Trent Reznor 2013 Thrash Hits

Oh, and in addition to Green Day, a whole load of other bands were added to the Reading & Leeds Festivals 2013 line-ups today. Most exciting is the news that Trent Reznor will be bringing Nine Inch Nails to the UK for their first shows since he decided to reform his touring alter-ego. Also joining the bill that (at least vaguely) meet the Thrash Hits remit are City and Colour, The Blackout, Mallory Knox, New Found Glory, Twin Atlantic, Tomahawk and While She Sleeps.

These new additions join a line-up that includes the previously announced headliners Eminem, Biffy Clyro, and Green Day as well as a few other bands (and a fair few that aren’t) of interest to your average Thrash Hits Reader. You want more info? You want to shell out £197.50 (plus fees, parking, camping, and a load of other extras that will push your ticket price above £200 for the weekend)? Well, head on over to either the Reading or Leeds Festival site and you can do both.
