It‘s only an odd pairing when you consider their personal history. When you look at their musical history, it makes perfect sense.

Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden officially announced a co-headlining summer tour Saturday night that will bring the bands to Camden. Death Grips will open on most dates. The tour includes a July 30 stop at Camden’s Susquehanna Bank Center.

The announcement comes 20 years after the release of Soundgarden’s ‘Superunknown’ and Nine Inch Nails’ “Downward Spiral,” both breakthrough albums for the rock bands that came out on March 8, 2014 and shot to the top of the charts.

Those releases started a rivalry between those bands that NIN front man Trent Reznor has called a “professional showdown.”

In 2009, Reznor insulted Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell with the following tweet:

“You know that feeling you get when somebody embarrasses themselves so badly YOU feel uncomfortable? Heard Chris Cornell’s record? Jesus.”

The rivalry never became acrimonious, and the two bands have hinted at the tour for the past two weeks.

Nine Inch Nails headlined the second night of Jay-Z’s “Made In America” festival on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway September 1, 2013. Cornell cancelled a performance at the 2012 MIA festival due to a scheduling conflict.
