HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS — the brand new project featuring NINE INCH NAILS mainman Trent Reznor and his wife Mariqueen Maandig (ex-WEST INDIAN GIRL) along with frequent NIN collaborator Atticus Ross and NIN‘s longtime graphic designer Rob Sheridan — has inked a deal with Columbia Recordsfor the release of a new EP and full-length album.
HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS‘ second EP, “An Omen EP”, will be made available on November 13 and will contain six songs, some of which will also appear on the upcoming LP, to be issued early next year.
“Regarding our decision to sign with Columbia,” Treznor noted in his Facebook announcement, “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.”
HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS released a self-titled EP in 2010, and covered BRYAN FERRY‘s “Is Your Love Strong Enough?” for the soundtrack to “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” (scored by Reznor and Ross).
