Trent Reznor’s new band to release debut album in ‘early 2011’

How To Destroy Angels are currently working on the follow-up to their recent free EP

Trent Reznor has announced that the debut album from his new group How To Destroy Angels should be released in early 2011.

The Nine Inch Nails frontman, who formed the band with his wife Mariqueen Maandig and Atticus Ross, revealed on their blog,, that the band are currently “working on a full-length”, adding that they hope to release it in “Q1 2011”.

Reznor also explained a bit more about the differences between their free self-titled EP and forthcoming album.

“This EP is an artefact of the very first experiments we tried together,” he said. “We were going to wait until we had a large batch of songs and then distil things down from there, but we liked this first collection and decided to release them. I would expect the next release to sound a bit more focused as we discover more about our combined chemistry.”

Available to download via their website,, the EP is also due out on CD on July 6, and will be issued on vinyl at a later date.
