    I still stand by that.
    Damn that would be amazing! It’s a long “circular” song, the structure fits perfectly with the way HTDA structures their music.

    One can only wish.

    I would've loved this project more if it didn't feel like such a Trent Reznor carbon copy. At the end of the day, the lyrics ... production ... vocal arrangements ... it had the Nine Inch Nails blueprint and formula all over it.

    It would've been more exciting to hear Trent's version of garage rock or even something along the lines of FKA twigs style r&b ... something COMPLETELY outside of the wheelhouse of Nine Inch Nails to test what he was capable of musically along with Mariqueen's vocals. But ... when I hear a song like this ...



    ... I'm sorry, that's just straight up 2005 - 2008 Nine Inch Nails.

    It's still great music IMO, but agreed. Does very much feel like recent NIN or TR/AR with Mariqueen's vocals, particularly that initial EP.

    I'd really like to see Trent outside his comfort zone with a more analogue band, playing less rigid structures. Absolutely no looping of anything, live instruments, messing around with dynamism, progression and time signatures, maybe even no synths. More garage rock as you say @thefragile_jake .

    To be honest, I'm over the whole "It sounds too much like Nine Inch Nails!" argument. Anything that Trent plays a major part in creating is going to sound like Nine Inch Nails, and I'm totally fine with that.

    Honestly a part of me just wish Trent said fuck it, this is Nine Inch Nails and not go under another name. I think he did it because he anticipated some fans would have bashed him for having his wife on vocals and cry about it like those John & Yoko kinda bashing types out there. It sounds like NIN, just make it be NIN. Especially now that Mariqueen joined him on Not The Actual Events. Just say fuck it and let her be on NIN tracks. If you got a problem with that, then fuck off. This is Nine Inch Nails now, deal with it. Mariqueen can show up whenever she and Trent like to have her on a track.

    I don't think he made it a separate band just because of Mariqueen though. I believe he even mentioned in an interview that he wanted to do something where he wasn't the only one in charge, hence why Mariqueen and Atticus and eventually Rob were part of it.

    Oh for sure, I think that's just the realization that you have to come up with at the end of the day ... but I was trying to revisit some HTDA material recently and found myself just getting a little bored. I just think that this project would've captured my attention if it didn't feel too familiar is all.

    I really hope that a new EP or album within 1-2 years. I prefer HTDA over recent NIN as well.

    I only JUST got into HTDA and I would love a new album sometime soon too. Mariqueen's vocals are really lovely, frankly, I would just like to hear more of her in general.

    Listening to HTDA again for the first time in what feels like years. Fuck, I missed this song.

    Everything is a thing if you think about it hard enough.

    I just think Trent and Atticus just don't have time for HTDA anymore.
    But if they create music and it sounds like HTDA, who knows? We could get a surprise announcement anytime.

    I imagine that if they wanted to do more HTDA then time wouldn't be a problem. They'd just work on it instead of NIN for a little bit.

    My gut says we'll never get another HDTA song, or at best maybe a single for a soundtrack or something. I'd love to be wrong, but it just feels like they're both more interested in NIN and scores than HDTA. Maybe Q is just more interested in other things than doing another album. Who knows.

    All I know is that their songs just seem to work really well with the cold / grey / changing leaves vibe of fall, so I've been listening to them a lot lately and yes, wishing that more was coming.

    Trent & Atticus definitely seem more interested in Nine Inch Nails and film scores at the moment, and I think Mariqueen is enjoying being a mom for a while. The fact that Parasite has been played at several recent shows tells me that they haven't completely left the project behind just yet. I think it's more a question of when, not if, we'll get something new from them.
