Nine Inch Nails have announced a new EP, Bad Witch, and an extensive tour.

The new EP is out June 22, and follows 2016's Not the Actual Events and 2017's Add Violence. You can examine its tracklist below.

The band's fall trek through North America—which the band are calling the Cold and Black Infinite tourwill feature The Jesus and Mary Chain as openers. Notably, tickets for the shows will be sold only in person at venue boxes in what the band are calling "The Physical World Presale."

"The promise of a world made better by computers and online connectivity has failed us in many ways, particularly when it comes to ticketing," the band said in a statement about the policy on their website. "Everything about the process sucks and everyone loses except the reseller. We’ve decided to try something different that will also likely suck, but in a different way. We’re hoping many of you will be happy with the results, while some may do what they always do and bitch about it."

"You (an actual human being) show up at the box office, interact with the ticket seller (another actual human being) and purchase up to four tickets that will actually be handed to you on the spot," the statement continues. "The tickets will not be available online or anywhere else before or during that day. All seats (including the best seats) will be available first come, first serve. You may actually encounter other actual human beings with similar interests likely wearing black clothing during the process and potentially interact with them."
