Trent Renzor confirmed this week that there is a new Nine Inch Nails record being
released this summer. The EP is expected to be the second of a planned trilogy following up the band's five-track 2016 EP, Not The Actual Events.
The project was confirmed in an email last week sent to fans by Renzor.
“DID YOU KNOW THERE’S A NEW TOP-SECRET NINE INCH NAILS EP THAT WILL BE RELEASED BEFORE THE FIRST SHOWS WE DO THIS SUMMER? DID YOU KNOW NOT THE ACTUAL EVENTS WAS THE FIRST PART OF A TRILOGY OF RELATED EPS THAT WILL BE RELEASED ABOUT 6-8 MONTHS APART? NOW YOU DO. MORE INFORMATION ON THIS SHORTLY…
THANK YOU. TRENT”
With NIN's recent focus on film scores and short-length projects, band aficionados have been hopeful for new material.
The EP will be released concurrently with the bands touring schedule. Nine Inch Nails will begin a US festival tour July 21 at the FYF Festival in Los Angeles, California. See more concert dates below:
July 28: Panorama Festival – New York, NY
September 15: Riot Fest – Chicago, IL
October 21: Monster Energy Aftershock – Sacramento, CA
