Nine Inch Nails announce ‘Add Violence’ EP, share riveting new track ‘Less Than’
Last week Nine Inch Nails‘ frontman Trent Reznor tweeted “NEXT WEEK,” hinting that the group had something looming around the corner for its fans. Today Reznor kept his word and the band’s EP trilogy continues with the deliverance of Add Violence, a five-track EP in the series that began in December with Not the Actual Events.
The new EP will dictate the expansion of the band and incorporate “elements of beauty into the dark dissonance,” per a press release from the group.
“The narrative arc linking the three records begins to emerge through the disassociated lyrics and the provocative and clue-filled cover artwork and accompanying physical component, ” it continued.
The first look at the record,”Less Than,” is now streaming and gives listeners an idea of what type of intersectional arc to expect.
Add Violence is out digitally next Friday, July 21, but will also be available on vinyl and CD September 1. The band’s 2016 Not the Actual Events EP came with a “physical component,” a mysterious black powder whose packaging warned, “This will make a mess.” While it remains to be detailed of what the physical component will be, Add Violence will have one too.
