How To Destroy Angels to release An Omen EP
Trent Reznor made an announcement about his upcoming plans, but it’s not about Nine Inch Nails. Musician’s another project, How To Destroy Angels, will get new chapter this autumn.
How To Destroy Angels is a joint project by Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig and his all-time soundtrack collaborator Atticus Ross. Now, judging by Trent’s post on his Facebook profile, they’re also joined by art-director, designer and photographer Rob Sheridan, who’s been working with Nine Inch Nails for years.
Having signed a contract with Columbia Records, How To Destroy Angels are to release a new EP, An Omen, on November 13. The EP will consist of 6 tracks in total, but the tracklisting isn’t announced yet. The band are also planning to release their debut LP in the beginning of 2013. Here’s what Trent wrote about the new recording and signing with the label:
“Sorry for the radio silence lately… I’ve been busy! There’s a number of things to be revealed over the coming months. Some you may expect, others you may not. Patience, my friends.
Today’s news is about my band How To Destroy Angels. I’m happy to announce we’ve formally partnered with Columbia Records for our next series of releases. The first of these will be available in November and it’s called An Omen EP. As you may have guessed, it’s an EP. It contains six songs, some of which are from our full-length LP which is coming early next year.
We are making some videos, we are going to be performing live, and that’s all the details I have for now on those matters.
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.
We are all very excited about you checking out the new stuff. Wish I could tell you more, but you know how this works… it would take all the fun out of it!
So far, the only release from How To Destroy Angels was their 2010 EP that featured The Space In Between. You may watch its music video below.
