Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross announced on Monday (Oct. 21) that they'll be releasing their score to HBO’s Watchmen in three separate albums.

The new Damon Lindelof-created superhero series based on the popular graphic novel debuted Sunday night (Oct. 20), but the trio of LPs by the Nine Inch Nails bandmates-turned-composers are all due out by the end of the year. Volume 1 is slated for release Nov. 4, Volume 2 will follow two weeks later on Nov. 25, and Volume 3 will hit retailers Dec. 16.

All three Watchmen albums will be released to coincide with events taking place throughout the series’ nine-episode first season, and are available for pre-order via the Nine Inch Nails website.

Check out the official Watchmen announcement -- plus a teaser of the albums’ mysterious cover art -- below.
