Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has a release date for the debut EP of his new collaboration How to Destroy Angels.
The act has signed to Columbia Records and will release their debut EP An Omen on November 13.
How to Destroy Angels is a collaboration with Mariqueen Maandig ( Reznor’s wife), Atticus Ross, and Rob Sheridan. Consequence of Sound reports that An Omen will contain six tracks – one of which will be featured on the band’s debut album early next year.
Reznor is known for being critical of major labels in the past – hence why he has self-released a lot of his most recent releases. He explained his decision to sign with Columbia via Facebook:
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.
