Trent Reznor has suggested that new material for Nine Inch Nails is "in the works."
In 2009 he had announced that NIN would take a back seat in his career while he worked on film and side projects. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, he hinted that the band that made his name would return but remained tight-lipped about the details.
When asked about the likelihood of new music, he replied: "All signs point to yes." When pressed further, he said "Yeah, there will be new music. There are some things in the works."
He added that NIN could also tour again. "Yeah, if it feels right, it's a possibility," he said. "I never said that [touring] wasn't going to happen, just that it couldn't go on as it was. Having a few years doing other things, I've enjoyed [them] and I'm enjoying doing How to Destroy Angels, and there will be a place for stuff that falls in the Nine Inch Nails column of things. It's a different kind of work. Stay tuned."
Meanwhile, his side-project How To Destroy Angels which features his wife Mariqueen Maandig (recently appearing in Ultimate Guitar's Hottest Rock Wives Top)and Atticus Ross in the lineup will release their "An Omen" EP on November 13, with a full-length album to follow next year. "Music videos will start to creep out pretty soon. You'll hear about some live performances coming up. That's going to happen next year," he said.
Will you try to catch NIN if they hit the road again, or will you be satisfied with new material from his side-project? Let us know in the comments.
