In Tweet posted in December last year, Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor stated that new music from NIN would be released in 2016 so as we roll into October there is no clear sign of when this new music will become available to fans. Reznor clarified in an Instagram comment thread this week in a report by our buds Consequence of Sound, that “2016 was not over yet”. This would indicate that a follow-up to 2013’s ‘Hesitation Marks’ is still active in some way we are not yet aware of. A new NIN track was reported for a release in mid-September but Reznor denied the reports as rumor on Twitter.
Reznor has been busy though making music, specifically notable film scores including Leonardo DiCaprio’s Between the Flood and Patriot’s Day, the Mark Whalberg film about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
As a lifelong NIN fan, this is a tease of new music is beautiful agony (sounds like a Reznor lyric, doesn’t it?) but let the man do his thing. It is hard for me to recall any Nine Inch album or live performance that disappointed me. @kevkellam
