Trent Reznor has confirmed that Nine Inch Nails will return this year.

The band's offficial website simply feature the NIN logo surrounded by the words 'nine inch nails twenty thirteen'.

The logo links through to an article on Pitchfork where a statement fromt he frontman is hosted.

"Nine Inch Nails are touring this year," it begins.

"I was working with Adrian Belew on some musical ideas, which led to some discussion on performing, which led to some beard-scratching, which (many steps later) led to the decision to re-think the idea of what Nine Inch Nails could be, and the idea of playing a show. Calls were made to some friends, lots of new ideas were discussed, and a show was booked - which led to another, which somehow led to a lot of shows."

He goes on to add that the line up is made up of Eric Avery, Adrian Belew, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Ilan Rubin, and himself.

"The first shows will begin this summer, followed by a full-on arena tour of the US this fall, and lots of other dates worldwide to follow through 2014."
