Seems like the Trent Reznor juggernaut has hit full swing – with the viral marketing around the new “Year Zero” album – due out in mid-April.
Aside from this (more in a sec), there was the release of the Beside You In Time live DVD – in multiple formats DVD, Blu-Ray and HD-DVD.
From what I’ve seen of it, it looks amazing – would be awesome on Blu-Ray (!)
Check out the cover artwork for the album, looking very “alien” – ie. the presence.
And – there’s even a “trailer” for the album – as you would have with a movie – to continue the concept album theme.
There’s now FOUR songs been released (leaked ?) – as well as a few more of the apocalyptic websites popping up :
- Art Is Resistance – sounding like a call-to-arms for the “resistance” movement. Includes some “tools” – which equates to Wallpaper, Icons and PDF’s for printing. Essentially, fan-tools to continue the hype.
- Hollywood In Memoriam – tribute site to when a bomb exploded during the re-carpet arrival of the Oscars – or something similar. Includes a list of “people missing”
Here’s a list of all the known websites, thus far.
As for the new songs (click each link – and scroll down for download of MP3) :
