The band released their debut album 'Welcome Oblivion' earlier this year
How To Destroy Angels, the side project of Nine Inch Nails man Trent Reznor, have cancelled their only set shows for the coming months.
The band were due to play the Voodoo Experience festival in New Orleans as well as Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit in North Carolina, but now singer Mariqueen Maandig – who is married to Reznor – has said that due to ‘production conflicts’ the band will no longer play either event. She wrote on Twitter:
we’re very sorry to announce that due to unforeseen production conflicts @destroyangels will be unable to perform at voodoo & mountain oasis

Nine Inch Nails however, will still be playing both events. They start their North American arena tour on September 28 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. At last month’s Reading and Leeds Festivals, Reznor lashed out at both the event’s promoters and Biffy Clyro by claiming they had both “fucked” the band on production. His comments were given short shrift by festival boss Melvin Benn, however, who said: “The truth is there’s no truth in the statement. The contract hasn’t changed since they signed up to it.”
Nine Inch Nails released their new album ‘Hesitation Marks’ on September 3. Produced by Reznor, the album features guest appearances by bassist Pino Palladino, who regularly plays with The Who, and Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. The LP is available in two different versions: a standard, “loud” master, available on CD, iTunes and elsewhere, and an “audiophile” mastering available only to those purchasing any version of the album through the band’s website.
