Studio Reports: How To Destroy Angels
It seems like it was just earlier today that we confirmed the tracklist for How to Destroy Angels‘ upcoming EP An Omen. No, wait, that was today. In case you need a reminder, we had already provided you a leak of that tracklist last month, which ended up matching the EP’s official announcement. Today, still a month before An Omen‘s release, yet another leak has surfaced – this time regarding HTDA’s upcoming full-length LP, which was so far only mentioned by Trent Reznor as “coming early next year.” If a rather careless Last.fm user is to be believed, we may have the full tracklisting and title for the LP.
Earlier this week, a Last.fm user by the name of blank667 (an account which has since been suspended) registered several plays for a number of new tracks by How to Destroy Angels – now going by the name “How to destroy angels_“, for some reason. The tracks included four cuts already present on An Omen, and eight brand new ones – which would fit with Reznor’s description of the LP including “some” of the EP’s songs. After a fan alerted band member Rob Sheridan, most of the information was taken down from Last.fm, but the always-alert folks at fan forum Echoing The Sound had already captured it for the rest of us to see.
Check out the possible tracklisting and album title for HTDA’s debut LP below:
1- Keep It Together – 4:25
2- The Wake-Up – 1:42
3- Too Late, All Gone – 6:14
4- We Fade Away – 6:41
5- Recursive Self-Improvement – 6:27
6- Hallowed Ground – 7:14
7- And the Sky Began to Scream – 3:56
8- Ice Age – 6:55
9- On the Wing – 4:52
10- How Long ? – 4:02
11- The Loop Closes – 4:50
12- Strings and Attractors – 4:28
Of course, we remind you that this information is still unconfirmed. However, it fits well enough, and it wouldn’t be the first time that a Last.fm user accidentally leaks a tracklist. A quick Google search for the track titles will also have them showing up on more than a few cached pages, which demonstrates how quickly the information spread, and how it was subsequently deleted.
An Omen is set to be released on November 13th, with the tentatively titled Welcome Oblivion following sometime in early 2013. Listen to their first track, Keep It Together, here.
