Trent Reznor raises the bar again…

Nine Inch Nails have just raised the bar again. I have just finished downloading this in 1080p HD quality (my first 1080p download) and I am very excited about sitting down and watching this. no doubt it will be quality. Please take time to read through the below press release. It really shows how no stone is left unturned and how Trent and his team are far more in touch with consumers and technology than any record label ever will be.


On 5th May, 2008, Nine Inch Nails released “The Slip” for free via their website, as a gift to their fans. Or as Trent Reznor put it: “This one’s on me”.

On December 13th, 2008, dozens of Nine Inch Nails fans recorded the last show ofthe Lights In The Sky tour at Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas.

On January 7th, 2009, over 400Gb of video from the Victoria, Portland and Sacramento shows from the same tour were unofficially released by the band.

By working together, the Nine Inch Nails fan community have created “Another Version of the Truth” – a 3 disc creative commons release bringing together numerous editors, designers, and web programmers to create a professional digital film, followed by a physical release created by fans for fans.


This is part 1: The Gift
Filmed in Sacramento, Portland, and Victoria by the Nine Inch Nails team, and directed, edited, and produced by their fans, The Gift is a stunning work in 1080 High Definition video with 5.1 Surround Sound, multi-language subtitles, and artistically-driven ethics.

The Gift is available in the following formats:

Dual Layer DVD
Standard DVD
Apple TV
Playstation 3/High Def format for computers

This release is available under a Creative Commons license. Do whatever you want with it, as long as it is FREE. The NIN community have a long history of free and open filesharing, but touts, scalpers, and profiteers are NEVER tolerated.

This one is on us. Our time. Our effort. Our Gift to all NIN fans.
