Eric Avery quits Nine Inch Nails


New bass player needed for Reading and Leeds Festivals.

The musician, who is a founding member of Jane’s Addiction, made his decision public via a post on his Facebook page:

It’s with very mixed emotions I tell you all that I’m pulling out of
NIN. I know. Its been a tough call and I don’t know if it’s the right
one. But I really want to focus on my musical life here in LA, on film
work in particular. As the tour dates kept growing… I just got
overwhelmed. I just got home from a year of heavy travel with Garbage,
the idea of leaving town for another year and a half, and with all the
intensity that Nails demands… fortunately my friend Trent understands
all this and appreciated my pulling the plug now instead of deep into
2013 and 14. Go get ’em gentlemen.

NIN are set to play the Reading and Leeds Festivals this August and a new album is on the horizon too.
