Am I missing something? Does tomorrow hold some sort of significance?

Oops, sorry, not as far as I know. Just the post has got me all hyped and shit. Being far too optimistic but a man can dream

I gather the fapping will go on much faster in light of Trent's latest tweet.

I've been fapping for months now. They should change the name of the band to "How to Destroy Your Junk"...

I'm actually suprised how little movement theres been here so far. Granted this is a NIN board and granted it's just one post, but still... I for one am rather hyped right now

Teasing bastard. I just want the album to drop at this point. Maybe we'll hear something substantial this week regarding a release.

Tomorrow; Tuesday feels kind of familiar, in terms of CDs being released. And Year Zero was released 5 years ago, tomorrow.

I've been assuming it must not be finished to some extent, otherwise it would have been released ages ago. I did assume the music itself was finished however. I know nothing about releasing an album but I thought maybe the production aspect may have been holding them back.

Maybe they're working on packaging of actual CDs - they do take a lot of care with packaging and there were delays with the GWTDT deluxe soundtrack which they would probably want to avoid this time.

I know when it comes I'll want a physical CD as well as just download. Personally I think I'll just order it from them rather than wait for Amazon as I'm not really bothered about when the physical cd arrives as long as I get it at some point, and I don't want to order the download for a fee and then pay again for a cd. Anyway I think that sort of thing is more complicated than we think

Yeah, it must be something to do with that. I'm guessing they just don't want to release it digitally untill they can give us a solid date for the physical release. Still, some word at all would be lovely

Well there's definitely a precedent for that - I think all his major releases since parting with Interscope have been download now, buy physical copy later. I'm sure this won't be any different.

I want them both now ;)

As much as I want to hear the new music, there are some things that I just don't listen to until I have the physical version, artwork and all, in my hands. Waiting for the first EP to show up was bad enough; Ghosts was a huge torment. But the childlike rush I get from pulling off the plastic wrap and actually putting a CD into a CD player is something I still like to save for artists (and their offshoots) that I grew up listening to.

I still prefer the joy of opening a new cd, looking at the art, popping it in the player, and looking through the booklet.

I would consider the tweet important.

I'm sure he's listened to the record tons of times. He specifically felt the need to tweet about it for a reason, especially after so much radio silence.

I'm just at the point where I just want to hear their new sound as quickly as possible. I would definately like the cd, but at this stage, I'm really not worried about when it arrives (assuming they release their music digitally first as has been the case of their newer releases).

Or they could put up the digital at any time, then announce (smaller scale) deluxe stuff later. CDs and vinyl aren't that hard to organize, they could do that immediately as well.

If I were them, I'd send a free copy of the album to anyone who was affected by the delay in the GWTDT deluxe. A nice gesture?

Wouldn't be a bad idea. Aphex Twin did something similar when a select group of fans got faulty vinyl copies of one of his releases. He sent them all a vinyl version of an album he hadn't even released yet for their troubles. I don't see Trent and Co. doing this, but maybe everybody who ordered the deluxe package gets a first taste of the new album. Maybe a download code that let's them download a song or two. That would be a good way to make up for the delay without having to release the album in full and to give us something to look forward to still.

Not wrong. I'm not sure they'd be quite as exciting though since those ones we weren't even sure if it was Trent involved. Not until we saw that Skull lamp and the swarmotron. It could be a nice way to build up to the album/single though.

I'm thinking this will be released early/mid may with any luck. I actually had a nightmare that the album was released and I didn't like it. Obsessing way too much I think. Minecraft Xbox360 is out early May so I'm just gonna focus on that then get hyped for the album when theres a concrete date. Saying that, if any of them mention it on Twitter (regardless how small and trivial the tweet is) I'll once again be foaming at the mouth.

Jesus, I think you're right FernandoDante. I need to get out more..

Usually it's just remixes of the single itself. Or I'm just missing out on a new trend.

Also, Infidel Hearts was confirmed NOT to be the album title on (I believe) Q's Twitter. Sounds cool, though.

