Nine Inch Nails will release their new album in September.
The industrial band today (06.06.13) premiered their first single in five years, 'Came Back Haunted', and used the opportunity to announce details of their upcoming record 'Hesitation Marks', which has an official international release date of Tuesday September 3.
The band - Trent Reznor, Alessandro Cortini, IIan Rubin, Adrian Belew and Josh Eustis - recently hinted to fans about new material via their official Twitter account, posting: ''Surprise: A new #NIN album is finished, coming later this year on @ColumbiaRecords...
''In case you missed the news yesterday... We've finished a new album, it's coming later this year: #NIN2013 (sic)''
After a series of cryptic tweets, the group wrote: ''halo twenty eight: hesitation marks. 9.03.13. (sic)'', marking their 28th studio album following 2008's 'The Slip'.
Their declaration follows the departure of bass player Eric Avery, who quit the band in May because he felt too ''overwhelmed'' to commit to over a year of touring worldwide and instead wants to focus on his solo career in Los Angeles.
He wrote on his Facebook at the time: ''It's with very mixed emotions I tell you all that I'm pulling out of NIN. I know. Its been a tough call and I don't know if it's the right one.
''But I really want to focus on my musical life here in LA, on film work in particular. As the tour dates kept growing ... I just got overwhelmed.
''I just got home from a year of heavy travel with Garbage, the idea of leaving town for another year and a half, and with all the intensity that Nails demands ... fortunately my friend Trent understands all this and appreciated my pulling the plug now instead of deep into 2013 and 14. (sic)''
