Trent Reznor's alternative rock act Nine Inch Nails has struck an administration deal with British publishing firm Kobalt Music Group.

Under the agreement, Kobalt will represent the band's new U.S. chart-topping album "With Teeth" (Nothing/Interscope) and future works, and leverage catalog for selected territories. Kobalt has also pledged to aggressively pursue synchronization opportunities for film, TV, advertising, and other mediums. The agreement covers the world outside north America.

"We look forward to a long and successful relationship," Kobalt CEO Willard Ahdritz says of the pact.

Nine Inch Nails is currently on the British leg of its world tour. The band plays tonight (July 11) at the sold-out Manchester Apollo.

Kobalt clients include 8 Mile Style, James Brown, Sanctuary Music Publishing, Gwen Stefani and Max Martin.
