The EP was officially announced on July 13, 2017. It is scheduled to be released digitally on July 21, 2017, under Trent Reznor's label The Null Corporation, followed by the release of a physical component the week of August 8 and a CD release on September 1. A 12" vinyl version is also expected to follow. The EP's first track, "Less Than", was released digitally on July 13, 2017, with an accompanying music video directed by Brook Linder.

As quoted by Trent Reznor on nin.com: "ADD VIOLENCE finds Nine Inch Nails becoming more accessible and impenetrable at the same time.

Formats

Physical component

Akin to the first EP (with the exception of a CD release), Add Violence is also available as a digital download, a 12" vinyl and a physical component. Regarding the latter, the official description reads:

PROPER USE OF THIS RECORDING REQUIRES IT TO EXIST IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD, AS REAL AS YOU ARE. CHOOSING THIS PACKAGE GETS YOU THE DIGITAL FILES AND WE WILL SHIP THE ACCOMPANYING PHYSICAL COMPONENT TO YOUR RESIDENCE WHICH MAY PROVIDE ADDITIONAL CLARITY. VERY LIMITED SUPPLIES AVAILABLE.

Artwork

Add Violence back cover

The curious "scratch marks" seen in the various iterations of the Not The Actual Events cover artwork also faintly appear in the upper right corner of the Add Violence cover, seemingly lining up to become an eventual bigger picture.

On July 17, 2017, Trent Reznor tweeted an image of the back cover with the accompanying text: "NINE INCH NAILS: ADD VIOLENCE - BACK COVER AVAILABLE 21 JULY REMEMBER WHEN RECORDS HAD BACK COVERS? NO? MAYBE THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT."
