Trent Reznor has revealed that Nine Inch Nails are working on new material.
Shuddering to a halt in 2009, Nine Inch Nails left behind an imposing legacy. Trent Reznor went on to enter the world of award-winning movie soundtracks, but deliberately left the door open for new material with his seminal group.
Now it seems that Nine Inch Nails are stumbling back into life. Chatting to Rolling Stone, Industrial godhead Reznor mentioned that he was working on a number of new projects and that "all signs point to yes" for fresh Nine Inch Nails material.
"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," Reznor told the American magazine. "It's a different kind of work."
No timescale has been given for new Nine Inch Nails material.
For the meantime, fans can soak up new material from Trent Reznor's latest project How To Destroy Angels. 'An Omen' EP is set to drop this month, with a full length set to follow next year. "It's coming out sometime Quarter One of next year," he said.
"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. We're just trying to have fun and try to give it its best shot for people to actually check it out. And that was one of the main reasons we decided to sign with Columbia."
Fans should expect something new from the project. "We've found a cohesion that's not as easily identifiable as the things that made it. It feels like we understand more about what this project is that separates it from various other things that we're up to".
