While Oscar nominations dominated the news today, former Academy Award winner Trent Reznor has some non-film news of his own. His current band with Atticuss Ross and Mariqueen Maandig, How To Destroy Angels, has finally put a title and release date to their debut full-length.
“Welcome oblivion” (capitalization theirs) will be out on March 5 via Columbia; it’s the follow-up to How To Destroy Angels’ second EP “An Omen,” released in the fall last year.
That set was their first in a partnership with Columbia records, which apparently was a strong enough showing for them to make good on another effort with the label.
Perhaps in an effort to kiss-off that set, the band has put out a dour video for “Omen” track “The loop closes.” Because that’s how they like to celebrate big news. Sleep tight in the videodrome.
Meanwhile, Reznor has been working with Josh Homme on at least one song for the new Queens of the Stone Age album, and he’ll appear in Dave Grohl’s “Sound City” documentary.
