Nine Inch Nails are to release a new EP this summer to coincide with their planned live dates in the US.
Trent Reznor confirmed the news in an email to fans who have pre-ordered the band’s upcoming vinyl releases.
Reznor says: “Did you know there’s a new top-secret Nine Inch Nails EP that will be released before the first shows we do this summer?
“Did you know Not The Actual Events was the first part of a trilogy of related EPs that will be released about six-eight months apart?
“Now you do. More information on this shortly.”
Not The Actual Events was recorded by Reznor and his long-time collaborator Atticus Ross, with Reznor saying at the time: “It’s an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record that we needed to make.
“It’s an EP because that ended up being the proper length to tell that story.”
A statement announcing the release of Not the Actual Events described it as “an unexpected left turn from 2013’s Hesitation Marks and sounding unrecognisable from their current film work.”
