Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has stated in an interview with BBC Radio One producer, Zane Lowe, that he plans to spend a good portion of next year on new NIN material.
“I find myself pushed and pulled back into the same routine of album, tour, album, tour, album, tour, while a list of things I’d like to try and do in life sits untouched on the table,” he added, “I plan on spending a good portion of this year coming up writing with [Nine Inch Nails] in mind. Let’s see what happens.”
Despite winding down the band to focus on other projects, including film scores for movies The Social Network, which he won an oscar for, as well as upcoming movie The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Reznor stated earlier this year that his next focus would be on NIN.
From the NIN forums:
“The three columns of things I’m currently funneling music into – HTDA, NIN and film work – I believe will start to make more sense to you (and me) as everything unfolds. By having a few different outlets for my work I’m finding more inspiration within each one. No, Nine Inch Nails is not dead and I plan to focus on that next.”
Nine Inch Nails in its live form played its final show at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles in 2009. The following month, excess touring equipment appeared on eBay.
It’s easy to suspect that any new NIN material might be online download releases and other various material (Video etc.).
