    Not The Actual Events

    NEW MUSIC FROM NINE INCH NAILS

    LATE LAST YEAR, REZNOR DECLARED, “NEW NIN COMING IN 2016. OTHER STUFF, TOO.” THE OTHER STUFF AMOUNTED TO THE SCORES FOR NASA’S JUNO SHORT FILM, THE CLIMATE CHANGE DOCUMENTARY “BEFORE THE FLOOD” (FEATURING THE SONG “A MINUTE TO BREATHE”) AND THE ABOUT-TO-BE-RELEASED PETER BERG FILM “PATRIOTS DAY”. NOW JUST IN TIME HE MAKES GOOD ON THE NINE INCH NAILS SIDE OF THINGS.

    NOT THE ACTUAL EVENTS, THE NEW 5 SONG EP WILL BE RELEASED NEXT FRIDAY, 12/23 WITH PREORDERS LIVE RIGHT NOW. THE EP FINDS REZNOR AND NOW OFFICIAL BANDMATE ATTICUS ROSS TAKING AN UNEXPECTED LEFT TURN FROM 2013’S HESITATION MARKS AND SOUNDING UNRECOGNIZABLE FROM THEIR CURRENT FILM WORK.

    “IT’S AN UNFRIENDLY, FAIRLY IMPENETRABLE RECORD THAT WE NEEDED TO MAKE” SAYS REZNOR. “IT’S AN EP BECAUSE THAT ENDED UP BEING THE PROPER LENGTH TO TELL THAT STORY.”



    NOT THE ACTUAL EVENTS IS SELF-RELEASED AND WILL BE AVAILABLE ON ALL DIGITAL PLATFORMS 12/23. THE NIN STORE IS OFFERING TWO FORMATS AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW: 180G 1-SIDED VINYL, AND A UNIQUE LIMITED DIGITAL + PHYSICAL COMPONENT VERSION.




    PSA: Nobody knows what the "physical component" of the non-vinyl EP option is. It's clearly very specific wording and the picture for that item is a featureless black rectangle. I think it's safe to say it's meant to be a surprise.

    (Also I just preordered my FLAC download and "physical component."

    (Also $12 for 5 songs seems a bit steep.)

    What is this "physical component"? Guessing just like packaging without physical media?

    Guys, I'm kinda confused. Is it a full length album with an EP next week (like An Omen_ from HTDA) or what? It sounded like it's just an EP but on the website 1xLP. Help me!

    "THE INTENTION OF THIS RECORD IS FOR IT TO EXIST IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD, JUST LIKE YOU. CHOOSING THIS PACKAGE GETS YOU THE DIGITAL FILES AND WE WILL SHIP THE PROPER PHYSICAL COMPONENT TO YOUR HOUSE FOR YOU TO DEAL WITH, WHILE VERY LIMITED SUPPLIES LAST."

    I love the "for you to deal with" part

    Typically I find it a little annoying when new music is released and people immediately start talking about, "Oh, X of this aspect reminds me of this other NIN record!" but I am immediately reminded by the cover art of the new EP of the very physical type writer like aesthetic we saw with what would have been Bleed Through. I thoroughly enjoyed that style then and I'm happy to see something similiar.

    Edit: Just realized the cover aesthetic is basically exactly what it was for AATCHB and specifically Still, at least in terms of the text. Very interesting. I wonder why they made that choice.

    I can't believe this is happening. If their description is at all what it sounds like I may be getting the loud, abrasive, weird shit I wanted. Preordered a fuckton of vinyl and the physical component. My body is ready

    ok. An EP. If this was a release by any other band. I would be pissed. But this is the guy that gave birth to Broken. And when he says this shit is weird, that makes me hard. My body is ready.

    I think the most interesting part is the fact that Atticus is now officially a member of NIN.
    I'm really looking forward to whatever direction they take NIN together.

    It is only an EP. The options available are

    A) a $20 180 gram vinyl LP
    B) a $12 "physical component." No further explanation for what the second option is.

    This is the image for the physical component.

    Both options come with a choice of download (WAV, FLAC or MP3) that will be available at 12:01am on 12/23.

    This is the only new music announced, other than the unreleased tracks that are on the new instrumental Fragile vinyl.

    Ordered the physical component plus FLACS. Was worried it might be massively expensive to ship to UK but I could choose economy shipping or free shipping, is there a UK store anymore?

    I'm so hopeful there's no single because it's all too fucking weird and bizarre to promote via one song

    Ordered the "physical component" one. Received a mail to download : " Thanks for ordering from Nine Inch Nails. This email confirms your order of the following items:

    NOT THE ACTUAL EVENTS <br/><span> BRAND NEW NINE INCH NAILS <br/><span>DIGITAL + PHYSICAL COMPONENT<br/> - FLAC x 1"

    This download is... a picture, called "digi-phy_-_flac.jpg". Maybe it is a huge troll, maybe it is just that the "complete" file with all the songs is just not ready.
