How To Destroy Angels – “The Believers” & EP Information

If you're not that into the frequently photographed Mariqueen Maandig's singing, "The Believers" just might be the How To Destroy Angels track for you. At least for the first three minutes. After that, she whispers that slinky trip-hop whisper, as heard on previous HTDA outings. This time, though, the music's a bit more Atari… More »

Nine Inch Nails – “Theme For Tetsuo: The Bullet Man”

Trent Reznor is a man of his word: A year after promising the filmmakers behind Tetsuo: The Bullet Man an original song for their film, he sent them this ambient track in February. It's perfect exit music that goes from harsh to beautiful to grand and climactic over its five minutes. The Bullet Man i… More »

How To Destroy Angels – “The Space In Between” Video

"A Drowning" was the first taste from How To Destroy Angels, Trent Reznor's new project with his new wife Mariqueen Maandig, but "The Space In Between" gets the first proper video. First thoughts on the clip? What a terrible honeymoon. Maandig sings, while Reznor and Maandig bleed to death, then catch o… More »

How To Destroy Angels – “A Drowning”

We were introduced to Trent Reznor and wife Mariqueen Maandig's How To Destroy Angels via the birth of a website and a 40-second clip of Maandig playing a Korg MS-20. Now we have a full-on song, "A Drowning," and as the above press photos suggests, Maandig is again the focus. It's seven minutes, icy,… More »

Meet How To Destroy Angels, Trent & Mariqueen’s New Band

Last year Trent Reznor handled his midlife crisis the way most any rational adult would: He quit Web 2.0, dissolved his iconic musical project, got married to the press-photo scene-stealer from West Indian Girl. Textbook midlife crisis stuff. After cleaning out his closet, and making room next to the dresser full of… More »

The 14 Best Band Beefs Of 2009

Maybe it was these tough economic times -- the sinking music industry, everyone downloading shit for free, rising unemployment. Or perhaps folks just are getting stir crazy from lack of fresh air, sitting in front of their laptops/4-tracks while their bodies slowly give way. Whatever the case, bands were super bitchy this year. Some fight… More »

Pearl Jam, R.E.M., NIN Seek Guantanamo Torture Playlist

They've enlisted the NSA to uncover records detailing how loud music is used as an interrogation tactic. Previously unearthed documents suggest NIN, Drowning Pool (they're flattered), and RHCP were blasted along with the Meow Mix jingle. More here. More »

Trent Reznor Donates Reworked NIN Song, Voiceover To Fringe Promo

Now that Nine Inch Nails are done touring, Trent has time for exciting new projects. Like a commercial for the ridiculous pseudo-science drama Fringe? Apparently he refused compensation, just wanting "to have fun and be part of something cool." Watch. More »

Trent Reznor Still Mouthing Off About Chris Cornell

Nine Inch Nails waved goodbye to New York this week with gigs at Bowery, Webster (featuring The Downward Spiral in its entirety), and Terminal 5 (featuring Peter Murphy). Chicago, Toronto, and LA are on deck, and then it's an "indefinite hiatus" for NIN while Trent focuses on QAing Android apps or something. One thing's clear,… More »

Trent Reznor Previews Tour, Disses Prince In Fan Q&A

A few weeks ago, Trent sat for a crowdsourced interview with Digg's Kevin Rose. It looked like a success, but (surprise) NIN fanboys weren't satisfied with the questions. Never one to shy away from interacting with his followers, Trent agreed to answer ten more questions direct from his fan forum (via TwentyFourBit.). More »

Apple Rejects NIN App :( Trent Gets Engaged :)

First the bad news. Only a couple weeks after we told you about Reznor demoing and launching the NIN iPhone App, he's angrily (reasonably so) posting on his webboard about Apple rejecting an update because of its inclusion of "objectionable content," aka 1994's "The Downward Spiral." He calls out the company's hypocrisy, comparing… More »

Reunited Jane’s Addiction Promise Free New Music, Bitter Feuding

We just saw Perry Farrell and his wife practically fuck onstage at Coachella. Things between members of Jane's Addiction aren't as amorous. In a Reuters interview yesterday, the band's frontman says tourmate Trent Reznor tried and failed to mediate after watching JA "explode" on each other in the studio. The silver lining, Perry… More »

Nine Inch Nails, Jane’s Addiction Join Forces On Free Ninja EP

Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction are calling their new working relatinship NINJA. Clever. When photos of Trent hanging out in his studio with Perry Farrell, Eric Avery, Stephen Perkins, and Dave Navarro surfaced last month we suspected more was afoot than a co-headlining victory tour with Street Sweeper. Turns out they laid… More »

You Don’t Win Friends With Timbaland Salad, Chris Cornell

It'll be news to nobody when I say this, but I'll say it anyway: Chris Cornell's Scream is horrible. There are plenty of albums released in a year that aren't so hot, but this goes beyond that to something wrong on so many levels. To put it in an aging rocker context: It makes ChineseMore »

NIN Wave Goodbye With Jane’s Addiction In Tow

Remember those photos of Trent Reznor in the studio with Jane's Addiction? Well, turns out Reznor's taking the guys with him on NIN's last US tour. What?! As he notes, "[I]t's time to make NIN disappear for a while." He chose JA to accompany him on his victory lap because after listening to the… More »

Trent Reznor + Jane’s Addiction = ?

It's unclear what's happening just yet, but photos of Trent hanging out in his studio with Eric Avery, Stephen Perkins, and Dave Navarro have surfaced at nin.com (one with Reznor and a shadowy Perry Farrell is on the main page as we speak). Rolling Stone's Smoking Section has the pic of Trent and… More »

Trent Reznor Is Giving Away Gigabytes Of HD Footage

The holidays are over, but that doesn't mean Trent can't pass along 400+ free gigabytes of unedited HD footage from three December Lights In The Sky shows. He offers the background info and supplies the linkage along with caveats ("...don't expect any instant gratification -- the download may take days, even weeks...") at the official… More »
