Trent Reznor has said that the emergence of new Nine Inch Nails material is drawing ever closer, which is a step up from him just thinking about it, which is where he was at a year ago. Asked by Rolling Stone if he was likely to start working on new Nine Inch Nails material, Reznor said: “All signs point to yes. Yeah, there will be new music. There are some things in the works”.

It seems there might also be some new NIN live shows, despite Reznor swearing off that in 2009 and selling off all the band’s equipment just to be sure. He says now: “Yeah, if it feels right, it’s a possibility [that we’ll play live]. I never said that that 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”.

I’m not sure he really ‘never said never’ about future NIN touring, it all seemed pretty final at the time. But, whatever, let’s talk about the there mentioned How To Destroy Angels, Reznor’s new band with wife Mariqueen Maandig, soundtrack composing buddy Atticus Ross and longtime collaborator Rob Sheridan. Out on Monday, you can hear their ‘An Omen’ EP via Hype Machine here:
