Trent Reznor has officially confirmed that his best known project, Nine Inch Nails will return with the follow-up to 2008's The Slip, later this year.
Reznor has revealed that he's been secretly working on the as-yet-untitled new album with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder, last year. The album will be released via Columbia Records.
The full press release by the man himself reads:
"I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. 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 fucking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS 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!"
In related news Trent Reznor recently revealed that band's former guitarist Robin Finck will rejoin the group for their forthcoming tour. "I am proud to announce that the tour lineup now includes the incredible Robin Finck. The addition of Robin to the mix of players I've assembled makes this band incredibly powerful and versatile." He said.
