Tension Release

nine inch nails live: tension. blu-ray. dvd. digital. spring 2014. The banner at the top of the Tension page on nin.com, where we all first streamed the concert film, has read that for most of this year. Spring is fast advancing into summer, and the last anyone's heard about it has essentially been when that full concert was posted online. Since then, the band's been touring the world, their Austin City Limits performance aired & streamed online, Trent's been creating a soundtrack for Gone Girl, Apple Inc. bought Beats Music, and another North American tour featuring Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, and Death Grips was announced. What of Tension? Here's the latest.

"The Tension release is still coming. We’re working on making it bigger & better, with more content from different shows on the Hesitation Marks tour cycle."

That's a good sign that it has not been relegated to the cold hard drives that store all that Wave Goodbye footage. I understand that more details will be available in the near future. I want to speculate about how it would make a lot of sense to put such a video out around the time the band returns to American venues, but that would just be speculation. Don't worry though - there's no shortage of cool things coming down the pike this year. Stay tuned...
