Nine Inch Nails
Release Date(s): TBA
Trent Reznor made good on his promise to release new Nine Inch Nails music in 2016 by the skin of his teeth, putting out the fuzzy-sounding five-song EP, Not the Actual Events on December 23rd. He's been busy – he also worked on soundtracks for the climate-change doc Before the Flood and Boston-bombing movie Patriots Day – but it was only after the EP release that he revealed just how busy he and partner Atticus Ross have been. They revealed that they'd revamped The Fragile, remastered Nine Inch Nails' catalogue for vinyl and began formulating more new releases. "I'm teeing up the next quote I'll have to live up to, but the idea has been to do two new major [Nine Inch Nails] works come out [in 2017]," Reznor said in an interview with Zane Lowe. He also said he and Ross had been discussing a Nine Inch Nails tour. When Rolling Stone asked about new music in a recent interview, Reznor gave a vague answer: "That will be part of the reveal," he said. "I don't want to spoil it. If I'm interested in a film, I prefer not to watch the trailer. We live in overstimulated times."
