Trent Reznor announces new How To Destroy Angels albums

Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor has announced via his Facebook page that he is currently actively working on a number of projects; the first of these to see fruition will be the revived How To Destroy Angels, the side project he started with his wife Mariqueen Maandig Reznor, Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan ”“ Reznor has hinted that in the pipeline will be an entire series of How To Destroy Angels albums; he first of which will be available in November and is called “An Omen EP”.

In a surprising change of direction Reznor has signed to multi-national Columbia Records, clearly he knew this would raise a few quizzical comments and has released a (sort of) explanation.

Regarding our decision to sign with Columbia, we’ve really spent a long time thinking about things and it makes sense for a lot of reasons, including a chance to work with our old friend Mark Williams. There’s a much more granular and rambling answer I could give (and likely will in an interview someplace) but it really comes down to us experimenting and trying new things to see what best serves our needs. Complete independent releasing has its great points but also comes with shortcomings.”

The EP to be released on the 13th November will feature 6 tracks, some of which are pulled from the band’s full-length LP which is due in early 2013.

Reznor added that How To Destroy Angels are currently creating some promo videos and are preparing for live dates.

How To Destroy Angels are currently offering a free download of their first now sold out 10” vinyl EP

Phil Newall is from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
