Trent Reznor Honours The Cure in Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame Induction Speech

By Alex Brown - 1.4.19

Nine Inch Nails creator and overall Industrial Rock God, Trent Reznor has on 30 March made an exceptional speech at the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame induction of legendary The Cure. While Reznor started off on a humorous note regarding the small town life, once he got to talking about the first time he heard The Cure, things too a very touching turn.  

Reznor explained of his first encounter with the fearless music, "A lot of the darkness I felt in my head was coming back at me through the speakers. It was like this music was written just for me." Reznor also spoke about how The Cure inspired him to challenge norms from the inside by creating music about the most complex of human feeling and making them accessible enough to play on the radio. And he earlier on described a feeling all us dark-music lovers resonate with, "I've struggled my whole life feeling like I don't fit ion or belong anywhere... but hearing this, suddenly I felt connected. No longer quite so alone anymore."

Recently The Cure performed in Cape Town and Robert Smith announced on The John Maythem show for Cape Talk that they've just recorded a new album for the first time in 10 years. The album remains untitled as of yet has no release date but will be their 14th studio album.
