A long-in-the-works Nine Inch Nails side project, Tapeworm, is expected to release its first album in the fall. The group features NIN’s Trent Reznor, Charlie Clouser and Danny Lohne, along with various vocalists. A Perfect Circle and Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan recorded vocals for a track called “Vacant,” which A Perfect Circle has frequently played at their gigs during the past year. Reznor, meanwhile, is wrapping up work on a DVD documenting NIN’s Fragility Tour and has been working up new NIN tracks in his New Orleans studio with The Fragile producer Alan Moulder.
