Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden announced during the weekend that the two bands will be heading out on tour. Speculation about the tour began when Spin Magazine asked Soundgarden if the rumors were true during an interview at South By Southwest last week. The band side-stepped the question which typically means that the rumors are true.
This past weekend, the rumors had been confirmed when the bands both announced that the tour was definitely happening. The official announcement is set to happen later today, but the tour dates had already been released when the confirmation had been made.
Nine Inch Nails will be going from one big tour to another. The Trent Reznor-led group are currently wrapping up an Australian tour with Queens of the Stone Age while Soundgarden just finished performing at the inaugural iTunes Festival here in the United Stated during SXSW. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of Nine Inch Nails’ The Downward Spiral and Soundgarden’s Superunknown.
Long live the grunge.
