Nine Inch Nails Are Back!

Looks like Nine Inch Nails' hiatus is on the Downward Spiral: Three years after announcing a break, the industrial rock band are getting back together. In an interview with Rolling Stone, frontman Trent Reznor said the legendary industrial metal group are working on a new album.

"Yeah, there will be new music," said Reznor (who also dished on his soundtrack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II). "There are some things in the works."

Reznor also said NIN might tour again soon. "Yeah, if it feels right, it's a possibility," he explained. "Stay tuned. We'll see what happens here."

Nine Inch Nails were never in danger of permanent dissolution, said Reznor, but a change was necessary: "I never said that [touring or new music] wasn't going to happen, just that it couldn't go on as it was. Having a few years doing other things, I've enjoyed [them] and I'm enjoying doing [side project] How to Destroy Angels, and there will be a place for stuff that falls in the Nine Inch Nails column of things. It's a different kind of work."

Good news! Especially if you haven't seen NIN live; their concerts are downright frightening. And you never know, Reznor might go into stand-up comedian mode again and burn Skrillex
