Nine Inch Nails Team up with PETA to stop China's Dog and Cat Fur TradeLucky Visitors to peta2.com Will Walk Away With The Slip Digipaks Signed by Nine Inch Nails

NORFOLK, VA(RUSHPRNEWS)09/27/2008–Nine Inch Nails (NIN) has teamed up with peta2–PETA’s youth arm and one of NIN frontman Trent Reznor’s favorite charities–to give away five autographed limited-edition digipaks of the band’s latest release, The Slip.

There are only 250,000 copies of the digipaks in existence. Each one contains a CD, a DVD with footage of the band rehearsing tracks from the album, a 24-page booklet, and an exclusive sticker pack. The debut single from the album, “Discipline,” marks NIN’s sixth consecutive top 10 single on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks list.

A longtime supporter of peta2, Reznor previously narrated a video exposé about China’s dog- and cat-fur trade. “Every year, millions of cats and dogs are killed for their fur,” says Reznor. The animals’ “weakened bodies are bludgeoned, hanged, bled, or strangled with wire nooses to kill them.” The video, which was sent to fashion designers who still use fur, can be viewed at peta2.com. Visitors to the site can sign up until October 10 for a chance to win The Slip digipaks.

DOGS IN FUR TRADENIN joins an ever-growing list of musicians–including AFI’s Davey Havok, Peaches, Pink, Cobra Starship, The Color Fred, and Fall Out Boy–who have teamed up with PETA to inspire kids to challenge outdated and cruel attitudes about animals. Also featured on peta2.com are celebrity interviews, bulletin boards, merchandise, downloadable screensavers, and chances to win prizes such as free concert tickets, CDs, and more.
