After promising last month that Nine Inch Nails would release an EP before their summer tour begins on July 23, frontman Trent Reznor seems to be hinting that it’ll happen later this week. According to Reznor, this new music will be the second in a trilogy of related EPs.

On Friday, he simply tweeted “NEXT WEEK,” which fans have taken as an indication that new Nine Inch Nails music is now just days away.

The first EP in this purported series, Not the Actual Events, dropped last December. The band’s last full-length record was 2013’s Hesitation Marks.

In an email to fans who had ordered pre-ordered vinyl copies of the first EP, Reznor wrote, “Did you know there’s a new top-secret Nine Inch Nails EP that will be released before the first shows we do this summer? Did you know Not the Actual Events was the first part of a trilogy of related EPs that will be released 6-8 months apart? Now you do. More information on this shortly.”

With these EPs, Reznor made Atticus Ross, his longtime partner in film scoring, a full-fledged member of Nine Inch Nails. Not The Actual Events was “an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record that we needed to make,” Reznor said at the time of its release. “It’s an EP because that ended up being the proper length to tell that story.”

On July 23, Nine Inch Nails will perform the FYF Fest in Los Angeles.
