Nine Inch Nails are officially back with "Came Back Haunted" single from the upcoming album titled "Hesitation Marks." Listen to the newest song in the player below.
As KROQ reports, the track harkens back to classic NIN, infused with the energy of the band's legendary 1989 debut, "Pretty Hate Machine," bolstered with the epic scope of the 1994 follow-up, "The Downward Spiral."
Buzzing synthesizers and a hard, rolling bass line propel the decidedly industrial rock song, with Reznor's distinctive vocals cutting through the dense maelstrom, screaming "I dont believe it/I had to see it/I came back haunted" throughout the arena-sized chorus.
"I love it," gushed KROQ music director, Lisa Worden. "It's the return of Nine Inch Nails that fans have been waiting for. If this song is any indication, the new album is going to be amazing."
The night before the song's release (June 5), the official Nine Inch Nails tweeted out a message that suggests a September 3 release date for the band's new album, with the title "Hesitation Marks." The tweet also referred to "Halo 28," with Halo numbers being "the numbers assigned to pieces of the Nine Inch Nails discography in the order that they are released." This new upcoming NIN album will be the 28th Halo release (2007 full-length "The Slip" is No. 27).
