On Nine Inch Nails' website, www.nin.com , Trent Reznor writes that it might be time to take a break.
On the website, Reznor writes, "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."
It'll be hard to imagine nin being gone for good. Maybe this will be just a temporary haitus instead of one forever.
