Trent Reznor's been lying to us, but his fans probably won't mind. The singer, producer and composer announced on Nine Inch Nails' Tumblr today that his band (which he laid to rest in 2009) has completed a new album and has signed to Columbia. Nine Inch Nails had previously announced a return to touring (with a lineup of past NIN collaborators and members of King Crimson and Telefon Tel Aviv), headlining major American fests including Lollapalooza and Outside Lands. But his Tumblr note is Reznor's first hint of new NIN music since 2008's "The Slip.

Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age had one of the most coveted Grammy performance slots. Immediately after the unveiling of album of the year, the Grammys were set to end on a grand finale that celebrated all things rock. Instead, moments after Trent Reznor's Nine Inch Nails took the stage, the Grammys and CBS cued up the credits. "Music's biggest night ... to be disrespected," Reznor tweeted shortly after the show. The rest of the tweet isn't safe to print for a family newspaper (or its website)

Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and English musician Atticus Ross will put their knack for chilly, moody soundscapes to use once again in director David Fincher's upcoming thriller "Gone Girl," an adaptation of the  Gillian Flynn novel about a man whose wife disappears on their fifth anniversary and leaves him as the prime suspect. Reznor and Ross have worked together on a number of NIN albums and also crafted the scores for two previous Fincher films: "The Social Network" (2010)

They're a star-crossed couple, two misfit provocateurs brought together by fate, on a mission of mayhem to shock the system with images of extreme brutality. Mickey and Mallory, the merciless titular figures of "Natural Born Killers"? Or Oliver Stone, the film's director, and industrial-rock star Trent Reznor, who helped shape the movie's ambitious musical track and album? The latter, like the former, was a match made in, well, wherever.

Is Trent Reznor a secret soul-music man? After spending the summer earning concert reviews filled with words like "brutal" and "wrathful," the Nine Inch Nails frontman revealed the lineup for the band's upcoming Tension 2013 tour, and it features some perhaps-unexpected R&B veterans. According to a tweet from its official account, the influential industrial-rock group will perform as an eight-piece, including bassist Pino Palladino (who's played with D'Angelo and Jose James) and backup singers Sharlotte Gibson and Lisa Fischer, the latter of whom tours regularly with the Rolling Stones.

Perhaps the creepiest parts of 2010's "The Social Network" and 2011's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" wasn't the the icy detachment of the fictionalized "Mark Zuckerberg" or David Fincher's twist on Swedish noir, but the tension-wracked scores from Trent Reznor and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross.  Now Reznor-philes and die-hard Nine Inch Nails fans have some new music from the artist under the newly typographically intense aegis of ...

There's a misconception afoot about "Year Zero," the latest project from musical puppet master Trent Reznor's Nine Inch Nails. Launched in February with a cryptic message on a tour T-shirt, fleshed out in dozens of websites, scary voicemail messages, Morse code blips, murals, fliers and other real-world propaganda, "Year Zero" reaches a peak (but not its conclusion) with today's album release. There's never been such an extensive or well-planned campaign involving a major pop release.

A great rock band requires a source of tension. It can be almost anything: the relationship between melody and noise in Nirvana, for instance, or the competing interests of creative co-captains like Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in the Rolling Stones. During its original run, Nine Inch Nails drew on several such sources, including frontman Trent Reznor's uneasiness about the celebrity he'd attained and the obsession in his lyrics with submission and domination. The group packaged a sense of danger for a mass audience.

When Trent Reznor plays arena shows, he usually has a quiet spot to go hide from the crowd and rest his voice. Not so when the Nine Inch Nails founder played the Troubadour on Tuesday in celebration of his industrial rock act's comeback album, “Hesitation Marks.” “We usually have several places that we can go onstage,” he joked. “Back there I'm usually relaxing, catching up on 'Breaking Bad.'” At this point in his decades-long career, no one would blame him for taking time to kick back with Walter and Jesse.

Mere hours after Nine Inch Nails released a new single , Adrian Belew revealed that he's left the recently revived group ahead of an extensive world tour set to begin next month. The guitarist, best known for his work with the influential prog-rock band King Crimson, announced his departure in a tersely worded post on Facebook. "Concerning me being part of the 2013 Nine Inch Nails band: it didn't work," he wrote Thursday. PHOTOS: Iconic rock guitars and their owners Belew is the second member of Nine Inch Nails to quit since frontman Trent Reznor reconvened the L.A.-based group earlier this year.

Up in a third-floor dressing room at the Wiltern, Joshua Homme is drinking Mexican beer and struggling to enjoy a borrowed ultra-slim cigarette. The singer-guitarist from Queens of the Stone Age looks and sounds the same as always, a big, wisecracking rocker with red hair cropped extra-short. Other band members wander in and out, trading hellos with the bandleader, but when new drummer Jon Theodore arrives, Homme asks, "You got a real ciggy, babe? How are you?" "I'm … fantastic," replies Theodore, bearded and grinning, as he pulls out a fresh pack.

"Hey, that guy kinda looks like David Bowie. . . . Naahh, can't be." The speaker is part of a growing crowd of onlookers on a downtown Manhattan street. Surrounding him are police officers, paparazzi, men and women carrying walkie-talkies, tourists with cameras and other gawkers--all clear signs of a celebrity in the neighborhood. Still, the doubting passerby has reason to be skeptical.

Trent Reznor has two piles of scientific photo books, their titles promising microscopic views of molecular chaos and such, stacked on the coffee table in his San Fernando Valley hotel suite. It's not that the musician has suddenly acquired an academic interest in biology. Rather, he's on the lookout for pictures that he can use as promotional art for his new album, "The Downward Spiral."

Two days after Eric Avery revealed in a Facebook post that he'd left the band in order to "focus on my musical life here in L.A.," Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails announced Friday that Robin Finck had rejoined the influential industrial-rock group. The guitarist has toured and recorded with Nine Inch Nails at various points over the last two decades, including on the 2008 album "The Slip" and during the so-called NIN/JA tour in 2009 with Jane's Addiction. Finck has also played as a member of Guns N' Roses.
