One of the most prolific bands in recent history, Nine Inch Nails (NIN) made a stop in Middle Tennessee last night with an amazing performance at the FirstBank Amphitheater. After taking a break from touring and Covid-19 lockdowns over, the industrial rock legends were back in full force.
Opening the night was none other than the electronic duo know as Boy Harsher. The duo from Savannah, Georgia consists of vocalist Jae Matthews and producer Austus Miller. Opening for NIN is no small task, but this powerful duo brought the club dance vibe out early, and had the venue prepped and ready for the legendary NIN.
NIN is fronted by singer, songwriter, producer, all-around musical bad ass Trent Reznor. The band also features producer Atticus Ross, whom with Reznor are legends in the musical world, not just for their NIN releases. The duo have written music for many of todays top TV/Box Office hits including HBO’s The Watchmen, Netflix’s Black Mirror, and the 2020’s Walt Disney/Pixar Animation Studios smash hit Soul just to name a few.
The band is currently out on tour to support their 2020 releases Ghosts V: Together and Ghosts VI: Locusts. The band currently has sporadic dates select cities in the US and Great Britain booked through the end of September. Be sure to get out to one of their live shows.
