    What if there are two (or three) different EPs, split apart because each has separate cohesive themes?

    You mean, what if HTDA are stealing ideas from Green Day?

    Ummm... sure? Just like he stole the idea for a double concept album from Pink Floyd.

    And Pink Floyd stole his name from my former budgie, Floyd. Floyd was a badass

    All of this is going on the day after I get a job.

    This must be a sign that I'm gonna need the money for something very soon.

    One could say that it's...an...omen.

    Interesting. They've removed all the information about the album from both those pages. All thats left is the bare minimum. Maybe they got in trouble and hid it all away?

    Very cool! I like the title; what better way to get everyone amped about the future of HTDA than titling the pre-album EP "An Omen"? I am kind of confused about the method of releasing this information though. You'd think any new music announcements would come from Camp Reznor first.

    And, just to be a downer, I'm worried that a November EP might be confirmation that we won't see the full LP until early next year. Trent did say that we'd definitely see new music this year (or was that Rob or Q?), but he didn't specify "you will see the new HTDA album this year." So I guess it makes sense. I'm just tired of waiting.

    Perhaps this means it WON'T be an EP, and the info was wrong? If they've not taken down listing, but removed all data, that sounds to me more like fixing something that pretending it wasn't there.

    The Amazon product page still exists, but only if you know the link, as it no longer appears when you search. The only information that remains on that page is that it's a vinyl release from HTDA with title: TBD. I jumped on the pre-order when it was still up, and my pending orders still lists it as "An Omen Ep"

    The page exists, but is wiped clean. I don't feel HTDA are going to put out another EP after all of this, so misinformation seems more likely than EP. However, the release date hasn't been changed ... I wonder if that's set in stone.

    Oh, and if anyone's wondering, I've checked HTDA and NullCo's site for every subsite I can think of to do with that album name, no dice.

    I also had a quick look at Columbia records website just out of curiosity. I saw One Direction and quickly got the hell out of there

    "Soon" is a better title than "TBD"

    Yeah, he would've shot it down as a scam if it wasn't anything to do with them.

    So I ordered the pre-order with my Amazon Prime and selected next day shipping. Somehow it showed up today.
    Anyway, it just contained a short burst of noise. I played the record in reverse while importing the audio to my computer. I used Audacity and decided to save it with random extensions. When saved as a text file this is what happened:

    The Loop Is Open 0983412818 She shus an th Jehour and: agaidst the nored main hiple Mosplethe th wax, angs, abordah, ablovah thromon. Bab se the wicep, and bre stror ep unto ame itabored.

    WOW you guys are quick to speculate and overanalyze. Chill. As someone suggested earlier, smoke pot. Or smoke LESS, if it's making you all paranoid.

    Maybe each of the six tracks is really long, and this is the actual LP. HTDA goes prog. (There, I spared that bit of speculation.)

    Sorry but we've all been waiting a very long time for this. I for one am going to overanalyze and speculate on anything and everything I see. If a cloud formation passed overhead that resembled the HTDA logo in a very very small way and only if squinting, I would assume it's official advertisement. If I saw someone in the ocean, struggling to get to the surface, I would speculate that they were attempting a cover of A Drowning for a remix album. So when a fucking preorder appears on Amazon, advertising a brand new LP, you can probably imagine that I (and I'm sure I can speak for some otheres here) am going to speculate and analyze the buggering twat out of it because there is visible hype seeping out of every oriface on my body right now

    Perhaps EP is short for episode. It's a conceptual album that will fit into an arc of albums that span several themes all relating to one topic - episode one explores the human need to make sense from chaos, searching for signs.
    Can not wait for EP 2: LOST.

    I e-mailed Soundstagedirect (which has yet to take down the tracklisting) as to how they got the information and whether they can confirm its accuracy. It's probably a long-shot, but still it was worth the try.

    I have no idea. The track names are actually what make me think that this may all just be fictitious. But since Mariqueen usually writes the HTDA songs (at least based on the first EP), it may just be something we're not used to.

    Rob's tweet is what is most intriguing to me, but there is a chance that he was just having fun. Saying that it's a scam would just let us off too easy.

    EDIT: Alright, just to add more to the flurry of paranoia, I'm going to also add another (absolutely stupid) observation here, which I'm surely going to regret: "Speaking in Tongues" is also a Talking Heads album if I'm correct, and, well, Trent and David Byrne will be "in conversation" on October 14th, and I don't know where the hell I'm going with this, but hey, this thread is for throwing whatever we have at a wall, and this is just something random that I thought of.

    Somehow, your hypothetical description of the first two EPs describes the progression of this thread. Huh.

    "Thanks to the eagle-eyed people at NIN fan forum Echoing The Sound, a page for a new How To Destroy Angels vinyl EP was found over at Amazon, under the title An Omen."

    The news circulated to Antiquiet...
