Now that we have solved the mystery of what is How to Destroy Angels, it’s time to learn more about Trent Reznor’s latest project.
Earlier today, someone (likely Mr. Reznor) utilized the band’s Facebook page to answer fan questions. Among the information garnered from the Q&A session? The band’s forthcoming, self-titled EP is the result of “early collaboration… We were going to use all of 2010 to experiment and gestate but liked the early results and decided to share them. Next up is a full LP (tent. early 2011) and then MAYBE some degree of touring.”
Reznor went on to confirm the band’s lineup, which consists of himself, wife Mariqueen Maandig, and frequent Reznor collabortaor Atticus Ross. Peter Christopherson of Coil, the band for which How to Destroy Angels is named after, might also have a role in the band. Explained Reznor, “I obviously ran the name choice by him first and we’ve discussed him contributing to the upcoming material in one form or another.”
When asked how this project differs from Nine Inch Nails, Reznor answered, “…This EP is a very early phase of this project. Yes, it sounds more NIN-ish than I believe it will as we progress. To me, HTDA frees me from some of the constraints I’ve begun to feel (primarily emotionally) in NIN. NIN is not dead and I am about to work on some material that I believe will be quite different than previous NIN very soon.” Basically, good news all around.