I have a few singles with other remixes from the album on (far more common in RnB and Hip Hop in my experience), it's not unheard of, but these days singles rarely have anything on but the track itself and some awful amateur remix.

LOS ANGELES – Academy and Grammy Award winning composer, musician and producer Trent Reznor, founder of the group Nine Inch Nails (NIN), has upgraded his private studio with a Solid State Logic Duality SE (http://www.echoingthesound.org/music/duality) console. Reznor chose the Duality on advice from producer/engineer Alan Moulder while they were mixing the soundtrack for the film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. They used the Duality to complete mixing the tracks that Trent composed with Atticus Ross, as well as the soundtrack’s two cover songs – Led Zeppelin’s ‘Immigrant Song,’ featuring Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Bryan Ferry’s ‘Is Your Love Strong Enough?’ by Reznor and Ross’ side-project How to Destroy Angels.
This was the second soundtrack that Reznor and Ross have worked on together, the previous being the Oscar-winning The Social Network.
“We began the mix for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on an SSL AWS 900, the console we used to mix our music for The Social Network,” says Reznor. “As we started the mix process, I was feeling that I wanted to move to a large format console. While the AWS 900 is a spectacular analogue console – and it made a massive difference to our sound when we switched from using a dedicated ICON controller – the channel count became limiting for the Dragon project. I discussed it with Alan, who has been my friend and engineering wizard since recording NIN’s The Downward Spiral in 1994, and we decided to take a chance on Duality mid-way through the project. The installation went smoothly and the console worked flawlessly from start to finish.”
“Duality is like an AWS on steroids,” adds Moulder. “It has a similar layout, so it was great to take the studio to the next level and not have to re-learn a whole new console. I really love working with the EQs – the ones we all know and love – and having dynamics available on each channel is great. I really like how easy it is to do recalls. We would work on a track, park it and go on to another one if we felt we were getting bogged down creatively. Because you can use two or three people to do a recall on Duality, the reset process was really quick. Duality is perfect for the way we like to work and the sound quality is really impressive.”
Reznor is no stranger to SSL – the original Nothing Studios in New Orleans, which he opened in 1994, featured a 4000 G+ console. This is where he recorded albums like The Downward Spiral and The Fragile. When he moved to LA in 2005, he built a home-based studio around a DAW and controller, later replacing the controller with an AWS and then the Duality.
“Right now we are completing mixes for the new How To Destroy Angels album on Duality,” explains Reznor. “We’re in a world where technology is our friend and all the keyboards, instruments, outboard gear, plug-ins and the like are just toys to be employed and deployed as best you can. But having what the Duality has provided for us in a very elegant way has certainly embellished and eased the creative process.

You may be in for a letdown, then. Trent has said numerous times that the sonic line between the EP and NIN was way too blurry, and the LP would be something that bore little to no resemblance to Nine Inch Nails.

Why the talk about a delay? The album might have only been mastered yesterday. Just because Trent has thrown stuff online immediately before doesn't mean they will every time. They could still have artwork to do, film a video, finish work on the Fragile re-issue, prepare deluxe editions (if any), organize publishing and distribution deals, deal with the two infant children 2/3s of the band have..

For all we know, they could intend to release in August. We've been spoilt before. We need to be patient - I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for the band to be reading this, especially when every other band on earth gets to sit and wait during the 3 month press lead time.

So much so that the wait for this album hasn't even begun to equal the wait between albums back in the 90's.

The first NIN song I heard was probably The Perfect Drug, also on MTV. They had these little text blurbs of information during the video, explaining how "Trent liked to do videogame soundtracks". I don't recall whether I liked The Perfect Drug or not, but I saw the Only video a few years later and thought "WTF is this electronic shit?"

A year earlier and I may have thought the same thing. It was weird though as I was kind of new to music alltogether so before that I had only heard the name Nine Inch Nails. I'd always assumed they were a sort of classic rock band like Black Sabbath or something

Me too! Like exactly, even down to the Sabbath reference. In the ninth grade, when I heard a radio DJ say "next up, Nine Inch Nails" before playing Closer, and I recognized the song (because if you grew up in the '90s, who doesn't recognize Closer?), it blew my mind. Suddenly I wanted to hear more. I even had a friend who had been trying to push NIN on me for a while, but I was always disinterested verging on antagonistic (and I HATED March of the Pigs, which is a shame).

