When Nine Inch Nails auctioned off spare Banjitars and other equipment on eBay recently, many thought the move signaled that the band had not only retired from touring, but were planning a hiatus from releasing new material as well. Not to mention, Trent Reznor has been oddly absent from the Internet of late—save for a few random tweets. We now know, however, that NIN aren’t going to let Radiohead, Arcade Fire, and a slew of other rockers completely pwn 2010 alone.
“Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, I’ve been working on not working for a couple of months, which for me is hard work,” Reznor posted on NIN.com just before Christmas. “2010 has a number of things planned including new material from nine inch nails and something else that isn’t nine inch nails.”
