Trent will play guitar on the above songs that don't already have a guitar player (except Tod's). Charlie will do the drumming and programming.
The live lineup will be basically the same, only with Chris on drums, with Charlie handling triggers and drum kit things.
The first tour will be a US NIN tour co-headlining with Meat Beat Manifesto. Plug will open. Then there will be another nin tour, this one in Europe, with Plug co-headlining and Bentley Rhythm Ace as support. Then Tapeworm will be opening for Rob Halford's band. this is UNCONFIRMED. the only lead on the 'officialness' of this press release is that the email was apparentely from interscope records. it does sound somewhat fishy, and i will try to get a confirmation soon.
