launch.com - 01/18/2002

Nine Inch Nails is set to release its first live album and video collection, And All That Could Have Been Tuesday (January 22). The collection is being released in separate video (VHS and DVD) and CD packages. Despite sharing similar track lists, different performances are featured on the audio and the video releases. All the versions include "Terrible Lie," "Sin," "March Of The Pigs," "Piggy," "The Frail," "The Wretched," "Gave Up," "The Great Below," "The Mark Has Been Made," "Wish," "Suck," "Closer," "Head Like A Hole," "Starf--kers Inc," and "Hurt."

The CD has "The Day The World Went Away," which isn't featured on the DVD or the VHS. The DVD and VHS feature the non-CD tracks "La Mer," "Complication," and "Just Like You Imagined."

NIN mastermind Trent Reznor told LAUNCH about the video version of And All That Could Have Been. "A few weeks into the Fragility tour I started realizing that it had all come together quite nicely," he said. "I was proud of the band. I was proud of the set we were playing, and I was proud of the presentation in terms of the set design and lighting and involvement and the presentation of the music. And I thought it would be nice to have some representation or memento of this because a lot of times I feel that when a tour is over, it's gone. It's like words in the wind, it disappears."

Nine Inch Nails is also releasing a companion disc, Still, which will only be available on the CD deluxe-audio package or available for purchase via nin.com. The disc features new tunes and "deconstructed" versions of Nine Inch Nails classics. The track list for Still: "Something I Can Never Have," "Adrift And At Peace," "The Fragile," "The Becoming," "Gone, Still," "The Day The World Went Away," "And All That Could Have Been," "The Persistence Of Loss," and "Leaving Hope."

Reznor will be at New York City's Virgin Megastore in Times Square Tuesday to sign copies of the release. It will be Nine Inch Nails' first-ever in-store.
