According to company CEO John Oakes, “This is only the beginning! Within the coming year, we plan to exponentially expand our artist catalog and device selection. Our customers are active concert goers. We will work closely with our bands and many national tours to have our product be the conduit that creates an exclusive opportunity for our customers—music fans—at live shows."

DiNG will launch summer promotions which will bring fans closer to the bands through meet-and-greets, on-stage and backstage access, as well as VIP front-of-the-line entrance into concert venues. Fans should expect an enhanced concert experience from DiNG.

New NIN On Track To Enter Billboard At No. 2
April 22, 2007
Launch Radio Networks reports: Nine Inch Nails could sell more than 200,000 copies of its new album, 'Year Zero', in its first week of release, according to sales tracking by Hits Daily Double. The disc, which was released on Tuesday (April 17), could enter the Billboard album chart at No. 2 next week, with Avril Lavigne's new offering expected to debut in the top spot. The last Nine Inch Nails effort, 2005's 'With Teeth', did debut at No. 1 on the chart with first-week sales of 272,000 copies.

'Year Zero' is a concept album that takes place in the year 2022, with the U.S. taken over by a religious dictatorship as the world nears environmental and social collapse.

The CD has been the subject of one of the year's most talked-about marketing campaigns, involving intentionally leaked songs, cryptic voicemails and a maze of eerie web sites.

Meanwhile, a "secret meeting" of Nine Inch Nails fans as part of the "Art Is Resistance" movement was directed by cellphone calls to an abandoned Los Angeles warehouse on Wednesday night (April 18 ), where they were treated to a surprise Nine Inch Nails performance. The set, however, was stopped after six songs by heavily armed "SWAT-like" troops who raided the location in a 'Year Zero'-inspired scenario, according to CrowdCtrl.com. Video of the event is available at OpenSourceResistance.net.

Nine Inch Nails To Film Video Next Week
February 1, 2007
Nine Inch Nails is scheduled to film a video for the new track entitled "Survivalism" beginning Monday, February 5 in the Los Angeles area. The song comes off the group's new album, 'Year Zero', which is slated for an April release.

In a recent interview with England's Kerrang! magazine, Reznor described the upcoming CD as "a collage of sound type of thing, not heavy in a metal guitar kind of way." He added, "With this record I feel a lot less concerned about what people think about it especially the dying record industry. I couldn't care less about that right now." Reznor also revealed that the new effort is a concept album and "part of a bigger picture of a number of things I'm working on. Essentially I wrote the soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist."

Reznor said that most of the album was recorded "in hotel rooms around the world on laptops," with very few musicians beside himself and "maybe some surprise vocalists that pop up here and there."

When asked why the new record took less than two years to arrive when the last one took six, Reznor said, "I'm probably as surprised as some fans are (laughs). But really it's just a matter of discipline. When I was on the last tour, to keep myself busy I was just really hunkered down and was working on music the whole time, so this kept me in a creative mode and when I finished the tour I felt like I wasn't tired and wanted to keep at it."

Nine Inch Nails will release a DVD called 'Beside You In Time' on February 27. The disc documents the band's tour in support of 'With Teeth'.

Biography
MEMBERS:
Trent Reznor (vocals/guitar)
Aaron North (guitar)
Jeordie White (bass)
Jerome Dillon (drums)
Allesandro Cortini (keyboards)

Nine Inch Nails, the one-man band of Trent Reznor, brought industrial music to the masses with 1989's Pretty Hate Machine. With its electronic rush, incessant beats, and distorted guitars, the album appeared to be like much industrial music on the surface, yet Reznor wrote pop songs, not the soundtrack to a personal horror movie. NIN's scarred, harsh soundscapes were bleak enough, yet Reznor's lyrics raise the despair and self-loathing to new heights; at times, his relentless darkness can veer dangerously close to self-parody. Pretty Hate Machine wasn't a hit when it was released; it charted in 1990 and stayed on the charts for years afterward. By the time Reznor assembled a band for the first Lollapalooza tour in 1991, the group had a sizable following that only grew with NIN's ferocious performances on the tour. Legal troubles with his record company delayed the release of a second album; in 1992, he released a stop-gap EP, Broken, that was harder and more abrasive than the debut, yet still conformed to conventional song structures; it debuted in the Billboard Top Ten. With their second full-length album, Reznor showed his true roots -- '70s progressive rock. The Downward Spiral was promoted as a concept album, a cohesive piece of work; it also featured ex-King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew. Still, NIN is able to straddle two seemingly opposing genres easily, gaining alternative and mainstream hard rock fans alike; whether he likes it or not, Trent Reznor is the man that made industrial palatable for pop fans. The hit single "Closer" made him an unlikely sex symbol, and audiences eagerly anticipated his third album, 1999's The Fragile, which quickly hit number one and went double-platinum. The fall-2000 remix album Things Falling Apart featured previously unavailable material and several remixes, as well as showcasing work by Adrian Sherwood, Dave Ogilvie, Charlie Clouser, and more.
