If feels like it’s been forever since the Nine Inch Nails spinoff project How To Destroy Angels (featuring Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, Atticus Ross, and now Rob Sheridan) released their self titled debut EP. Two years and being left with only a handful of songs and subsequently being put on the back burner for Reznor and Ross’ soundtrack work, but now the band is back with a couple of new releases planned, starting with a new EP this November!

Here’s the announcement made by Trent Reznor via Facebook:

Sorry for the radio silence lately… I’ve been busy! There’s a number of things to be revealed over the coming months. Some you may expect, others you may not. Patience, my friends.

Today’s news is about my band How To Destroy Angels.

I’m happy to announce we’ve formally partnered with Columbia Records for our next series of releases. The first of these will be available in November and it’s called An Omen EP. As you may have guessed, it’s an EP. It contains six songs, some of which are from our full-length LP which is coming early next year.
We are making some videos, we are going to be performing live, and that’s all the details I have for now on those matters.

Regarding our decision to sign with Columbia, we’ve really spent a long time thinking about things and it makes sense for a lot of reasons, including a chance to work with our old friend Mark Williams. There’s a much more granular and rambling answer I could give (and likely will in an interview someplace) but it really comes down to us experimenting and trying new things to see what best serves our needs. Complete independent releasing has its great points but also comes with shortcomings.We are all very excited about you checking out the new stuff. Wish I could tell you more, but you know how this works… it would take all the fun out of it!Stay tuned!

Exciting! The HTDA EP was a great introduction to the group, and I’ve been dying to hear more since. Be on the lookout for their new EP An Omen, which is due out November 13th on Columbia records.
