Adrian Belew Leaves Nine Inch Nails


It was just this morning that we reported on the new single from Nine Inch Nails that coincided with their expanded tour announcement - but what a difference a day can make. Consequence of Sound broke the news that legendary guitarist Adrian Belew is splitting ways with the band before a live show could even be played.

CoS had reported, Belew wrote on Facebook: “hey folks, before this goes too far let me say this: I greatly respect trent and the music he makes. no one is at fault. we both agreed it just was not working. I’m sorry to disappoint anyone. that really hurts. but NIN will do an amazing show and I am back where I belong: creating FLUX.”.

However, that post has been deleted from Belew's Facebook page and his only statement on the topic that remains is, "concerning me being part of the 2013 Nine Inch Nails band:

it didn't work."

It's been a tumultuous start for Nine Inch Nails who is supposed to be having a big year, booking major festival gigs and touring for the first time since 2009. Jane's Addiction Bassist Eric Avery also announced he was leaving Nine Inch Nails just last month.
