Those of you that ordered a digital copy of the Nine Inch Nails Not the Actual Events EP are in for a bit of a shock. As noted, the digital download of the record was listed as coming with a "physical component" and finally fans are receiving the stated component in the mail.
A note on the package states, “To be read IN ITS ENTIRETY before opening. Actions have consequences! N.T.A.E. may contain subversive elements that produce feelings of euphoria and may be harmful and unsettling to the consumer. Likewise, this physical package may lead to unrealized expectations or unexpected results upon opening. Caution should be exercised with both. AND THIS IS IMPORTANT… This will make a mess. By opening this envelope in any way, you assume all risks to your person and / or property and waive any claim against the Null Corporation, any of its subsidiaries or affiliated entities from any and all damages or harm you may incur.”
As promised, fans that went ahead and opened the package were left with quite a mess. Inside, black dust was included as well as sheets containing lyrics and images of the band. Check out the images and stay tuned for more news regarding Nine Inch Nails here on AXS.com.
