Nine Inch Nails perform on June 10, 2014 in Spodek, Katowice, coming to Poland after a few years’ break as they take to the biggest venues in Europe to prove they are once again delivering one of the best live shows on the planet .Their performance follows the release in September 2013 of their critically acclaimed new album Hesitation Marks and tour announcements in the Australia (featuring, among others, Queens of the Stone Age), the UK and the US.
Nine Inch Nails are considered a pioneer in the industrial music movement and have been highly influential in the evolution of electronic music. The band, created by Trent Reznor (the only official member), just released their first album in five years, the critically-acclaimed Hesitation Marks, which Spin called “the most important artistic statement from Reznor since the late 90s” and Rolling Stone hailed “one of his best” in a four-star lead review.
The band debuted in 1989 with its first single “Down In It,” racking up an impressive series of hits over the course of 20 years, from “Head Like a Hole,” “Closer” and “Hurt” (later recorded to much acclaim by Johnny Cash) to "The Hand That Feeds," “Only,” and “Survivalism." NIN’s albums – which include the Platinum-certified Pretty Hate Machine (1989), Broken (1992), The Downward Spiral (1994) and With Teeth (2005) – have revolutionized detailed digital production. Along the way NIN were awarded Grammys for “Wish” and “Happiness in Slavery” and sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Building on their long history of soundtrack work with partner Atticus Ross, became an Oscar-winning composer, with credits including The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
