Crystal Castles Open Up For Nine Inch Nails In Minneapolis

Regardless of whether or not you are fond of Mr. Trent Reznor's musical endeavors, judging by the acts opening for Nine Inch Nails' upcoming tour, you have to give the man credit for having his finger on the pulse of underground music. Check out the openers for NIN's tour:

Deerhunter
Crystal Castles
Does It Offend You, Yeah?
A Place To Bury Strangers
White Williams


Not too shabby! Much like fellow 90s alt-rock giants Pearl Jam, it would seem that Nine Inch Nails like to use their big-level status to help get smaller bands some bigger exposure. And--going out on a limb here--I'm going to guess that's all those two bands have in common (except for playing Lollapalooza. Ah, crap! That's one more thing).

You can head to NIN's website to check out the rest of the dates, which we're assuming will be in support of a new record. We'll find out soon enough on Monday the Fifth, when NIN will make some kind of important announcement on their website. Hmm. Perhaps NIN will pull a themselves...again? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, listen to the new NIN track "Discipline", as well as a track from Crystal Castles, who will be opening for Trent Reznor and Co. on August 2nd at the Target Center in MPLS. No idea when tickets will go on sale, but we'll let you know as soon as we do.

Trent Reznor using the CrysCrap as an opening act is like Obama having Romney as running mate:

they are not stealin nor making money of anyones music (chiptunes). They have sampled from artists such as lobat, but creative commons was given. There may be parts in songs where sampling is used, like in" courtship dating" but everything sampled is approved by the artists.
