Nine Inch Nails to release new album this year

Trent Reznor’s best-known project has signed to Columbia Records.

According to a press release, the newly reformed Nine Inch Nails is not just a touring entity: the band has signed to Columbia (home to sister project How to destroy angels_) and will release an album later this year. Previously, NIN was rumored to be releasing a new song in June.

“I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately”, explains band leader Trent Reznor. “For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!”

Earlier this year, Reznor reformed his longtime project, bringing King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew, Telefon Tel Aviv’s Josh Eustis, and former NIN touring partners Robin Finck, Alessandro Cortini, and Ilan Rubin into the fold. The band has a series of festival dates planned for the rest of the year, below.

Update: Adrian Belew is now not listed as a NIN member on the group’s Facebook page, so take that how you will [via Antiquiet / Fernando Scoczynski]
