Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has hit out at the America government in the light of the current global climate.
Speaking to Gigwise, the 41-year-old singer says that his futuristic concept album â€˜Year Zeroâ€™ is thematically rooted in the present.
Set 15 years in the future, Reznor said of the record: â€œWhen it came to write the words I really wanted to focus on something that was at the forefront of my consciousness which is, as an American, Iâ€™m appalled by the behaviour of our government and the direction that it has taken and the direction that itâ€™s taken everyone else in the world and its arrogance.â€
He continued: â€œI decided to write an essay about where the world might be if we continue down the path that weâ€™re on with a neo-con-esque government doing whatever it pleases, which seems to be the way it works over here (America).â€
Explaining the concept theme idea, he added: â€œThere are no concepts in the story that arenâ€™t routed in things that already are happening.â€
