Still from Nine Inch Nails Tension 2013

After their music, these might be the two things Nine Inch Nails are known for most: Giving away material for free, and touring with light shows that put other bands to shame. Today, they’re showing off a little bit of both. If you missed their 2013 Tension tour, you can now watch an 80-minute concert documentary filmed at their Nov. 8 show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

In addition to showing off their latest mind-boggling light show (it really builds as it goes), the film also features live versions of several songs revamped for the tour.

Here’s the setlist:
“Copy of A”
“March of the Pigs”
“Piggy”
“All Time Low”
“Disappointed”
“Came Back Haunted”
“Sanctified”
“In Two”
“The Big Come Down”
“The Hand That Feeds”
“Head Like a Hole”
“Even Deeper”
“While I'm Still Here”
“Hurt”

If you like what you see, the band says the concert film will be out in Spring 2014 “with tons of extra content, 5.1 surround sound, and more.” (You can also watch a making-of documentary here.) To be notified when it goes on sale, enter your email on the band’s official website.
