Nine Inch Nails (NIN) baru saja membagi dua track pertama dari rencana perilisan EP terbaru, bertitel ‘Add Violence’. Band kembali muncul pada akhir pekan sebelumnya (Kamis, 13 Juli 2017) dengan ‘Less Than’, lalu ‘This isn’t The Place’ pada Selasa malam kemarin – dengar di bawah.

‘Add Violence’ merupakan babak kedua dari ide peluncuran EP trilogi yang sudah dimulai oleh Trent Reznor dan kawan-kawan pada akhir tahun 2016 kemarin, dengan memperkenalkan ‘Not The Actual Events’.

Sementara itu, berbicara dengan Zane Lowe di Beats 1 pada akhir pekan kemarin, Reznor mengakui jika dirinya belum mengetahui akan seperti apa penampilan bab terakhir dari rencana trilogi EP bandnya.

“I’ll tell you the blueprint of this suite of records has been starting with the kind of script – the lyrical construct, the world that they sit in,” ucap Reznor menjelaskan. “And then, really following inspiration in the studio to find out musically kind of feels inspiring at that time. When we did ‘Not The Actual Events’ we were really seduced by the violence of it. The kind of throwing ‘Hesitation Marks’, out the window and being unafraid to explore approaches we have in the past with the kind of, you know, punch in the face feel to it.

“And I think that the length of a five-song EP felt like the right length for that, you know? And to repeat that isn’t as exciting anymore,” sambungnya kembali. “It’s like we did that. So now as we expand the lyrical viewpoint of this three song trilogy, the music that was interesting to us this time around kind of surprised us. And ‘Less Than’ is not entirely representative of where the rest of the EP goes. So this collection of five songs feels like brothers.”

“I have no idea what the last part of this will be. I know lyrically where it goes, but I don’t know what it’s going to sound like yet.”
