Trent Reznor says new full-length is "finished and frankly f--king great."
Reunited industrial rockers Nine Inch Nails have signed a new deal with Columbia Records, which will release the group's eighth studio album later this year.
The announcement arrives three months after band mastermind Trent Reznor officially reformed his most high-profile project for an extended tour that will kick off this summer. Reznor told Billboard last year that he had been writing new NIN songs, in spite of a dormancy that began after the group performed its final show together in Sept. 2009.
Since then, Reznor worked with Atticus Ross on the original scores for 2010's "The Social Network" and 2011's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," the former of which earned him a Golden Globe and Academy Award. He also released an album with a side project, How To Destroy Angels, last March.
