With Trent Reznor’s recent success scoring Hollywood films, many fans may have feared that his other musical projects might be dead, such as How To Destroy Angels. However, Reznor himself went to the blogosphere to ensure fans that his other music projects aren’t dead…including Nine Inch Nails.
In a posting on Nine Inch Nails’ online forum, Reznor had the following to say:
“We’ve been working since last summer on it and are due to mix it this summer for a fall release. We’ve spent a lot of time experimenting and finding our own sound and identity this time around and we’re very happy with the results. The three columns of things I’m currently funneling music into – HTDA, NIN and film work – I believe will start to make more sense to you (and me) as everything unfolds. By having a few different outlets for my work I’m finding more inspiration within each one. No, Nine Inch Nails is not dead and I plan to focus on that next.”
While it should definitely rest fan’s concerns, this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. Probably the big misunderstanding about Nine Inch Nails’ “Wave Goodbye Tour” in the fall of 2009 was that it marked the end of the group as a live band, but not the death of the group itself. In fact, he ensured fans in interviews that he would continue to record new music, just not perform live. Nonetheless, fans should greatly appriciate hearing that his new career in the movies won’t get in the way of new music.
