Nine Inch Nails EP trilogy to finish up this summer

Back in 2017 Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails announced that the group’s 2016 EP Not The Actual Events would be the first in a trilogy of EPs, which continued when Add Violence. An ETA for the third EP isn’t etched in stone yet, but Reznor and bandmate/collaboration partner Atticus Ross said during an interview with BBC Radio recently that the third EP would be on the way sometime this summer.

Not The Actual Events and Add Violence were generally well-received upon their release, but per Billboard, Reznor told the BBC the third EP was shaping up to be “too predictable” and that production on the EP slowed down a bit as a result.

“It felt like we were forcing things, musically and storytelling-wise and the whole trajectory,” Reznor said. “The reason this has been a little bit delayed is… it took us a while for what has become the third EP to reveal itself to us.”

Reznor told BBC Radio that he expects the EP to see release before the band plays a June 22 gig at the Meltdown Festival in London.

“We’re in the process of finishing that right now and that should be out before the shows take place,” he said. “It’s not what we expected it to be.”
