The following news was just announced today by Trent Reznor on Nine Inch Nails’ website:
“I am proud to announce the final personnel lineup of nine inch nails for the foreseeable future. We’ve added, we’ve subtracted and we’ve wound up with unquestionably the strongest lineup I’ve EVER had. Joining me onstage will be Robin Finck, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Freese and Justin Meldal-Johnsen.”
The two most recognizable names in the bunch are Josh Freese (drummer of the Vandals, who has just about played drums for everyone), and the lovable Justin Meldal-Johnsen (aka, JMJ), the man with the fluffy afro who is best known for playing bass for Beck. It’ll be interesting to see his NIN’s stage attire. Tour details will be announced soon.

In keeping with the theme of giving stuff out free this year, Trent Reznor has made available a free sampler CD of the various artists that will be joining NIN on tour.
