Friday, December 23rd will for sure be an exciting day for Nine Inch Nails fans, as their newest EP will drop worldwide for fans to listen to and download. This will have been the first release from the band since 2013, which was a studio album entitled Hesitation Marks. Cutting it close to the end of the year, this EP comes after a promise made by Trent Reznor that the band would put out new material before the end of the year had come. With eight days left before 2017, Not The Actual Events seems like they’re playing it pretty close to the chest!
The five track EP was recorded by Reznor and Atticus Ross. In addition to being released through a number of modern mediums, the album will also be available via 180-gram one sided vinyl, with pre-orders open via the band’s website. Reznor also goes on to state that the EP tells a story, and that five songs was the absolute perfect length to do so.
Within this release also comes the notion of a limited edition vinyl of the 1999 album The Fragile. This will include 27 tracks, with instrumental and alternative versions of classic songs, as well as a few goodie ‘unreleased’ tracks. This is paired with what Reznor states as mastered audio, recreation of artwork, and some surprises along the way. Many things that won’t be noticed, but mattered to the band above all else.
Not The Actual Events is sure to be a classic album that continues the legacy of NIN, as they’ve continued to produce quality music that traces back to the late 1980’s.

Seeing as it’s been almost 11 years since we’ve seen a Rolling Stones album, it’s only fitting that after their most recent drop “Blue and Lonesome”, another album might be on the way. The first album which only featured covers of other songs has already bolted to, and may hold a spot at #1 in the U.K, as they’ve done multiple times throughout their career. Even more impressive was that Blue & Lonesome was recorded in just three days.
With this one a week old, new information has suggested that the band is looking forward to Volume #2. Keith Richards tells The Guardian that the original album happened by accident, and the bulk of it was recorded in just two days. Also suggested was late keyboard player Ian Stewart was sending a message from above.
With new reports now suggesting that volume 2 is in the works, it leaves a lot up for discussion in terms of the material that may or may not be released. According to the band, they were also recording an entirely new album of material, which would conflict the reports of a second cover album to follow this one. In terms of rock ‘n roll, anything is possible, right?
It should also be noted that Mick Jagger just had his SEVENTH child — no word on if this will affect the band’s ability to create or finish an album.

After a mental breakdown, tons of criticism from his fans and non-fans alike, Kanye West has finally left the hospital, and returned back to his home. Departing from the UCLA Medical Center, ‘Ye left the hospital accompanied by his wife Kim Kardashian. According to recent reports, Kanye will still be under the watchful eye of his physician Michael Farzam, who was the one to call 911 and have West admitted into the hospital. Kanye will be spending this time with his children, family and wife.
There seems to be a ton on the plate of West, who recently cancelled shows for his Saint Pablo Tour indefinitely, as well as a recent album release, and the anniversary of the death of his mother. Additionally, working closely with Adidas, Kanye and their team have been hard at work designing new forms of the Yeezy Boost 350 and 750, which are selling for upwards of $2,000 on secondary markets.
While it’s unclear as to what is the exact cause of Kanye’s original breakdown, there is a clearly a lot of stress on the artist within the past six months. It’s not unheard of to go through hard times and while his departure from the hospital points to good things, there is likely much more time to be spent recovering from this incident than many have speculated.
Our thoughts are with the West/Kardashian family.

It’s been a week and a few days since Kanye West suffered that complete and total breakdown. First by cancelling his show at the L.A. Forum and then the following day, November 21st cancelling his entire tour and then hours later suffering the breakdown where cops were called and he was rushed to the hospital and put on a psych hold. We may now know what caused this. November 21st is the Anniversary of Kanye’s mothers death. If you recall, Donda West died back around that date due to complications from plastic surgery. He increasingly became emotional as that date approached and that along with touring, being a parent and providing emotional support for Kim who was robbed in Paris finally took its toll. He’s also never fully grieved over his mom’s death and has always had problems around this time. For now West remain hospitalized and sedated. There’s no word when he will be released but regardless of your thoughts on him or his music, this was serious and we wish him luck in his recovery.
