Less than a week after confirming their upcoming new EP, Nine Inch Nails has returned with another new song from the impending release. On Tuesday (July 18), the Trent Reznor-led group unleashed “THIS ISN’T THE PLACE”; the second song off ADD VIOLENCE. Watch the Alex Lieu-directed clip above.
“THIS ISN’T THE PLACE” will join lead single “LESS THAN” on ADD VIOLENCE which is set to be released later this week. ADD VIOLENCE is set to be released digitally on July 21 while the CD and vinyl versions of the upcoming record will be released on Sept. 1. Pre-orders for the album can be found on Nine Inch Nails’ website.
ADD VIOLENCE is the second installment of Nine Inch Nails’ upcoming EP trilogy. Last year’s Not the Actual Events was the first installment of the trilogy while the name and/or projected release date for the final album has yet to be mentioned. In support of the upcoming EP, the group has a handful of festival appearances scheduled for later this year. Those dates can be found here.
After confirming to fans that new music was on the horizon, Trent Reznor and the rest of Nine Inch Nails have come through. On Thursday (July 13), the industrial icons revealed that they will be releasing a new EP at the end of July. The new five-track record, which has been titled ADD VIOLENCE, will be the second installment of their EP trilogy. At the end of 2016, the band released the first installment, Not the Actual Events. To accompany the ADD VIOLENCE announcement, Nine Inch Nails has also released the lead single from the record, “Less Than.” Watch the Brook Linder-directed clip for the new tune above.
ADD VIOLENCE is set to be released digitally on July 21, but if physically copies are your thing, you will need to wait a little longer. The CD and vinyl versions of the upcoming album will see a release date of Sept. 1. Pre-orders for the record can currently be found on Nine Inch Nails’ website. In addition to the new songs, fans will reportedly receive a “physical component” to the album. The group did the same when Not the Actual Events was released. The physical component for the 2016 release was a mysterious black powder which was packaged with a warning that read: “This will make a mess.” No details have been given about what ADD VIOLENCE’s physical component will be.
ADD VIOLENCE’s release confirmation comes a month after Reznor unveiled that the group will be releasing a trio of EPs with last year’s effort being the first installment. The full track listing for the album can be seen below while the group’s upcoming festival appearance can be seen below that.
