"Reznor and Ross seem ready to go full-on, carnal Nine Inch Nails again" -SPIN
Nine Inch Nails' new EP, ADD VIOLENCE, is now available digitally to download or stream. Hi-res digital with a limited edition physical component is available exclusively at NIN.com. The five-song collection will be released on CD in September. It is the second in a trilogy of EPs, following 2016's Not The Actual Events.
Hailed by Billboard as "one of rock's greatest live bands," Nine Inch Nails returns to the road with a series of festival dates. The Los Angeles Times named the band as one of the "must-see acts" at FYF Fest in Los Angeles, where Nine Inch Nails will headline the closing day - Sunday, July 23. The band will also top the bill at Panorama in New York City, Riot Fest in Chicago and Aftershock Fest in Sacramento.

Nine Inch Nails' sold-out, July 19 show at Bakersfield's Rabobank Arena marked the band's first live performance since 2014. The Fresno Bee said, "Nine Inch Nails visually stunned - at times, quite literally stunned - with a 75-minute set that was equally stark and minimal...and explosively overwhelming."
"Disconcerting synths, screeching guitars, and Trent Reznor's distinctive snarl: Must be new Nine Inch Nails," said Entertainment Weekly, which praised the new single "LESS THAN" as "another stellar NIN jam that doubles as anxiety-inducing freak-out and alt-rock radio catnip." The New York Times noted, "Its nervous electro pulse and intensifying salvos of guitar noise hark back all the way to the Nine Inch Nails of 'Head Like a Hole' from its 1989 debut album." NPR Music lauded its"cinematic pop sheen" while Noisey observed, "It's upbeat but dark and heavy in that signature NIN way, and Trent Reznor's vocals are as much of an aural razor blade as they've always been."

Rolling Stone heralded "THIS ISN'T THE PLACE," another track from ADD VIOLENCE, as "brooding and unsettling." Consequence of Sound found it "intriguing" and Brooklyn Vegan observed, "It's more proof that there's no telling what moves Trent Reznor & co will pull in 2017."
