With this video, let's end all worry/discussion about any listening devices/media/otherwise:

This reminded me... Someone asked Rob on Twitter if he should preorder from Amazon, or wait to buy the vinyl from the HTDA store. Rob suggested that he wait... so I assume if you buy the vinyl directly from the band, it will come with a digital download.

maybe the lack of a CD for the EP is simply Trent being considerate. There will likely be a CD to accompany the full LP release. And he doesn't want us to have to buy the same thing twice. That's ok for vinyl collectors, cuz face it they've got more money than the average fan and/or will buy every little thing he puts out just so their collection is complete.

I miss CDs mostly because living purely digitally robs me of the physical artwork.

@robsheridan "We're viewing this as more of a collective than a band. I'm primarily visuals but it'll make more sense live." This. This part has me almost as excited as the music. But I doubt they'll venture far from LA, not with little ones at home. So I'll never get to see it. Sigh.

When Trent was in full control of the entire chain, there were no leaks.

With Columbia being involved, we got the name and track listing of the EP well before it was announced. The Amazon pre-order page prematurely displayed the promo photo of the band before the official announcement. Since the EP is not being pressed to CD, one of the major avenues for leakage doesn't exist, but if there are promo CDs made, I think there will be a collector feeding frenzy on those.

I think that if there's a leak of the EP, it would be at most a day or two before release, and even then, that will be a crappy vinyl rip.

Great observation. Amongst this whole "I Wish There Was a CD / Who Cares That There's Not a CD" argument, I think you hit on what's probably the main reason the band is only doing a vinyl and digital release: a potential leak is much more in control that way. The vinyl option is there for collectors and people who want a physical copy, and then there's always the possibility a CD will be manufactured for the LP, like everyone else has said. The biggest shock about signing to Columbia for me was the question of the leak(s). Trent has been so effective at avoiding that problem that it seemed like a step backwards... but they've definitely found some kind of loophole. Furthermore, signing to a label has to make more sense in that there's a lot less money coming out of the band's own pocket. This new partnership also suggests to me that there's less of a chance we'll get a free EP or LP download, which is fine. We've been spoiled.

The price of the LP will most likely dictate my choice as I would only purchase it for the artwork.
I would pay ten bucks at most for a CD copy coupled with digital release.
Once I have my ears wrapped around some versatile high quality audio files, I hardly care about any physical representations.

I like getting CDs to continue filling the shelf. Plain and simple. 80s kid, very sentimental. Every CD is at least a memory.

I can imagine it's a relief to go straight digital but I also don't have my digital self well organized, never have. I'll get there someday. Highest quality backups and all. But I still won't get rid of my CDs or stop wanting them.

Pretty understandable, ya fuckers.

Why does everyone who is against Blu-ray/HD make the "sweat and pores" argument, as if that's the only reason to watch something in HD?

Because no one I've heard argue for Blu Ray has made a convincing argument past the whole "but, look at the mole on his lower left butt cheek! It's like I can reach out and touch it!" I'd shill out more for better quality music, as an audiophile, but not for better quality images - I just don't see the appeal. Same with 3D. Why should I be expected to pay more for a way of viewing a film that won't add anything to it?

If you're watching movies with moley butt-cheeks, BluRay isn't the format for you. But when you're watching something like the Planet Earth series, the difference is worth it, in my opinion. You won't hear me arguing for 3D, but I'm down with higher resolution imagery. BluRay not only has higher resolution, but the compression doesn't create nearly as much artifacting as the MPG compression used on DVDs. Colors are brighter, edges more defined. But hey, if DVD's good enough for you, I'm not going to change your mind. My wife's the same way, doesn't care if it's in HD or not - and if you're sitting on a couch opposite a 32" screen than it doesn't really matter all that much if it's 1080p or 720p - although I can definitely notice 480p vs 720p. Likewise with YouTube - if higher resolution is available, I bump that up. Totally getting off topic though, and I'm wondering if it's worth splitting this talk about media into a separate thread.

