The EP Trilogy

In Decem­ber 2016 Nine Inch Nails announced and released their first EP Not the Actu­al Events as part of a tril­o­gy, as well as the announce­ment for their sec­ond EP ADD VIOLENCE, which was released in July 2017.
Dur­ing BBC’s inter­view with Nine Inch Nails on Radio 6 Music, the band announced that the third install­ment of their EP Tril­o­gy should be released before the end of June. Dur­ing the inter­view, Trent Reznor and Atti­cus Ross explained why it takes time for them to work on the EP

We start­ed out with a rigid con­cept, hav­ing not writ­ten them all. As we fin­ished Add Vio­lence we found our­selves… it felt too pre­dictable. It felt like we were forc­ing things. Musi­cal­ly and sto­ry­telling-wise. The rea­son this has been delayed is because it took us a while for—what has become the third EP—to reveal itself to us.

Changing the formula

Rather than Nine Inch Nails’ tra­di­tion­al career span, which is to dis­ap­pear for sev­er­al years, make an album, come out and tour for a year to three years in a stretch, burned out, hate each oth­er and repeat the process, Reznor and Ross are exper­i­ment­ing with ways to stay in the mode to always be ready to play and record­ing at the same time. This allows them to spend more time with fam­i­ly and friends as well.
