LA Hypno Rockers Autolux are preparing for one of the biggest gigs in their band's short life: being the opening act for Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age in their approaching fall tour. Apparently, Trent Reznor has been a fan of the group for some time:
"There were one or two interviews with Trent Reznor where he talked about us and then soon after that, someone contacted us about the tour. That's what's really nice about it -- it came from him. I think he had two or three bands he wanted to open the tour and we were one of them." [Guitarist Greg Edwards]
Autolux is slated to tour throughout the rest of 2005, with thoughts of writing and recording a new album increasingly creeping into the picture:
"I'm sort of hoping that at the end of this year that we'll be done but then again, it all depends on what happens," Edwards says. "If the record starts taking off more, then there is more pressure to tour. If that happens, wonderful, but if not, wonderful also because that means some time in the next
three or four months we'll get to start working on the next record."
