Trent Reznor’s side project How To Destroy Angels has been in existance since 2010, but so far only has one self-titled EP to its name. Now the post-industrial electronic act has just released a new single titled Keep It Together, which as noted on the band’s Facebook page, has been lifted from the forthcoming EP Omen, due out November 13.
The ‘creative collective’ that is How To Destroy Angels consists of Trent Reznor, the vocal talents of his wife Mariqueen Maandig, composing compadre Atticus Ross (who worked with Reznor on the soundtrack for The Social Network) and art director Rob Sheridan. As reported by Loudwire, Omen will be made up of six new songs and will be released on 12″ vinyl and in digital format, with a debut album expected from How To Destroy Angels sometime early next year.
Reznor recently took to How To Destroy Angels’ Facebook page to explain the band’s recent signing to Columbia and to inform fans to expect some videos and live performances in the future.

Sorry for the radio silence lately… I’ve been busy! There’s a number of things to be revealed over the coming months. Some you may expect, others you may not. Patience, my friends.
Today’s news is about my band How To Destroy Angels. I’m happy to announce we’ve formally partnered with Columbia Records for our next series of releases. The first of these will be available in November and it’s called An Omen EP. As you may have guessed, it’s an EP. It contains six songs, some of which are from our full-length LP which is coming early next year.
We are making some videos, we are going to be performing live, and that’s all the details I have for now on those matters.
Regarding our decision to sign with Columbia, we’ve really spent a long time thinking about things and it makes sense for a lot of reasons, including a chance to work with our old friend Mark Williams. There’s a much more granular and rambling answer I could give (and likely will in an interview someplace) but it really comes down to us experimenting and trying new things to see what best serves our needs. Complete independent releasing has its great points but also comes with shortcomings.
We are all very excited about you checking out the new stuff. Wish I could tell you more, but you know how this works…it would take all the fun out of it!
