THE NEW REGIME (singer/multi-instrumentalist/Nine Inch Nails drummer ILAN RUBIN) has just released the stems for “Remission Of Guilt,” a new song that’s currently available as a free download on the band’s website ( Fans can remix, upload the song, and enter to win a pair of Ultimate Ears SuperFi5 Pro Dual Armature Earphones while they’re waiting for the follow-up to 2009’s COUP debut album which is slated for early 2011. For more details on the contest go to:

THE NEW REGIME is a “true solo project” of current Nine Inch Nails and former Lostprophets drummer Ilan Rubin. No mere time-keeper, the adept multi-instrumentalist wrote and recorded every note of bass, drums, guitar, piano, keyboards, and vocals on “Remission Of Guilt,” the new album, as well as the 2008 debut, COUP (COMMAND! Music). The as-yet-untitled sophomore release was written and partially recorded while on tour with NIN, while the remaining work was done immediately after the tour was complete.

About “Remission of Guilt,” ILAN says: “I came up with the initial idea for this song at about the halfway point of completing the second album. Since I had a precise vision as to what I wanted the album to be, I finished the idea for this song and recorded it almost immediately after the album was done. ‘Remission of Guilt’ is probably the most aggressive of all the TNR material to date but still retains the clarity of melody, the detail of harmony and structure, and the execution of musicianship.” While the track is not included on the new album, it is a good preview of what’s to come.

The Audio Perv had the chance to catch Nine Inch Nails at Terminal 5 last night for the 3rd NYC show of NIN’s Wave Goodbye Tour. The Horrors opened and they were respectable but kind of forgettable. It was hot, sweaty and packed. NIN came on at around 9:05 and played for about 140 minutes. Peter Murphy from Bauhaus (BLAH!) was introduced by Trent Reznor as the guy who first took NIN on board into NYC many years ago. Murphy kind of scares us and his voice is as appealing as sitting on a pool cue. Anyways, we were in the back but managed to take a few photos and videos. Check ‘em out:

Trent Reznor is everyone’s favorite anarachist. He left his record label, Interscope. He put out his own record and went on a huge tour. The guy’s rich and bored. After some downtime and self-reflection, Trent started jamming with Jane’s Addiction lately and has decided to go on tour with them. He’s also said that this tour will be a send-off for Nine Inch Nails. Do we believe him? Check out the post from below:

Towards the beginning of my career in Nine Inch Nails, our biggest break came in the form of an invitation to perform a series of shows with Jane’s Addiction. These performances essentially created and defined the term “alternative” rock in the US, created an ongoing festival franchise that is still thriving (Lollapalooza), set the stage for Nirvana to shift popular taste a few months later, and were really fucking FUN to play and attend – truly the best times I’ve had. The shows were epic. So epic, they propelled NIN to the “next level” (whatever that means), but caused Jane’s to implode. The band broke up at the end of that tour.

Fast forward to the present. Corporate rock STILL sucks. A friend tells me they saw the original Jane’s lineup play a tiny show in LA that was unbelievable. I break out my Jane’s records and am amazed by how vital they sound. These guys were the real deal and in this current climate mostly dominated by poseurs and pussies it was refreshing to hear something that sounded dangerous, volatile, beautiful and SINCERE.
Emails were sent, phone calls were made, dinner was arranged, ideas were discussed and the next thing I know we’re in the studio experimenting. We laugh, we get to know each other, we cry, we yell, we almost quit, we record LOTS of guitar solos, we discuss, we actually begin to all communicate, we yell some more, we become FRIENDS, we laugh again and we do some great things. I get to see first hand why they broke up all those years ago but I also get the chance to see four distinct personalities that become an INCREDIBLE band when they’re in the same room.

In NIN world, 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of our first releases. I’ve been thinking for some time now it’s time to make NIN disappear for a while. Last year’s “Lights in the Sky” tour was something I’m quite proud of and seems like the culmination of what I could pull off in terms of an elaborate production. It was also quite difficult to pull off technically and physically night after night and left us all a bit dazed. After some thought, we decided to book a last run of shows across the globe this year. The approach to these shows is quite different from last year – much more raw, spontaneous and less scripted. Fun for us and a different way for you to see us and wave goodbye. I reached out to Jane’s to see if they’d want to join us across the US and we all felt it could be a great thing. Will it work? Will it resonate in the marketplace? Who knows. Are there big record label marketing dollars to convince you to attend? Nope.
Does it feel right to us and does it seem like it will be fun for us and you? Yes it does.
Look for tour dates soon and I hope to see you out there.

Apologies first off for taking so damn long to update. The Audio Perv’s been recovering from CMJ and it was very long and taxing. This site will be updated more often and we’ll have even less of a life than we already do. With that out of the way, here’s a Nine Inch Nails show review and videos from their show at the UCF Arena on Tuesday night. From what can be gathered by this review, it’s starting to seem like Trent and his posse can just tour forever and not worry about selling new music. Nine Inch Nails has become the new Phish or Dave Matthews Band of Industrial (yes Trent, I picked one genre for your music. Pissed much?). Btw, Trent loves himself a lot. If you don’t believe me, look at that friggin picture. Check out the videos below:
