Nine Inch Nails New EP Dropping THIS WEEK!

Friday, December 23rd will for sure be an exciting day for Nine Inch Nails fans, as their newest EP will drop worldwide for fans to listen to and download. This will have been the first release from the band since 2013, which was a studio album entitled Hesitation Marks. Cutting it close to the end of the year, this EP comes after a promise made by Trent Reznor that the band would put out new material before the end of the year had come. With eight days left before 2017, Not The Actual Events seems like they’re playing it pretty close to the chest!

The five track EP was recorded by Reznor and Atticus Ross. In addition to being released through a number of modern mediums, the album will also be available via 180-gram one sided vinyl, with pre-orders open via the band’s website. Reznor also goes on to state that the EP tells a story, and that five songs was the absolute perfect length to do so.

Within this release also comes the notion of a limited edition vinyl of the 1999 album The Fragile. This will include 27 tracks, with instrumental and alternative versions of classic songs, as well as a few goodie ‘unreleased’ tracks. This is paired with what Reznor states as mastered audio, recreation of artwork, and some surprises along the way. Many things that won’t be noticed, but mattered to the band above all else.

Not The Actual Events is sure to be a classic album that continues the legacy of NIN, as they’ve continued to produce quality music that traces back to the late 1980’s.

Ed Sheeran Album On The Way?

Famed singer Ed Sheeran hinted at new music on Instagram, which comes two years after his ‘x’ album in 2014. Many fans have been trying to decipher what his post means, though the indication is obvious that new music is on the horizon. When this album will release is anyone’s best guess, but we have a hunch that it’ll be sooner than later. What it also odd is this happened on Taylor Swift’s birthday, which may hint at another feature with both of them working on music collaboratively.

Ed changes his profile picture on all 3 social media handles to a shade of blue. This comes one year after a hiatus from the outlets, which caused an even bigger stir within the music community who so closely follows him. Amy Wadge who has worked with Sheeran on a number of projects hinted in an interview that his third LP will be releasing ‘very soon’ and will obviously make headlines and some top 200 charts. She also went on to say that he’s been preparing for this album for nearly a year.

Sheeran took a break from the music world last year when he concluded that he needed to utilize the time for family and other matters that have passed him by since his introduction to the limelight in 2012. Coming through on his promise, this tease comes one year after his hiatus and is an indication of great things to come, especially music. He is most known for his songs ‘Photograph’, ‘Thinking Out Loud’, and his duet with Taylor Swift ‘Everything Has Changed”.

Is There ANOTHER Rolling Stones Album On The Way?

Seeing as it’s been almost 11 years since we’ve seen a Rolling Stones album, it’s only fitting that after their most recent drop “Blue and Lonesome”, another album might be on the way. The first album which only featured covers of other songs has already bolted to, and may hold a spot at #1 in the U.K, as they’ve done multiple times throughout their career. Even more impressive was that Blue & Lonesome was recorded in just three days.

With this one a week old, new information has suggested that the band is looking forward to Volume #2. Keith Richards tells The Guardian that the original album happened by accident, and the bulk of it was recorded in just two days. Also suggested was late keyboard player Ian Stewart was sending a message from above.

With new reports now suggesting that volume 2 is in the works, it leaves a lot up for discussion in terms of the material that may or may not be released. According to the band, they were also recording an entirely new album of material, which would conflict the reports of a second cover album to follow this one. In terms of rock ‘n roll, anything is possible, right?

It should also be noted that Mick Jagger just had his SEVENTH child — no word on if this will affect the band’s ability to create or finish an album.

Is a KISS Reunion Tour On The Horizon?

Is there a KISS reunion tour on the horizon? According to Ace Frehley, there is a slight possibility of it happening! Ace stated in an interview today that he is entertaining an idea that KISS could jump back on the reunion tour bus with him on it, however would be ‘fine’ if it didn’t happen. Other frontman Paul Stanley was only fuel to the fire of this news, as he was a guest feature on Ace’s solo album.

He told an interviewer that the relationship between them was never as poor as it was made out to be, or perceived by the public eye. Throughout his founding of the band, Ace was in the band from 1973 to 1982, leaving and then returning over a decade later, only to leave again.

Ace tells his interviewer that while the band DOES have disagreements and things are often said, they’ve always been friends with him, just like he’s always been a friend to them. Adding into the fact that there were times in which the members didn’t talk, they can’t overlook the fact that they created something that above all else, withstood the ultimate test of time.

“Rumors are rumors” he says and that he ‘hasn’t been contacted’ If it could be done in a way that would end the career of KISS as a whole in a great way, he’d like to do it.

“Those guys run the show these days. I’m doing my thing and they’re doing their thing. If it happens it would be great. If it doesn’t I’ll be fine and they’ll be fine”, he says.

What do you think? Would you like to see KISS reunite one more time? What would you do if you were able to see them one last time?!
