Nine Inch Nails May Not Be Dead

A short video was released last week by How To Destroy Angels, a new band that was put together by Trent Reznor and his wife Mariqueen Maandig. Three more videos were released several days ago to give a new glimpse at Trent and Mariqueen’s new project. Also, Atticus Ross has been announced as the third member.

Some fans may consider Mariqueen to be the Yoko Ono of Nine Inch Nails, with a comparison being made to how The Beatles broke up. How To Destroy Angels set up a discussion board on Facebook allowing fans to ask questions, in which members of HTDA may answer. For Nine Inch Nails fans, the following response I found by Trent Reznor to a question on Facebook appears to be good news:

Eliot Jenkins TR: it’s obvious that you’ve wanted to put nine inch nails on hold for a while and try some other things. so, for you, how is this different from nine inch nails (besides the obvious: a different vocalist, a more collaborative work, etc.)? what do you feel you can do now with this band that you couldn’t do with nine inch nails?

Trent Reznor: As stated above, this EP is a very early phase of this project. Yes, it sounds more NIN-ish than I believe it will as we progress. To me, HTDA frees me from some of the constraints I’ve begun to feel (primarily emotionally) in NIN.
NIN is not dead and I am about to work on some material that I believe will be quite different than previous NIN very soon.
