NIN Drummer Does Song For "Demented" Film

Nine Inch Nails drummer Jerome Dillon has contributed a song to an upcoming film by director John Waters ("Pink Flamingos").

Dillon, who launched a tour with NIN last night in Cleveland, penned a song called "Chow" that will run in the closing sequence of Waters' upcoming film, "Cecil B. Demented." The song was written with the intent that it will directly follow the Liberace song "Ciao" from the '70s advertising campaign, "Don't Say Bye, Say Ciao."

The drummer played all instruments on the song, which was co-written by Zoe Poledouris (who also composed the film's score with her father, Basil Poledouris).

"Cecil B. Demented" stars Melanie Griffith and Stephen Dorff and should hit theaters this summer. The film is the story of a crazy independent film director and his renegade group of teenage filmmakers who kidnap an A-list Hollywood actress and force her to star in their underground film.

Meanwhile, Nine Inch Nails is currently out on the "Fragility v2.0" tour with A Perfect Circle, a band featuring Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan and guitarist Billy Howerdel (see "UPDATE: Nine Inch Nails Sets Full "2.0" Tour Schedule"). The outing will play Detroit, Michigan tomorrow night.
