Nine Inch Nails to Release New EP Around June1 min read
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.
