He and his wife and West Indian Girl frontlady Mariqueen Maandig are the only confirmed collaborators on the project, which seems to be industrial-influenced and synth heavy. A simple message has been reported:
"Self-titled 6-track EP out this summer. Exact date TBA."
A woman's hand -- puportedly Maandig's -- can be seen in the vdeo sliding over a nob and a ribbon on a sound machine.
Early this year, the Nine Inch Nails frontman said he was planning two projects this year -- one NIN, one not. "2010 has a number of things planned including new material from nine inch nails and something else that isn't nine inch nails. I am in a state of rediscovery and reinvention that feels unfamiliar, unsure and exactly what I need," he posted on his website.
Oh, and in our seeking to find answers to who How to Destroy Angels was, we re-discovered that it's the title of a Coil album, too. Remember them?
Nine Inch Nails is not disbanded as a project, but is on indefinite hiatus from the road.
