How to Destroy Angels are getting ready to play their first shows as a band, and it's always helpful to be fully staffed. The band, which features Trent Reznor, Mariqueen Maandig, Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan among its ranks, just added another familiar face in Reznor's Nine Inch Nails cohort, Alessandro Cortini.

There were a lot of thrilled fans when Trent Reznor revealed that Nine Inch Nails would end their touring retirement to play shows again this year. Now the frontman is talking about the upcoming tour and he reveals there's a remote possibility for some new material working its way into sets.
Trent Reznor and his How to Destroy Angels bandmates took to Reddit to discuss their new album, 'Welcome Oblivion,' and while most of the fans participating in the chat were respectful, there was one who came out swinging at Reznor for his decisions in promoting the band and signing to a major label.
Just like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates, the craze of music mashups tells us you never know what you're going to get. Sometimes tracks you could never imagine sync up in perfect absurd harmony, and that's the case with a new mashup from an artist going by the name PomDeter. The mixmaster has decided to take the Nine Inch Nails classic 'Head Like a Hole' and put it together with the recent ubiquitous Carly Rae Jepsen hit 'Call Me Maybe.'
Trent Reznor has just unveiled some drop-to-your-knees-and-praise-the-lord-type of exciting news. He has confirmed that Nine Inch Nails are officially rebooted with a fresh, all-star lineup, blending previous NIN collaborators along with new members plucked from celebrated acts such as Jane's Addiction, King Crimson and Puscifer. And as if that wasn't cool enough, Nine Inch Nails are also set to embark on a U.S. tour this fall, with Billboard reporting that they will also headline Lollapalooza this summer.
It's always difficult to predict the next move of Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor. Along with his legendary industrial group, Reznor's discography includes making music with his wife for How to Destroy Angels and creating original scores for feature films. Now, Reznor has officially announced that he is planning to release new Nine Inch Nails songs on an upcoming best-of compilation.
