NINE Inch Nails look set to split after the release of their forthcoming album Year Zero Remixed, according to frontman Trent Reznor.

According to a report on Yahoo! Music News, the band – comprised of Reznor, Josh Freese (drums), Aaron North (guitar), Jeordie White (bass) and Alessandro Cortini (keyboards) – will part company at the end of the year (2007).

The band have already played their last gig together, in Honolulu in September.

A statement by Reznor says: “At this point, I want to switch things around a bit. I see other ways I can present Nine Inch Nails’ material in concert. Something more challenging, something new. I don’t want it to go stale.

“The idea of five guys making music for two hours, while it’s the culmination of fine-tuning over a lot of years, has got to change. I want to whittle things down.”

Mmm, not sure what he means but it’ll be interesting finding out.
