Nine Inch Nails are less than halfway through their Australian tour with Queens of the Stone Age, and Soundgarden are on limited duty due to drummer Matt Cameron's commitment to Pearl Jam - but obviously, they are already making plans to to hook up for a co-headlining tour later this year.

An apparent Live Nation slip let the cat out of the bag late last week:

If that weren't enough, on Friday, both bands posted similar videos on their instagram accounts:

It didn't take long for fans at Echoing the Sound to discover that each frame of each video represented a photo of a concert venue. And strangely enough, each frame corresponded with the same frame in the other band's video. Coincidence? I think not.

If the hint points to a truism, we can expect NIN-Soundgarden dates late summer/earlyfall at the following venues, with the Dallas date already confirmed (?) for August 17th :

Red Rocks Amphitheatre – Morrison, CO
Verizon Wireless Amphitheater – Irvine CA
