The second Nine Inch Nails EP of original material following Broken (1992), it marks longtime collaborator Atticus Ross's first appearance as an official member of the band.

Not The Actual Events is the first new NIN music since Hesitation Marks (2013). He also explained his decision to not release a full album as this was the length of the complete story he wanted to tell. At the time of release, there have been five different versions of the album cover art released.

It has been pressed on a single sided 180 gram vinyl. Made to be played loud. Originally meant for release in December 2016, which is also the date printed on the hype sticker. Printed inner sleeve with lyrics is included however the vinyl is in a separate plain white poly lined sleeve from the factory

A decade ago Nine Inch Nails unleashed fifth album ‘Year Zero’ on their baying audience. Marking the last time Trent Reznor’s project had created an album as a cohesive entity, rather than the free-for-the-fans playground of ‘The Slip’, instrumentals ‘Ghosts I-IV’, or the impeccably curated career-revisiting of ‘Hesitation Marks’. Year Zero’ was a concept album, set in 2022, surrounding an increasingly militarised police-state of future America, blighted by terrorism with its populace subjected to invasive surveillance and inescapable brainwashing.

Nine Inch Nails will release a new EP, 'Not the Actual Events,' before the year is up. They have also announced a reworking of 'The Fragile. It contains 37 instrumental, alternate and unreleased songs, many of which reportedly have never been released elsewhere. The Fragile occupies a very interesting and intimate place in my heart, Reznor said in a statement.

Nine Inch Nails has released a five-track EP titled Not The Actual Events. This is the first new music release from NIN since 2013's Hesitation Marks and first EP since 1992's Broken. The album finds frontman Trent Reznor teaming up with frequent collaborator Atticus Ross. There are also guest appearances from Trent's wife, Mariqueen Maandig, on "She's Gone Away," Dave Grohl on "The Idea of You," and Dave Navarro on "Burning Bright (Field on Fire)

The EP finds Reznor and now official bandmate Atticus Ross taking an unexpected left turn from 2013’s Hesitation Marks and sounding unrecognizable from their current film work. It’s an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record that we needed to make says Reznor  .

A “Digital + Physical Component” package was available solely for purchase through the Nine Inch Nails official web store for a limited time. Purchasing this version included the instant download of the WAV EP and a “physical component” which shipped later.

The physical component contains six 10x7 inch color printed cards which contain song lyrics and EP credits, along with a 9.5x6.5 inch x-ray-like print of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross with their eyes scratched out, all sealed in an unmarked black envelope with a cautionary sticker on the back side. The package and all the contents also happen to contain a fine layer of black toner dust, which (as indicated on the cautionary sticker) will make a mess when opened. (See images for details).

According to the official NIN website, “The intention of this record is for it to exist in the physical world, just like you.”
