Two days before Christmas and Trent Reznor decides to remind us of how insane 2016 has been by resurrecting his band Nine Inch Nails with a 5 song EP entitled Not The Actual Events.
As Trent “lovingly” describes on his website:
“IT’S AN UNFRIENDLY, FAIRLY IMPENETRABLE RECORD THAT WE NEEDED TO MAKE”. “IT’S AN EP BECAUSE THAT ENDED UP BEING THE PROPER LENGTH TO TELL THAT STORY.”
I don’t think he’s kidding. Here’s the first song released from the EP. This is definitely not “chestnuts roasting on an open fire”
