A new remix of Even Deeper on the Remixes Compiled album by Telefon Tel Aviv has been released. It is available via iTunes digitally or on CD via Hefty Records' website.


The remix namespace is taken offline due to ninremixes.com having a new wiki setup.

April 2007


New Wiki users must be registered for one day and have a valid, confirmed email address to edit.

At 06:14:23 GMT, yearzero.nin.com updated the page to include a link to "resources" [31] This "year zero resources" page included links to ninwiki.com, ETS, and opensourceresistance.net.

The websites presumably inaccessible until the release of Year Zero are now up and running. On Free Rebel Art, a phone call received by submitting information quotes Federal Statute 24.2.1 which corresponds to Free Rebel Art, this is probably the reason for the numbers on all the World of Year Zero pages.

At a meeting in the streets of LA on April 13th, men in a strategically placed van gave everyone ammunition boxes filled with Resistance propaganda (fliers, stencils, buttons, stickers) and some people received boxes with cell phones. The phones had a note: "If you are 18 or over, and will be in the Los Angeles area Wednesday, April 18th we need you. If not, give this hardware to someone else. This phone is your membership card to the resistance. Within the next few days, we will use it to contact you with details of this first resistance meeting. It will get you and one friend through the door. Keep it charged, and keep it with you at all times. Most importantly, there are only 100 minutes on these phones, so use them up and you'll be SOL. We'll be in touch."

Open Source Resistance is updated.

New page found, One Country At A Time.

Two events happened on this day:

  1. Year Zero was leaked today, and is available on various torrent sites, as well as being available for listening in its entirety on the Year Zero website.
  2. A new phone number was discovered today on the back cover of the Year Zero album, below a logo and piracy warning of the United States Bureau of Morality. The number is: 1-866-445-6580, and upon calling you hear a pre-recorded message about your eminent re-education for the possession of illegal materials.

March 2007

Using names and codes found on buttons at the Year Zero listening parties, new 'shards' have been found for The Mailstrom. They're currently being used and tested and a new site has been discovered: here

The lithograph given to those who fore-order Year Zero at the listening parties have a link on them to a website here. On that page a link to here. Using information on the page, another site has been found here. New wiki pages are Mailstrom

An Art Is Resistance flier handed out at the 3/11/07 London show lead to a location underneath a bridge, revealing a large billboard that had operation swamp 0000 written on it. This led to the discovery of a new site here. Clues on the website revealed a new website here. New wiki pages for these sites are: Operation Swamp 0000, and Operation Chip Sweep

Several USB drives given out before the Nine Inch Nails concert in London were revealed to contain both the high-resolution and low-resolution versions of the "Survivalism" video. The video had led to the discovery of three more sites.

Trent Reznor has told Kerrang! magazine he is making the concept of Year Zero into a Movie [32]

A radio leak of "The Beginning of the End" was recorded and put into MP3 format.

February 2007

In the Beside You In Time Blue-Ray booklet, the phrase 'securebroadcastinformatics' appears. Lo and behold, the latest Year Zero Web site: Secure Broadcast Informatics ([33]) which was already discovered and sends you to [34]

I read recently that a radio DJ/program director Alan Cross from 102.1 CFNYFM The Edge in Toronto found a copy of the track "The Good Soldier" on his desk. I wrote him begging to share it if it's true.

update: I got an email back from Alan Cross; he said that he has no idea where that rumor came from. Although even the official website for the radio station he works for mentions his personal review of "The Good Soldier" as being a "Moody, slower. Great grind-y bass synth groove. A natural pick for a single!" which can be found here.

An image found on the USB drive containing "In This Twilight" shows the famous Hollywood sign broken down and the words "In Memoriam" underneath. This led to Hollywood in Memoriam[35].

A hidden link in the lower center part of the Symphony of Noise website revealed and confirmed the album art for Year Zero. It is essentially the same image that was previously released, however it contains "Nine Inch Nails: Year Zero" in the top left hand corner. NOTE: Symphony of Noise is a fan site, so the different cover version is most likely fan art.

New leads are coming in fast and heavy now.

  1. First, after the show in Paris, France, a new site was discovered thanks to a "red flier" that was distributed. The site is Art Is Resistance or http://artisresistance.com.
  2. Then, on the AIR site, there are many links, pages and even some downloads like avatars. All incorporate the "Resistance Logo", which can also be seen on Reznor's latest concert jacket.
  3. A video is posted on [36], showing among other little hidden bits, a video of The Presence.
  4. Finally, the newest news: http://yearzero.nin.com/0024 reveals the album cover for Year Zero.

Currently, there are a few new leads and songs!

  1. U.S. Wiretap, a brand new website that was found as a result of typing in the government agency referred to on:
  2. 12163331810, a new phone number that was found through a spectrograph of file:
  3. 2432.mp3, a file that was included in an USB flash drive that also contained:
  4. Me, I'm Not, the latest leaked song by Trent and co.
  5. In This Twilight, hot off the USB from the Manchester show.
