Industrial rockers Nine Inch Nails have announced the
release of a new album this year. Trent Reznor revealed in a statement that the
band have signed to Columbia Records and their new LP is already finished.
"I've been less than honest about what I've really been up to
lately," Reznor explained. "For the last year, I've been secretly
working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine
Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and, frankly, f**king
great." Nine Inch Nails have already confirmed a tour this summer, taking
in a number of festivals including Reading & Leeds and Voodoo Fest. "This
is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band
and tour again," Reznor added. "My forays into film, HTDA and other
projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on
taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!" Nine Inch Nails' new
lineup features Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Robin Finck and Ilan Rubin.
The band's last album The Slip was released in 2008.
