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.

Multiple stories surfaced a few days ago proclaiming Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom had broken up. Pretty much right before Thanksgiving BUT photos on Instagram would dispute those claims. Katy and Orlando took IG’s photos of the two enjoying delicious Turkey and Yams with Katy’s family. So if they really did break up, wouldn’t it be highly unlikely they would be breaking bread together? Seems to us like their 10 month relationship is going strong. Gobble Gobble.
Call us naive but we didn’t even know Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas had a little brother. They do and the younger sibling was just busted with some sticky icky in Nashville. The “4th” Jonas Brother, Frankie Jonas is 16 and was busted for possession of marijuana last night. It all went down outside a 7-11. What’s strange is his family has nothing but praise for Frankie and they all say he is a good kid who’s never been in trouble before. Although he’s only 16 he’s already graduated high school and is in college so he’s smart too. Frankie is one lucky kid though because all he got was a ticket and a slap on the wrist thanks to city laws in Nashville.
Following a tragic death, an arrest has finally been made in the death of 3 Doors Down guitarist Matt Roberts. Roberts, just 38 when he died, died from a prescription drug overdose in a hotel just outside of Milwaukee. Roberts served as the lead guitarist of the band from their inception in 1996 until 2012 when he left the band for health reasons.
During his departure, Roberts stated that this was due to performing near 300 dates per year, and the band having exacerbated health and circulation issues that he was currently dealing with. He continued to mention that the band would always hold a special place in his heart, but needed to take this time off for his own health.
Police have now made the arrest of a doctor who was reportedly in connection with Roberts prior to his death. The alleged physician is believed to be from Alabama, a ways away from where his death was confirmed in West Bend, Wisc. Illegal drug distribution has been the primary charge in the case. Throughout his time as physician, Snellgrove (the accused) prescribed Roberts 5 different controlled substances in the names of different individuals, but (police) also have stated that the intended recipient of the drugs were all for Roberts.

Adele might and we stress might be pregnant with number two. At the very least she’s got baby fever. Adele was in Phoenix Monday night and before she wrapped up her North American tour, she decided to share some baby info with her fans. The timing of the new baby is what is in question right now. Although she was sketchy on the timing she’s probably not knocked up just quite yet. She poured champagne for her band and actually sipped on some wine for herself to close out the show. It makes sense she isn’t pregnant yet but trying. Of course Adele’s rep is radio silent but since she’s done touring don’t you think it makes sense?
