How to Destroy Angels ‘Welcome Oblivion,’ and New LP, With Tape-Mangling Video

Trent Reznor How to Destroy Angels

When one circle closes, another begins. Which we think means Trent Reznor’s How to Destroy Angels project must be some kind of Möbius strip. In any event, the former Nine Inch Nails frontman’s group with wife Mariqueen Maandig, film score collaborator Atticus Ross, and longtime NIN graphic designer Rob Sheridan has unveiled a cryptic, vaguely sinister video for “The Loop Closes,” a circuits-bleeding rock koan from How to Detroy Angels’ recent An Omen EP.

At the same time, they’ve announced How to Destroy Angels will release their debut full-length, Welcome Oblivion, on March 5. No other details are available, but you can check out the video, which scrambles footage of Reznor, Maandig, and who knows what else, above. You should probably watch it on loop.
