Nine Inch Nails ‘Self Destruct’ Tour Documentary Posted Online
If you’ve got 75 minutes and love Nine Inch Nails, or more specifically, NIN nostalgia, then pull up a chair. The band has posted the full documentary from their ‘Self Destruct’ tour online for your viewing pleasure.
Clocking in at over an hour, the film documents a tour that ran from 1994 through 1996, and it includes special appearances by both David Bowie and Marilyn Manson. The doc showcases the band at its commercial and critical pinnacle, so a certain energy crackles and buzzes from the screen. The footage was previously available on the ‘Closure’ video from 1997. But now anyone with a keyboard and decent web connection can check it out.
The documentary is just one of several ways NIN are springing back into the public consciousness. Even though mastermind Trent Reznor just released music from his semi-new How to Destroy Angels side project, he’s exhumed NIN, too, confirming that he’s working on new music, as well as hitting the road.
The band has booked tour dates and performances at Reading and Leeds over in the U.K., so Reznor is certainly keeping his plate full. And as you await new NIN material and live appearances, you can revisit their storied past by watching ‘Self-Destruct.’ It’s well worth the hour-plus.