Totally agree

yes

When it comes to the new ep, I have mixed feelings about getting to hear tracks before it comes out. sometimes when a band lets loose a single, or early track of some kind, I listen the shit out of it because I'm so excited to hear something. then when the full release comes I sometimes have the urge to skip that/those track/s. this gets compounded when it happens to be the first track because it's so easy to jump in on track 2.
The effect may be somewhat lessened if early tracks surface closer to full release.

on the other hand... I WANT TO HEAR NEW HTDA SONGS!!

also, sadly, I still hate the name of this band. the acronym is fine, but i just can't get on board with the full name. feels kinda cheesey, coil reference or not. LOVE the music though

When the debut by Them Crooked Vultures came out, it was available on vinyl for about $2 more than a digital download - and the vinyl actually came with a download code, so you could have the album on MP3, too. (In a twist of irony, the MP3s you could download were recorded from playback of the vinyl edition of the album - worst of both worlds!) If it's the year 2012, nearly 2013, and you're posting to a message board from any kind of capable computer, there's really no excuse for you don't have a portable digital playback device that does not require physical media.

You can get a 4gb iPod for $25 shipped (http://www.ebay.com/itm/US-Apple-iPod-Mini-1st-Gen-Generation-4GB-MP3-Player-Blue-/251144234103?pt=Other_MP3_Players&hash=item3a795ce477) on eBay. That's how much The Fragile cost the month it debuted. That's how much one copy of the Deluxe Edition of the Downward Spiral costs.

This Christmas, do yourself a huge favor - get rid of your CD players, if you haven't already. The only CDs I have left are my NIN collection, mostly. They sit in a closet, collecting dust - not unlike my modest vinyl collection.

I'd disagree here, sir. I still have a CD collection that I began in 2000. That's 12 years. It's my most prized physical collection. Like theimage13 said, I understand that most people don't buy CDs anymore, I admit that most of the times I listen to my music either in an iPod or a computer, but there's nothing like still buying a CD and listening to it on the day of release, AND adding that CD to a growing collection. Like I said, I started this collection 12 years ago, it'd be a ton of money to start all over again with vinyl.

An option would be a LE CD release, a-la The Slip.

I missed out on the first HTDA lp released, so this time I have pre-ordered it from Amazon.
If they do decide to release something more interesting via their own store...by that I'm hoping for some more art and maybe a few autographs...then I shall cancel my amazon preorder. A photo book would be very interesting to accompany it all.
From the sounds of what Rob has been hinting at hes been doing a lot of artistic type of work on this project.
Its turning into an exciting fall already.

i would definitely wait until htda website is updated with ordering info. it can't be that far from being updated seeing as we have a 11/13 release date coming up here pretty quickly. i always prefer to order from the artists website. they may receive more $$ from the sales of their website as opposed to going through amazon, although i could be totally wrong about that.

FEAR. A warning of something dangerous. The band will be telling us about en event that has been happening and what will follow. You have a choice, happiness or disaster. The person in the image probably chose disaster. (divination)

Good call. I agree with the sentiment of not being terribly excited for an instrumental from HTDA (due only to the probability of it bearing too close a resemblance to Social Network/GDT/Ghosts). HOWEVER, like I believe sheepdean said, I'm way into an into instrumental from Destroy Angels if it means some lyric-less vox and any kind of nifty vocal manipulation/production that comes with it. Something along those lines would be welcome. In any case, I do think there's a distinction between the score work/Ghosts and the instrumentals that pepper NIN's catalogue, so I'm definitely open to an instrumental here or there from these guys.

The cover art is amazing. I love it - reminds me of that Rockstar game Manhunt. Seriously creepy and scary. The first EP had some downright creepy moments on "Space in Between" and "The Believers", and judging from the new art direction I can only guess that the new tunes will push the moody, horror sound... ideally with some "Fur Lined"-esque moments of danceability and catchiness?? So damn excited for November!

Cool artwork... I'm of two minds about it though. While the self-titled EP's artwork was bizarre and not very appealing, it at least established HTDA as a very separate entity from NIN, while the artwork for An Omen seems to hail much closer to YZ-era NIN... not sure how I feel about it yet. It's cool, just not original.

Wouldn't think so. Besides, amazon mp3s aren't even available here in Canada last time I checked (USA only?). Best thing to do is preorder from Amazon for now to secure a vinyl for yourself, then when it's up on HTDA official website order it there and cancel the Amazon one. I'm curious about shipping... sometimes Amazon ends up being less costly.

Even Rob said the official website is a better option, though we don't know what the reason is yet. Could be a download link for vinyl people.

