“Came Back Haunted” is the name of the new video from Nine Inch Nails, which debuted not long ago. It’s noteworthy for two reasons. First, it was directed by filmmaker David Lynch. Second, the song is from Hesitation Marks, which is the first album from NIN album since 2008’s The Slip. Hesitation Marks is scheduled for release on September 3.

Trent Reznor has described “Came Back Haunted” (which is now available on iTunes) as “familiar, it’s very self-referential and purposely. I think that’s the most like that there is on that record.” And when you hear the song, you can see the sense in that quote.

I won’t spoil the video for you, other than to say that it’s not exactly straight-forward, but it’s David Lynch, so what did you expect? The video comes with this warning: “This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised” Watch it next…



  1. Love the song, but the video just gave me a headache.

  2. Fucking LOVE this song. Some of the vocal lines could be straight off of Pretty Hate Machine.

  3. well, it sounds like NIN, but i’m just not as into their sound as i was when Downward Spiral was released. but NIN diehards should be pretty pleased with this.

  4. Agreed, this album will definitely please most NIN fans. Getting David Lynch to direct the music video was a great idea as well… http://smarturl.it/NINVevo
