Trent Reznor has announced an upcoming release from How To Destroy Angels. Reznor’s remained busy since ceasing touring operations with Nine Inch Nails– having scored David Fincher’s films The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, the former of which earned him and HTDA bandmate Atticus Ross an academy award.
The band released their first self-titled EP in 2010, and has announced that a second EP– entitled An Omen– will come out this November, followed by an as-of-now untitled full length album next year on Columbia Records. This marks Reznor’s first partnership with a major label since his contract with Interscope came to an end in 2007.
Reznor’s wife, Mariqueen Maandig is also in the band. They have partnered with acclaimed art director Rob Sheridan, who will be in charge of How To Destroy Angels’ visual elements. Nine Inch Nails fans may recognize Sheridan as the director of multiple NIN music videos and producer of much of their album artwork. The band has suggested that material from An Omen will appear on next year’s album and that in the meantime they will be performing live, according to Fact Magazine.
No exact dates yet, but watch their 2010 music video for “The Space in Between.” Warning: prepare to be made uncomfortable.
