To expand the idea of the "Ghosts" project, we're inviting anyone and everyone to create visuals to accompany the album's music. In a few months, we'll be gathering the entries we feel are particularly exceptional and highlighting them. There are no rules to this - be as creative as you like. Create a music video, or a short film, or something completely abstract. Use only one track from the album, or use multiple tracks. Only one caveat: Incorporating copyrighted materials (clips from movies, music by other artists, etc) into your video might limit our ability to feature it in the future. To submit your video, join the Ghosts group HERE and add your video to the group. Good luck, and enjoy.
Click HERE to watch the video of Trent explaining all of this in his own words. Honestly, I couldn't've imagined that the Ghosts project could get any cooler but I suspect that Trent and his crew are going to receive a ton of amazing videos and films (tho, I'm sure, they're bound to get more horrible vids than exemplary vids). I can't wait to see how this venture turns out. [Source]
In other wonderful NIN news, the Tour section of NIN.com has been updated with the first official Nine Inch Nails live North American performance date of the year. According to the site, NIN is scheduled to perform at the Pemberton Festival in Pemberton, British Columbia on July 25. The rumors that NIN will headline Lollapalooza around the same time seem much more likely now. I expect that NIN will also head out on a new US tour at some point later on this year as well.
