Nine Inch Nails and How To Destroy Angels bandmates Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have recorded a cover of the theme for John Carpenter‘s “Halloween.” You can check that out below, and purchase it in digital outlets now.
“I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978.
We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the shit genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads.
John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did.”
Carpenter’s “Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998“ will be released on October 20.

Last night July 19), Nine Inch Nails played their first show in three years at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, CA. During the concert, the band performed a cover of the David Bowie song “I Can’t Give Everything Away.” Trent Reznor told the crowd the following:
“It’s been awhile since we’ve played a show. At the beginning of last year we lost someone who was very important to us, and me personally, David Bowie. We were in the studio kind of messing around, and it felt like we needed to do something, to process it in some way, so we worked on a song of his that gave us some sort of closure. It felt good to us, we didn’t release it, but we’ll play it for you now.”
Interestingly, the band played the “Farewell Mix” of the track, which was posted anonymously on the one year anniversary of “Blackstar.” Nine Inch Nails were rumored to have done that remix, so now it seems the rumors were true.
In other news, the band also played some new songs including: “Branches/Bones” and “Burning Bright (Field On Fire)” from “Not The Actual Events” and “Less Than” and “The Lovers” from “Add Violence.”
Nine Inch Nails have premiered a new song tiled “This Isn’t The Place.” This song is from their new EP “Add Violence,” which will be released digitally on July 21, and on vinyl/CD on September 1. This is the second EP in the band’s ongoing triliogy.
