According to Rolling Stone, Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor is promising fans new NIN music in the not-too-distant future.
The unexpected announcement comes three years after Reznor retired the band following a 20th-anniversary farewell tour. While promoting his soundtrack work for the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Reznor said, “All signs point to yes…Yeah, there will be new music. There are some things in the works,” in response to the possibility of new Nine Inch Nails material.
This bit of exciting news comes just days before the release of How to Destroy Angels’ new An Omen EP hits shelves next Tuesday (11/13). How to Destroy Angels, comprised of Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, and composer Atticus Ross, Reznor’s partner for the Oscar-winning score for The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo soundtrack, will be plenty busy in the months ahead. Reznor said, “(A HtDA full-length record) is coming out sometime Quarter One of next year. Music videos will start to creep out pretty soon. You’ll hear about some live performances coming up. That’s going to happen next year.”
Of the possibility of any NIN live shows, Reznor went on to say, “Yeah, if it feels right, it’s a possibility…there will be a place for what falls in the Nine Inch Nails column of things…Stay tuned.” New NIN material would be the first new music under the band’s name since The Slip in 2009.
