Back in December, Nine Inch Nails re-emerged from hiatus with an EP titled Not the Actual Events, a release that was accompanied by a bizarre roll-out that included sealed packages of mysterious black powder delivered to unwitting fans. Now, frontman Trent Reznor has revealed that it was but the first part of a trilogy of EP's, with the second installment coming our way within the month.
This information was conveyed in an aggressively all-caps email to fans, wherein Reznor point blank stated the following: "DID YOU KNOW NOT THE ACTUAL EVENTS WAS THE FIRST PART OF A TRILOGY OF RELATED EPS THAT WILL BE RELEASED ABOUT 6-8 MONTHS APART? NOW YOU DO." Armed with this knowledge, it is widely assumed that the second EP will be out before their headlining set at NYC's Panorama Festival in July.
