Video: Nine Inch Nails, "Came Back Haunted"

Anytime a band that's split gets back together to put out an album, we're always a bit nervous about what the results will be, but everything about Trent Reznor's reformed Nine Inch Nails project has been pretty perfect so far. There's an album, Hesitation Marks, out on September 3, and maybe it's because he basically recreated the band from scratch with a completely different roster of musicians from it's original '80s and '90s incarnation, but the NIN sound these days is somehow entirely in line with how it's always been and simultaneously completely fresh and continuing to push industrial music forward. It's always really been so much about Reznor anyway—he's the driving force, the writer, producer and performer who's been the keystone no matter who was playing with him live or on record. They'll be heading out on an international tour in July, and first single "Came Back Haunted" now has a video from the perfectly complementary collaborator David Lynch (which carries an epilepsy warning!) and it's almost like a shaky, bleary version of the iconic "Closer" clip, with shots of Reznor interspersed with photos of skulls and dissected hearts and clenched teeth. Good to have NIN back. (via Pitchfork)
