Trent Reznor Reveals New Nine Inch Nails Material ‘In the Works’
The news just keeps getting better for fans of Trent Reznor. While he has received many accolades for his soundtrack work over the last couple of years, fans have been longing for the return of Nine Inch Nails. Now comes word from Reznor himself that Nine Inch Nails are definitely back in action and working on new material.
Reznor recently revealed that his How to Destroy Angels project would be arriving with new music, which led to questions about if and when the frontman would revive the band where he made his musical name. The Nine Inch Nails mastermind tells Rolling Stone in a new interview, “All signs point to yes. Yeah, there will be new music. There are some things in the works.”
Not only could fans potentially see a new album or singles, but Reznor, who retired Nine Inch Nails from touring in 2009, revealed that there may be some shows, as well. When asked about the idea of performing, he explained, “Yeah, if it feels right. It’s a possibility. I never said that that wasn’t going to happen, just that it couldn’t go on as it was. Having a few years doing other things, I’ve enjoyed [them] and I’m enjoying doing How to Destroy Angels, and there will be a place for stuff that falls in the Nine Inch Nails column of things. It’s a different kind of work. Stay tuned. We’ll see what happens.”
As for How to Destroy Angels, we know that will come first as they’ve already revealed a Nov. 13 release for the ‘An Omen‘ EP. The group, which also features Reznor’s wife Mariqueen Maandig and his music composing partner Atticus Ross, are also working on a full-length album that will follow early next year.
