Trent Reznor has some big news about How to Destroy Angels, his project with his wife Mariqueen Maandig and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross. They’ve got a new major-label deal with Columbia, who will release their new An Omen EP on November 13 digitally and on vinyl. It will contain six songs and will be followed by videos as well as live dates. A full-length will be out next spring. Also, longtime Reznor collaborator Rob Sheridan, previously a visual contributor to How to Destroy Angels, is now a full-on member of the band.
From a Facebook post:
Regarding our decision to sign with Columbia, 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.
