Adrian Belew Announces Departure from Nine Inch Nails

The day that the new single Came Back Haunted is released is the same day that guitarist Adrian Belew announced his departure from the lineup. I found it difficult to comprehend a NIN tour with two live guitarists as Robin Finck returned to the band after the departure of Jane’s Addiction’s bassist, Eric Avery.

I’m curious to see if Trent and company will seek out a replacement of sorts, as this is the first time out that the lineup consisted of six people instead of five (or four during the Wave Goodbye tour).