Yep, it looks too similar to previous works done by Rob for NIN. I expected something fresh and new since Trent said that he wanted the new HTDA's stuff to be very different to NIN's. The artwork for the first LP didn't look NINish at all, but this looks like a new single for WT or YZ. I hope the LP artwork will be far more original than this tbh.

Wasn't the artwork for the first EP done by Mark Weaver? That would explain the different look. But as of now Rob is part of the HTDA collective. In some tweets he exchanged with Sheepdean, he hinted that when performing live he would actually be on stage (or something of the nature) doing some sort of live visual artish type thing.

Yeah, I know the previous cover was done by Weaver (or by Rob using Weaver's art), but I thought Rob would try to do something different for HTDA and not just a rip-off from his previous works for NIN.

Trent said that the new music would be very different to NIN's after some people complained about the first EP sounding too much like NIN's music, and if they are trying to do something really different to NIN, I don't understand why the new artwork looks exactly like the stuff that Rob did for WT or YZ.

I'm not saying that Rob's work isn't good or that they should look for a new graphic designer, but I think that Rob should look for a more personal look for HTDA's artwork. That cover and the new website look too similar to WT's and YZ's works, and according to Trent this is a new band, not NIN 2.0 with a girl singing, then I don't understand why Rob is not looking for a new look for the band's artwork instead of repeating the stuff he previosuly did for NIN.

But maybe this has been made too quickly for the EP and the artwork for the LP will be really different, I don't know. I certainly hope so.

And by "different" I don't mean "unicorns and rainbows" artwork, I like dark looking artwork, but this stuff is too simlar to NIN's.

sheepdean
09-25-2012, 09:58 AM
Maybe the inside of the vinyl (assuming it's gatefold) will explain more. For now: sure, it's similar to Rob's normal style, but maybe that's what the band decided on? He could've made 100 covers, but none fit as well with the music as this one.

09-25-2012, 10:31 AM
i may be in the minority, but i'm not a fan of the cover. i love the cover artwork for the original ep and thought it fit well and distanced the band from nin. looking at this i would actually be surprised if it wasn't related to year zero in some way. year zero was a blue cover of a hand with some distortion of the image and this is a blue cover with a hand and some distortion of the image. hopefully it makes more sense in context, but it is really setting people up for disappointment by being so similar to nin when the music very well may be completely different. we'll see. still very excited to hear this.

After someone mentioned the visual link to (I can't remember the name of) the iPhone app where you take a picture, and it displays that picture on an old screen, then takes a picture of the screen and sends it to you, Rob was all "I did it first" and said he started on these visuals before that app came out. Which means all of this art was done a long-ass time ago.

"rip off"? Seriously? So it resembles some of his other work. How can he be ripping off himself? For the record I think it looks ace, a natural progression of some of his style elements and BETTER: much preferred to yz/slip era, much more like tsn/tgwtdt (note: neither are NIN)

Horican
09-27-2012, 06:11 AM
It doesn't feel that NIN-like to me. I mean it has glitches and all, but those aren't really NINventions. It's a similar aesthetic, but it gives me a different feel from YZ or WT. It seems more dark, haunting and mysterious (it reminds me of Videodrome, and I'm not the first one to say that). If I have to compare it to NIN, it actually reminds me of the grittiness of all of the broken era videos and especially the Broken film.

Could be NIN stuff... he says hopefully...

Nah, don't think so. The HTDA site shows a "plug-ins" pic too.
Hopefully they decided to create more tracks. Now they got more inspiration and more time to concentrate on the music (the record company takes a lot of bureaucratic shit away from them and the full length album will "only" appear begin 2013). "more air to breath" ;)

I'm kinda assuming the HTDA is done, just decided to not to release a full album this late in the year as it'll get swallowed up by the usual swathe of greatest hits albums that get released in the final qtr for the Christmas market.

Interesting note:
Sitek adds, "I told Trent I was starting my own label and would love to have him remix something on the first release. I sent him the session and before he actually said 'YES', he sent back this mighty dark space that he, Alessandro and Atticus had built for me! -

I can only conclude, Alessandro, Atticus and Trent were working in the studio on something when Sitek's track came in.
Maybe Alessandro will be involved in HTDA?
Mentioning the last tweet of Trent (having troubles with his gear), this could match.

Naturally, but the question goes for Columbia too. Maybe i'm being naive but they're releasing an EP next month for a brand new band. The only people who really give a damn are just NIN fans and a handful of other people. Still. I'm guessing this will make sense soon enough and there'll be some cool way in which this music will start to appear, but until then i'm pretty baffled. I guess they know what they're doing.

