There were a lot of thrilled fans when Trent Reznor revealed that Nine Inch Nails would end their touring retirement to play shows again this year. Now the frontman is talking about the upcoming tour and he reveals there’s a remote possibility for some new material working its way into sets.

The frontman told NME, “There isn’t any new material to play except from a couple of tracks Adrian [Belew] and I started experimenting on that were intended to go on a greatest hits record. We decided to push that back to 2014 and there’s no new record scheduled at this point.”

When asked about what fans can expect from the upcoming trek, Reznor revealed, “The intention is to reconstruct songs based on this new instrumentation and only play songs we as a band feel good about. With Nine Inch Nails last time, I felt that I’d explored that kind of bludgeoning rock thing in a lot of different ways, like I’d done everything I could in that format.”

Nine Inch Nails recently revealed their plans to return to the stage. Reznor will be flanked by returning live lineup members Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin as well as Telefon Tel Aviv’s Josh Eustis, former King Crimson member Adrian Belew and ex-Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery. At present, only five shows have been revealed, including festivals in Japan, South Korea, Germany and the U.K. A North American arena tour is expected this fall.
