Trent Reznor’s side project How To Destroy Angels to release new EP

Nine Inch Nails man's band have also signed deal with Columbia records

Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor has confirmed that his side project How To Destroy Angels will release a new EP this November.

Pitchfork reports that the band, which is formed of Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig and Atticus Ross, have also signed a deal with major record label Columbia and plan to follow up the six-track release with a full-length album in early 2013.

In a post published on his Facebook account, Reznor wrote: “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.”

Speaking about their decision to sign a major label deal, meanwhile, he added: “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.”

In July of this year, Reznor – who has previously completed the scores for Hollywood blockbusters The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network – said he had a “finished album” he had recorded with How To Destroy Angels and also revealed that he was working on new material for Nine Inch Nails.