Yeah I really dont know what was up with that either. I just always assumed without any actual reasoning. It actually took me a bit to fully get into them. I'd liked them from that point on but it was only untill I had a chance to listen to Closer with ear phones that I began to realise how much was going on in it. After that, I'd always found it amazing how much work was put into each and every track. It's like a song in a song in a song all complimenting eachother perfectly. I was infact listening to "Only" semi recently and noticed a really badass weird sort of distorted guitarish effect that sounds just awesome at one point in the song. Now every time I listen to the song I always listen out for it.

I'm not saying they owe us information or anything like that. It's their album, they can do anything they want with it. Just, I've been naively thinking this album was going to be here really soon for the last 2 months but now, I'm beginning to wonder if we're even gonna see it this year.

We all know his most recent material has came out right around the time it has been completed, but even The Fragile was being finished only days/couple weeks before it was released (WITT was giving them fits).

Well, if the Twitter post linked above is accurate, it only means that the mix was about to be finished - that doesn't say anything about mastering, which is a whole other beast. The test drive tweet? Maybe just one edit given off to the guys, and they wanted to keep tweaking the master.

Or maybe the artwork/packaging hasn't been nailed down yet. I don't know for sure, but I think the "surprise!" releases (Ghosts, Slip) already had that stuff pretty much lined up before the albums were announced. So even if the audio is 100% ready to go, maybe they're just waiting to have the whole thing wrapped up so they can offer it with a more definitive availability date.

Or maybe Atticus has turned out to be a Saudi intelligence op and has slipped off to Yemen with every known recording.

Considering how anti-climactic and delayed the deluxe version of the GDT score was (still haven't received mine), I would also guess that this is the case. Getting the artwork finalized is one thing, but again, after the GDT crap, Trent & Co. are probably being extra picky about their manufacturer.

Were about to hit June with absolutely no promotion for this album. It's looking like this won't be a summer 2012 release either (just like it wasn't an end of 2010 release, a first quarter 2011 release, a fall 2011 release, a first quarter 2012 release, or a spring 2012 release). :(

Maybe we're stuck in a horrible cycle where every single time we get an official speculated release, the speculated release gets pushed back afew quarters and this cycle continues and the album never see's the light of day. Or, even worse, it goes the same way as Chinese Democracy. If Trent or Atticus goes all celebutard drama queen douche on us we'll know what to expect

No, the plan was to release it in the first quarter of this year, and before that were several other missed deadlines, so it's actually not going according to plan(s). Now it's just an exercise in patience for the stock of devoted fans Trent has accumulated over the years (the band itself hasn't produced enough to gain a following yet) and an example of why it's better to wait until you've hammered down a release date before you start hinting and teasing a new album.

If you look at Nine Inch Nails release dates, they're all over the map (I'm not using HDTA release dates because there is only one release from that project and thus does not provide reliable data).

This sample of data skews toward a release date somewhere around July to August.

Here is a list of mid-year releases from Nine Inch Nails:

The Day the World Went Away (http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/nine_inch_nails/albums.jhtml?albumId=158024)
Release Date: 07/20/99

Capital G (http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/nine_inch_nails/albums.jhtml?albumId=1560572)
Release Date: 05/29/07

The Fragile (http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/nine_inch_nails/albums.jhtml?albumId=160111)
Release Date: 09/21/99

Broken (http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/nine_inch_nails/albums.jhtml?albumId=67125)

The order things will most likely come, based on how things are generally done by Null/Trent, is
Promotion -> single -> music video -> LP digital -> LP physical -> ?live?

Which means most likely, even if we get promotion tonight, there'd still be weeks or even months until the LP drops.

September is considered mid-year? If so, then you should also count With Teeth, which came out in May; Year Zero, which came out in April; and The Slip, which came out in July.

