Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) has posted on his Facebook the upcoming details for How To Destroy Angels, which include being signed to Columbia Records as well as a new EP entitled An Omen coming out Nov. 13th. The band will also put out other releases through Columbia.

An Omen will be the band’s second EP. Their first is available for free download through their website.

Reznor states, “Sorry for the radio silence lately… I’ve been busy! There’s a number of things to be revealed over the coming months. Some you may expect, others you may not. Patience, my friends.

Today’s news is about my band How To Destroy Angels. 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.

Read on for more information.

Reznor continues, “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.

We are all very excited about you checking out the new stuff. Wish I could tell you more, but you know how this works… it would take all the fun out of it!

    “How to Destroy Angels” is their band name? …….god dammit.

  • we are the strange

    Will it sound like limp outtakes from the last 3 NIN albums like the first HTDA ep did?

    “Some you may expect, others you may not.”

    I certainly didn’t expect Trent to even consider signing with a major label again. I’m guessing he strong-armed the terms of the contract?

    As for “limp outtakes from the last 3 NIN albums”, HTDA isn’t intended to be NIN, and I remember him saying that further releases were going to further deviate from that sound.

    hopefully trent will be more present on the vocals with this EP
