DVD/VHS/CD Cover Art

nin.com has updated with the cover art for the DVD/VHS/CD.
Also, the release date has officially been pushed back to January 22, 2002 (as previously mentioned) due to production delays in the DVD mastering process.
Thanks to Jeff and noire for the heads up!

Japan DVD update, Euro & Japan CD info

Though the DVD has been pushed back due to manufacturing delays beyond anyone's control, we're still getting a lot of interesting mail as the release approaches.
First order of news, coming Commy of The Perfect Drug, courtesy her readers who sent this in (thanks a bunch to Eridiru, Kajimoto, and Nakko!) In Japan, the CD for And All That Could Have Been is slated for a December 19th release. It is set to have an extra disk, just as the US release is, though there's no specific details as to what is on that disc. All we know is the Japanese HMV magazine did mention that it is set to contain some acoustic NIN tracks.
This ties loosely to more information from Nils about the German release. A reliable source has mentioned that the live CD is due out December 10, though there's still a question as to what the special bonus disk will contain over there as well.
Tying this all together to close this update, the European DVD release date has been confirmed for January 21st, coinciding with Commy's mention that the DVD in Japan has been delayed until January 2002 as well.
Lots of neat stuff coming up! Stay tuned :)

Looking for something to do until And All That Could Have Been hits the street? Rollingstone.com has put together a dandy puzzle you can put back together! Eh, the puzzle will probably take about 2 minutes to complete, but it's NIN related and waiting for new releases can be grueling. =)
Thanks Jennifer

Closure to "Closure"

Andrew has informed us that Amazon.com sent word that the Closure DVD has been cancelled. So whether it's delayed or never to be released -no biggie, we're all waiting for the Official NIN release of And All That Could Have Been Fragility DVD!!

Lapdance...

Ash wrote in with info received from Borders that Spin Magazine will be offering the NIN remix of N.E.R.D's Lapdance (high speed/winmedia download) on a Spin This compilation cd. While the track listing is not currently final and the Borders site does not mention the NIN remix perhaps fans should keep and eye out to see what develops. According to this promo sheet the CD is due out November 20th, but the link to Amazon.com above states that it has been pushed back to December 4th, coinciding with the US release of Nine Inch Nails Live: And All That Could Have Been.

Alice score released

The score for American McGee's video game Alice was released October 16. The original music was composed, arranged and produced by Chris Vrenna. Vrenna is best known by his past work for NIN, but also can be found as a producer and remixer for such artists as The Smashing Pumpkins, Vast, Rasputina and Rob Zombie. His latest project, Tweaker, debuted its album The Attraction to All Things Uncertain last month.

NIN Live DVD/VHS/CD European Release Date

Interesting news from Nils Naegel mit Koepfen! Motor Music, the German label that licenses Nine Inch Nails' releases over there, has informed Nils that all three formats of Nine Inch Nails Live: And All That Could Have Been is slated for a December 3rd release in Germany. This is the first Euro release date we've gotten for the new release, and could very well mean that AATCHB is getting a full release in Europe. When Closure was released in 1997, it did not get a European release at that time, and many worried about if this would get similar treatment. This should satisfy that question :)

The Fragile translated into Russian

I got an email from Quasar, one of the good folks at Perfect Isolation, about a really good Russian translation of The Fragile that he is hosting on his site, The Great Below. How's that for a run-on sentence? Anyhow, the translation was produced by Reptile from St. Petersburg. Pretty cool stuff

Walmart.com still taking preorders of Closure

Since everyone in #nin99 was bugging me to update, and since Theo was nice enough to send in a link, here it is: Walmart.com is still taking preorders of Closure. What is significant is that this page shows a higher resolution scan of the DVD cover. Anal retentive NIN fans will notice that the logo and the font are botched. This is probably one of many of the reasons the DVD was delayed. Save up your money folks, the new video is going to be a lot cooler.

Role of the Mac

In this article, the role of the Mac is discussed in the production of the highly anticipated DVD, which is set for release on December 4th. Stay tuned to nin.com for more details. Here's an excerpt from the article:
Nine Inch Nails noted that the film was shot entirely on Mini DV format and edited exclusively on Macs using Apple's Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro software. All of the audio was edited and assembled on a Mac with Digidesign's Pro Tools software.
