Trent Reznor To Unleash New Nine Inch Nails Songs on Hits Collection Prior to Next Album

Michael Buckner, Getty Images It’s always difficult to predict the next move of Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor . Along with his legendary industrial group, Reznor’s discography includes making music with his wife for How to Destroy Angels and creating original scores for feature films. Now, Reznor has officially announced that he is planning to release new Nine Inch Nails songs on an upcoming best-of compilation. In a new feature on Reznor,  New Yorker  magazine [via Spin ] reports the following: ”In 2014, Interscope Records will release an edition of the band’s greatest hits, to which Reznor intends to contribute two new songs. Then he plans to write music for a new record.” In the same article, Reznor talks about his new partnership with hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre and his ‘Beats’ brand. It’s revealed that Reznor has been developing a music streaming project, tentatively titled ‘Daisy.’ The platform aims to help users sort through songs in a way that differentiates it from services like Spotify. “‘Here’s 16 million licensed pieces of music,’ they’ve said, but you’re not stumbling into anything,” says Reznor of the other platforms. “What’s missing is a system that adds a layer of intelligent curation . . . As great as it is to have all this information bombarding you, there’s a real value in trusted filters. It’s like having your own guy when you go into the record store, who knows what you like but can also point you down some paths you wouldn’t necessarily have encountered.” Stay tuned for more news on Reznor and his multitude of projects as news breaks.

Hellyeah, ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ Video – Exclusive Premiere

Eleven Seven Music Hellyeah are a band that have likely never said no to a party invite, so it seems only fitting that they’d write the perfect theme song to accompany any rockin’ affair. In their new video for their anthemic party tune ‘Drink Drank Drunk,’ Hellyeah get up close and personal, taking fans right up onstage with them during one of their summer festival appearances. And Loudwire is proud to bring the party to you with the exclusive premiere of the ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ video (watch below). The mix of onstage antics and crowd debauchery paint a perfect picture of exactly what fans can expect at any Hellyeah show, and drummer Vinne Paul couldn’t agree more. “Our new video for ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ was shot live at Rocklahoma,” remarks the legendary stickman. “It captures the energy and spirit of what Hellyeah and our audience are all about!! Hellyeah!!” That energy and spirit was an integral part of the making of the song ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ too. In a past interview with Loudwire, Vinnie Paul called it their “heaviest party song ever” explaining it as, “Hellagroove, great riffs, everything about it is just us, 100%.” ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ is the newest single from Hellyeah’s latest disc ‘Band of Brothers’ released on July 17. The group is currently out on the road in support of the disc; check out all the remaining tour dates here to get a live taste of ‘Drink Drank Drunk.’ Watch Hellyeah’s ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ Video [Exclusive Premiere] [button href=”” title=”Hellyeah’s Vinnie Paul and Chad Gray Talk ‘Band of Brothers,’ Touring + More” align=”center”]

Bad Brains Unleashing New Album ‘Into the Future’ in November, Streaming Title Track

Paul Hawthorne, Getty Images It has been five years since the last release from the legendary hardcore/punk band Bad Brains , but now they’re coming back with the new album ‘Into the Future,’ which will be released Nov. 20 via Megaforce Records. The title track is now available for streaming (click below to listen). Vocalist H.R. tells  Rolling Stone the music connects the past to the future. “My vocalizing strengthens the impact of the group’s overall deliverance of the music, and the expression of the church of music. The new album wouldn’t be an A-plus new album if it hadn’t been for the earlier music, which was equally as inspirational. And it gets better and better.” Bad Brains produced ‘Into the Future’ themselves after their previous record ‘Build a Nation’ was produced by the late Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch of the Beastie Boys. The band included a remix of ‘Peace Be Unto Thee’ on this album as a tribute to Yauch, their longtime friend and fan. “‘Into The Future’ is the purest Bad Brains recording since the ‘ROIR’ cassette,” says bassist Darryl Jenifer. “This self-produced record shines with a true sense of freedom and musical experimentation, with blends of soulful backgrounds meshed with blistering hardcore and metal riffs, with classic dub.” A documentary about the band, ‘ Bad Brains: A Band in D.C. ‘ was released this year, and is being screened at various film festivals. It will be shown at the Woodstock Film Festival in New York on Oct. 12 and 13. [button href=”” title=”Listen to Bad Brains – ‘Into the Future’ at” align=”center”]
