Trent Reznor says new Nine Inch Nails release will be treated like an album, tells fan to ‘suck his entire cock’

"Why make it easier to ignore?"

Trent Reznor has declared that the new Nine Inch Nails record ‘Bad Witch’ will be considered as an album, despite its length.

Following on from from 2016’s ‘Not The Actual Events’ and 2017’s ‘Add Violence’ EPs, this month saw NIN announce that the third in the trilogy ‘Bad Witch‘ will be arriving on June 22. However, Reznor has been referring to this upcoming release as an LP rather than an EP.

Reznor explained his thinking, after one fan wrote on the band’s forum:

“I know very well how an album length is and a EP length is. This is an EP.
You can consult every source out that this duration is of an EP.
An album would be 7 tracks at minimum and over 30 minutes.
Fucking hate music industry sometimes.

From what I’ve heard until now, Add Violence ranks #1 to my taste and NTAE ranks #2. This will probably rank a low #3.
The EP must have delayed for obvious reasons… (all apologies, etc) but the real fact is lack of inspiration.
That is the truth I think.”

In response, Reznor wrote under the name ‘teitan‘:

“Want to know why it’s being labelled an LP instead of an EP? EPs show up with singles in Spotify and other streaming services = they get lost easier. EPs feel less important in today’s music-isn’t-as-important-as-it-once-was world. Why make it easier to ignore? We’re not charging any more for it so why get worked up about it? Quantum550: suck my entire cock.”
