A new Nine inch Nails album is complete and ready for release later this year.  Trent Reznor explained what has been going on with Nine Inch Nails in a Tumblr post:

“I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly f*cking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!”

Nine Inch Nails has signed with Colbumbia Records for the album's release.

In addition to the new music, Nine Inch Nails will tour this summer and fall.  The band will play numerous festivals including the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit in Asheville, North Carolina.
