Gosh. We almost can’t believe that this is happening!
Trent Reznor, leader of American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, surprised fans by announcing that his band is preparing to make a return to the music scene next year.
The musician made the announcement via Twitter Last Friday (18th December).
New NIN coming in 2016. Other stuff, too.

Reznor has earlier told Rolling Stone in an interview that he was already working on some new stuff. He said:
It’s not a record I’m trying to finish in a month. It’s more just feeling around in the dark and seeing what sounds interesting.
“It’s nice to do that every few years to try and reinvent and discover and try to learn about yourself and what feels exciting to you as an artiste“, he added.
“Hesitation Marks” was the last album released by Nine Inch Nails back in 2013. Reznor collaborated with longtime producer Atticus Ross and English alternative rock producer Alan Moulder on that record.
Titled “Came Back Haunted”, the lead single from the 2013 album was nominated for the “Best Alternative Music Album” at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Reznor was the only official member to have released 8 records which include the revolutionary 1994 record “The Downward Spiral”. His band was also nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for 2 consecutive years in 2014 and 2015.

Earlier this year, Reznor received a Golden Globe nomination for his scoring work with Atticus Ross on “Gone Girl“, a film helmed by his longtime collaborator David Fincher. He will soon work on a “rock opera” interpretation of “Fight Club” alongside Fincher.
The musician has also been busy working as a chief creative director with Apple Music.
