New Evidence Seems To Suggest Anonymous Maynard James Keenan & Trent Reznor Rape Allegations May Be Hoaxes

According to The PRP, a number of Reddit users have been uncovering evidence that seems to suggest that recent rape allegations made against Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle, etc.) and Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) are hoaxes.

First of all, this whole story started after Keenan made headlines when an accusation of him raping a 17-year-old girl in 2000 surfaced on an anonymous Twitter account. After that, another user apparently replied to the tweet with a similar accusation against Reznor, though that was deleted.

The account that accused Keenan then encouraged other alleged victims to come forward and tweeted out an email address saying people can send their stories there. Reddit users then did some detective work and were allegedly able to connect it to the dating profile of a 23-year-old male. If the accuser’s story was accurate it would have to be a female around the age of 35. It is possible that she could have gotten some help to maintain anonymity, but this information is still worth considering.

On top of this, The PRP also note that the account that accused Reznor was created only about an hour before the account that accused Keenan was created, which seems a bit suspicious.

Aside from that, one Reddit user, who claims to have been to well over 100 Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer shows, also offered a list of backstage practices that seem to contradict the accusation.

Furthermore, the alleged victim has refused to speak to various outlets that have reached out and doesn’t appear to have contacted authorities. Although, if they are telling the truth, it would definitely be understandable if they felt uncomfortable about coming forward.

This whole situation is a bit hazy at the moment, and there is still a chance that it could be true, but for now people may want to reserve judgement until more information surfaces.

Nine Inch Nails Confirmed For 2018 Louder Than Life Festival

Nine Inch Nails have been confirmed for the 2018 Louder Than Life festival. The event will take place at Champions Park in Louisville, KY on September 28-30, and the full lineup will be revealed on June 4.

Nine Inch Nails Premiere New Song “God Break Down The Door”

Nine Inch Nails have premiered a new song titled “God Break Down The Door.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Bad Witch,“ which will be released on June 22.

Trent Reznor told Zane Lowe the following on his Beats 1 show:

“We find if we don’t watch ourselves we tend to try to get somewhere comfortable, because it feels better. And from the sound of the drums to the kind of frantic drumbeat to looking around the studio and seeing the untouched baritone tenor and alto sax that are sitting there. They’re there because they remind me that I can’t play them as well as I used to be able to.

For 20 years, I’ve been saying I’m going to really get my technique back because it would be fun to do. And there they sit taunting me in the corner. We pulled them out and we just started fucking around really, led with Atticus [Ross] arranging. I was just kind of going, an hour performance kind of turned into this thing that felt like we hadn’t been there before and that started to reveal a whole different character.

The space changed and then we felt motivated. When it came time to sing I was really just trying things out, just to see. I never had the courage to sing like that, I didn’t know I could sing like that.”

He also added:

“Let me drop some cryptic information on you. The idea of this three EP thing was all too find truth in us figuring out who we are now and how we fit into the world. The first EP, ‘Not The Actual Events‘, was meant to be from a personal angry self-destructive of reflection on that question and defining how I feel in a world, it feels stranger, part of that’s aging.

Part of that’s because the world is getting weirder. Finding your place in a world that looks different every day little bit changes and reacting to that in the first EP through anger and self-destruction and sitting alone setting a match to your life.

The second EP, ‘Add Violence‘, was meant to the same question. But looking for answers externally. Maybe it’s because of this and there’s comfort in that. Maybe there’s a reason things feel kind of crazy and it’s not that I’m insane that I’m in a situation that’s insane.

There was the third EP which has grown into an LP [‘Bad Witch‘]. It was coming to one final look at that question from rejecting what EP No. two says, and it wasn’t an easy answer… The entire system has a much more bleak and pessimistic outlook and I want to say too much because it gives away kind of the what the thing is.

But it wasn’t necessarily what we thought it was going to be when we started. I thought it was going to go more science fiction. I don’t really want to overwhelm you with cleverness and deep diving and part of that felt like an arms race and it also felt like a cop out.”
