The year 2013 is turning into quite the busy one for drummer Ilan Rubin and he wouldn't have it any other way. The multitalented rocker just released the 'Exhibit A' EP from his own band the New Regime, has returned to the drum kit for the resurrected Nine Inch Nails and has used his spare time to work with Paramore on their album and touring and with Angels & Airwaves on new music, as well.
Nine Inch Nails
On May 15, bassist Eric Avery revealed that he had left the newly resurrected Nine Inch Nails. Avery, a founding member of Jane's Addiction, recently spent a year on the road with Garbage, leaving the musician "overwhelmed" at the prospect of hitting the road again with Nine Inch Nails. Avery's departure left NIN fans deflated, but thankfully, on Trent Reznor's birthday no less, the Nine Inch Nails mastermind has announced the return of classic member Robin Finck.
Nine Inch Nails are just getting back up to speed as they prepare for their run of summer festival shows, but one person who won't be part of the journey will be bassist Eric Avery. The former Jane's Addiction bassist, who was named as part of Trent Reznor's new Nine Inch Nails lineup earlier this year, has bowed out of the band.
Take one modern day pop star (Carly Rae Jepsen) with an incredibly infectious flavor of the year single. Now add in a classic slab of industrial angst-ridden darkness from Mr. Nine Inch Nails himself, Trent Reznor. You might think the results would be combustible, but somehow there's just something about PomDeter's mash-up known as 'Call Me a Hole' that draws us in like a moth to the flame.
It's been a busy year for Corey Taylor, who not only is promoting Stone Sour's upcoming 'House of Gold & Bones Part 2' album, but has also enjoyed some extra recognition for his collaboration with Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen and Scott Reeder on the single 'From Can to Can't' that's part of the soundtrack for Grohl's 'Sound City' documentary. Loudwire recently spoke with Taylor, who revealed that he's thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Grohl and still has a few names on his dream collaborator list.
