It has only been a month since Trent Reznor’s first post-Nine Inch Nails band was cryptically revealed, but How To Destroy Angels have already dropped numerous videos, a Wired iPad app, remix-ready multitracks, and, of course, a free self-titled EP. Well, they’re just getting started: Reznor confirmed today that the trio have a full-length album in the works.
In a question/answer session on Tumblr, Reznor dropped the news: “We are working on a full-length release now. We hope to have it released Q1 2011.” And in response to a subsequent question regarding the EP he made with wife Mariqueen Maandig and longtime co-conspirator Atticus Ross, Reznor elaborated on why they opted to release an initial 6-track collection:
[T]his EP is an artifact of the very first experiments we tried together. We were going to wait until we had a large batch of songs and then distill them down from there, but we liked this first collection and decided to release them. I would expect the next release to sound a bit more focused as we discover more about our combined chemistry.
Needless to say, we’ll definitely be following HTDA on Tumblr for the next six months.
