Year Zero Has Arrived

The new Nine Inch Nails album was released last week – and expected to debut on the U.S. charts in No. 1 or No.2 – depending on…     < wait-for-it >    AVRIL LAVIGNE !!     

NINE INCH NAILS could sell more than 200,000 copies of its new album, “Year Zero”, in its first week of release, according to sales tracking by Hits Daily Double.

The disc, which was released on Tuesday (April 17), could enter the Billboard album chart at No. 2 next week, with AVRIL LAVIGNE‘s new offering expected to debut in the top spot.

The last NINE INCH NAILS effort, 2005’s “With Teeth” debuted at No. 1 on the chart with first-week sales of 272,000 copies.

Will have to wait and see.

And – how’s this for the full-on “Year Zero” campaign in full-swing, making me wonder what the Nine Inch Nails “live” experience will be live for ME – in May (next month !)

“Year Zero” is a concept album that takes place in the year 2022, with the U.S. taken over by a religious dictatorship as the world nears environmental and social collapse.

The CD has been the subject of one of the year’s most talked-about marketing campaigns, involving intentionally leaked songs, cryptic voicemails and a maze of eerie web sites.

Meanwhile, a “secret meeting” of NINE INCH NAILS fans as part of the “Art Is Resistance” movement was directed by cellphone calls to an abandoned Los Angeles warehouse on Wednesday night (April 18), where they were treated to a surprise NINE INCH NAILS performance.

The set, however, was stopped after six songs by heavily armed “SWAT-like” troops who raided the location in a “Year Zero”-inspired scenario.  Video of the event is available at OpenSourceResistance.net

Wake up and give a shit !!

On April 18, 2007, Open Source Resistance hosted a gathering in LA.

Musicians, artists, and ordinary people gathered in support of a simple message: speak up to defend the things that matter to you.

The concert planned to end the evening was broken up by police.

If They stop you from speaking, they’re killing freedom. If you just can’t be bothered to speak, freedom will die just the same.

Wake up and give a shit.
