PanARMENIAN.Net - Nine Inch Nails have just announced Cargo In The Blood. The book, which is a collaboration with well known NIN artist Russell Mills, will be a limited edition 320 page book that collects the preview works that Mills has created for the band's 2013 album Hesitation Marks. Mills was also known for his iconic work for 1994's The Downward Spiral.
Each volume will also include a unique and original mixed media painting that was specifically created by Mills for the project. Only 2000 copies will be printed, snd the book will be sold exclusively on nin.com beginning 16 December at 10am PST for $300.
In a press release, Mills says: “Our renewed collaboration on Hesitation Marks very quickly suggested massive potential for the strange and the familiar to collide and collude in works that I hoped would encapsulate, by allusion, suggestion, metaphor and association, the conceptual ideas imbued in the album as well as in the undertow of its sonic world.
“I created a total of 30 pieces for Hesitation Marks and they chose Cargo In The Blood for the cover of the deluxe CD. The title seemed to sum up everything I’ve been working on for the last 5 – 10 years, this whole idea of something that can be carried in the blood and it could be good or bad, something that could be character-building, something that could be destructive, something that could be positive.”
