NEW YORK (Billboard) - Nine Inch Nails will tour later this year with the reunited Jane's Addiction, NIN frontman Trent Reznor wrote in a post on the band's Web site.

Although he stopped short of saying the band was going on something more than a hiatus, Reznor confirmed that these will be the last NIN shows for some time, and that they will be "much more raw, spontaneous and less scripted" compared with last year's "Lights in the Sky" tour. "It's time to make NIN disappear for a while," he said.

Dates have not yet been announced, but Reznor said the tour will take the bands "across the globe."

The pairing with Jane's Addiction was inspired by NIN's stint on the maiden Lollapalooza tour in 1991, which was headlined by Jane's. The band broke up for the first time shortly thereafter, only to reunite minus original bassist Eric Avery in 1997 and again in 2001.
