Nine Inch Nails posted two new songs from the forthcoming cd, Year Zero. You can check out "My Violent Heart" and "Survivalism" right here.

According to Trent Reznor, Year Zero is part 1 of a 2 part concept record. The concept? This is what Trent had to say:

What's it about? Well, it takes place about fifteen years in the future. Things are not good. If you imagine a world where greed and power continue to run their likely course, you'll have an idea of the backdrop. The world has reached the breaking point - politically, spiritually and ecologically. Written from various perspectives of people in this world, "year zero" examines various viewpoints set against an impending moment of truth.

How does it sound? You will hear for yourself soon enough, but given the point of this document is to provide information... This record is much more of a "sound collage" than recent efforts from me. A lot of it was improvised.

It is very tedious describing your own music.

It's not just music.

It's probably too long, but it felt like the right thing to do to paint the complete picture.

It will sound different after a few listens.

You can think about it and it will reveal more than you were expecting.

Iggy & the Stooges will be at the Fox Theater on April 13th. According to the band, the internet presale starts this Tuesday morning (February 20th) at 10am. To grab tickets, use this link.
