Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has been working with David Lynch ever since he produced the soundtrack album for Lynch’s 1997 movie Lost Highway. And on Sunday night’s (June 25) weekly episode of Lynch’s Twin Peaks, Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails put in an appearance, performing at the show’s Bang Bang Bar.
In past weeks, artists like Sharon Van Etten and Chromatics have performed in the show’s venue. And Nine Inch Nails dug deep into the show’s creep vibes, performing the noisy, squalid “She’s Gone Away,” from 2016’s Not the Actual Events EP.
The performance, in front of that red curtain, with the crowd reacting in Lynchian ways, makes for a more effective Nine Inch Nails video than “Came Back Haunted,” the actual Nine Inch Nails video that Lynch directed in 2013.
Check it out below, and be advised that there’s a bit of an episode spoiler at the end of the performance.