EDIT: Not that any of this fucking means anything, anyway. I can't see how it would. Shit's been delayed for long enough, I can't see Trent purposefully putting this stuff off just to find a proper release date. IMO, something's not done yet, they're still working on the album, be it the artwork or running out of ink for autographed copies or whatever.

As for the plan, we already know they will tour so it could include rehearsing and tour scheduling. I wouldn't be surprised if they did some kind of crazy promotional/arg type thing. I also wouldn't be surprised if the tour included Trent and Atticus performing The Social Network, TGWTDT, and/or Ghost tracks.

theimage13
05-31-2012, 07:08 PM
I would pay good money to see a fully instrumental TSN/TGWTDT/Ghosts performance. But that's neither here nor there.

As for HDTA, I would really love it if "later this year" turned out to be tomorrow, but I'm not at all expecting that. Realistically, I'm hoping late summer/early fall. Based purely on the music that Trent and Atticus have written as of late, I just get the feeling that this could be a good album for walks in the fall. But as for the whole "plans" thing - I highly doubt there's an ARG in store. Probably more logistics, like "how the fuck do we tour - even on an exceptionally small scale - when two of us are the parents of two tiny little kids?"

witte
05-31-2012, 07:31 PM
I think touring will take place in the US only and I think in a few 'big cities' in small venues (club tour).

I only hope they will give us some space and time to schedule/plan the trip to a concert (and buying tickets for those gigs).
I live in Europe, I work and I need the time to arrange a trip to the US....

theimage13
05-31-2012, 07:55 PM
I agree that it's likely they would do an extremely limited number of shows - major cities and small to mid-size venues. If that's the case, I would absolutely LOVE to see a streaming service worked out for the majority of fans who simply cannot take multiple days off and travel hundreds (or thousands) of miles to see these sets. Honestly, a full-stage camera from FOH and an independent audio mix for the feed, would be amazing. I realize that hiring yet another qualified audio engineer would be no small expense (unless they went with local contractors city to city). But given that I'll almost certainly be unable to catch one of the inaugural shows, I'd be willing to pay a fair price for something like this. Or again, a full stage cam, mixed after the show with the PT files, and sold online as a download. I'd buy it without thinking twice.

You know...just in case anyone with influence is reading this.

I wonder what "the plan" is? ARG, promotion, tour or packaging are the only things that need a plan really.

I wouldn't read too much into whatever their "plan" is - it's likely fairly mundane, practical stuff. I didn't get a very cryptic vibe from Trent's post, and I can't imagine there being an ARG. It just sounded like he was giving a mass update in lieu of the quiet facebook comments. Booking a tour that parallels a smooth and calculated album release has to be a priority. I'm sure artwork and packaging is still being worked on, and finding a reliable manufacturer is more important than ever after the GDT Deluxe mess. Fingers crossed for a new music video eventually as well (which falls under the all-important promotion category). Of course, each band member has a family to spend time with, too.

I'm psyched though! It's good to know things are happening. I can certainly wait longer, even if I'd rather not. The fact that a tour is happening is enough to keep me going - that was a pretty big question mark for a while, and is very exciting. I think all this behind-the-scenes and business stuff simply insures that we'll have an excellent presentation for the album when the time comes.

I'm actually happy they're taking their time on this. Trent has learned from his "The Slip" experiment that music shouldn't be rushed (I'm saying this because The Slip was probably the weakest NIN effort of all time). If they're taking their time, then it means they're planning to make this release big. They want all their marketing weapons ready to fire and distribution channels opened.

carpenoctem
06-02-2012, 02:56 PM
But I don't think the issue is that they don't want to rush the writing process; that's been done for a long time now. They've already put together the album, mixed and mastered it, etc. Now presumably they are working on the packaging and advertisement. So the cumulative time it took to actually get together and write the album as a group is probably much smaller than the time it took to make the detours - the TSN and TGWTDT soundtracks - and the normal life stuff involved with having a family and taking care of yourself.