'80s Dance was awesome. I prefer to call it Synthpop...

"Dance" can be interpreted in MANY MANY ways. From Bowie's Lets Dance to Bobby Browns Aint no Humpin Around - From Snows Informer to Pet Shop Boys West End Girls - From SnP Lets Talk About Sex to Aretha Franklin - From Level 42s Something About You to Who Let The Dogs Out etc....

As for the DJ part... :confused: - Could be a million things. I know a lot of DnB & Jungle DJs loved to use NIN remix stuff on vinyl as a back beat to another song...

When i saw the word Dance i got excited. I highly doubt it's house music!, just very much an electronica record.

Been a huge amount of good electronic music released since the EP came out 2 years ago. I noticed a surge of really good innovative electronic music which started really suddenly in the middle of 2010 most of its been rather dark. All on various different labels most of it is from the States.
If the band have been listening to some of that awesome stuff then I have a feeling this will be rather different to the EP.
I can just see HTDA fitting in with a lot of the dark sounds and production out there at the moment.

But, reading your line....I thought that the complete first album was done.
Plans changed. They made a deal with Columbia and the team decided to release an EP first, containing a few songs which will be on the album too. (other tactics)

If they are doing new recordings, it's to expand the original album or they making homework for the next album later in 2013.

No, it's like this:

One listing on Amazon is the actual single - think of it as the "CD single", so to speak. The second listing is one individual track from that single - that's why the second listing is listed as "from the album 'Keep it together'".

It would make more sense if the "album" release had more than one track - each track would also be listed individually from the album. But since there's only one track on the "album", it ends up looking like the song is listed twice.

Well yeah you do have a point. Still, theres been no official word that Keep it Together has a video so we don't know it for a fact yet. We do know the song is finished and ready to be released so a mastering wheelmajigget is hardly any suprise to anyone. Then again it probably wasn't posted for any mysterious purposes to begin with. Anyways, 1 MORE FUCKING DAY!

I just kinda see it as a way to cut down on costs and increase profits because the EP seems more like a promotional tool than a full release, while still throwing a bone to the obsessed collectors. Or maybe Trent has decided that he's done with dumb reflective discs.

I thought it wasn't coming out on CD because it is on Columbia and major labels are abandoning the format (for the most part) this year.

yeah that was me. I was already going to checkout on amazon, then I canceled everything. I wasn't expecting an answer.

I'm listening Telepathe new remix "Destroyer" by Trent, Alessandro and Atticus. To be honest, I like it more than 'Keep it together' but, hey, I'm a bit off topic.

Two things from the interview:
- they're still recording for the full album (that's what we thought looking at the pics on their websites)
- no extra information about touring. would be nice to hear what they got in mind right now...

Max Leo
10-08-2012, 06:01 PM
I thought that Trent had learned the lesson, but everywhere I look, people are complaining about how the new single sounds too much like NIN ("pretending to be Portishead", someone said, which shouldn't be a bad thing imo, but in this case it probably is), how much (once again) Q's voice is wasted, etc... The same things that people complained about the first EP.

I just don't understand why they have chosen this track as the new single. If it was just one song from a 16 tracks album, nobody would complain about it, but this is not a good single at all.

The Reason Being
10-08-2012, 06:25 PM
Maybe they'll follow the same pattern as the first EP, as in release one song to keep us interested (A Drowning / Keep It Together), then a few days before the EP hits they'll release a "proper" single with its video (Space In Between / ???)

Yes, eventually some other music news site will sniff this out and get 'the scoop' on something I've personally known about for a while, but since this is a fan-centered site, if you don't mind, wrap that information in spoiler tags in the future.

Perhaps they didn't decide to sign with a label until the LP was almost finished/after it was finished, and by the time all the legal stuff and other logistics of the deal were wrapped up, it was way too late to organize a good tour. By releasing the LP in the spring, they can combine some club shows with festival appearances. (And the EP fulfills TR's promise to release new music this year, while also being a good tease/promotion for the full LP in a couple/few months.)

Or maybe there is a huge multimedia component to the LP that is taking a long time to develop. Or perhaps some other huge project is coming to fruition in the spring, and they wanted to launch at the same time. WHO KNOWS. Just go with it.
