.” Selling over 9 million copies worldwide, the album was certified five times platinum by the RIAA in the United States, making it the band’s most commercially successful album – undeniably helping to redefine alternative and hard rock, leaving an indelible mark on the course of music history. The band celebrated the release of the reissue package with a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on June 3rd. Soundgarden will also be performing songs from their acclaimed catalogue, including songs from their additional six albums – Screaming Life (1987), Ultramega OK (1988), Louder Than Love (1989), Badmotorfinger (1991), Down On The Upside (1996) and King Animal (2012). King Animal was met with widespread critical acclaim, debuting as the No. 1 Rock Album in the U.S. The first two singles “Been Away Too Long” and “By Crooked Steps” reached No. 1 on both rock radio formats. www.soundgardenworld.com
