Nine Inch Nails will not split up entirely, according to founder Trent Reznor.
Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has revealed that the band will not split up, as had previously been thought.
Earlier this month, Reznor claimed that recent gigs were the group's final live shows, sparking speculation that the rock icons are set to vacate the music world.
However, the musician told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that he just meant Nine Inch Nails will break from their relentless touring schedule to work on creating music.
"NIN as a touring live band or live band that's on the road all the time is stopping. I've just reached the point
where it has invaded every other aspect of my life," he revealed.
Reznor told the publication that he will use the opportunity to work on non-musical projects which have been neglected because of touring with the band.
He added that part of the reason he is winding up the live element of Nine Inch Nails is to avoid becoming like Kiss frontman Gene Simmons who has to entertain the group's fans by wearing his trademark make-up "like a clown going to work".
Last week, Nine Inch Nails performed at the T In The Park, playing a set which included hits such as March of The Pigs, I'm Afraid Of Americans, Somewhat Damaged and Head Like A Hole, reported NME.com.
