'''''Bad Witch''''' (also known as '''''[[Halo numbers|Halo 32]]''''') will be released on June 22, 2018. This album acts as the third installation of a trilogy, following the 2016 release of ''[[Not The Actual Events]]'' and the 2017 release of ''[[Add Violence]]''.
Like the two previous releases, ''Bad Witch'' will be available as a 12" vinyl, a digital download and as a CD.
An exclusive single run (limited to 2400), off-white vinyl pressing was also offered through Merchbar as part of the #SpotifyFansFirst campaign.
Despite the fact that the two releases that preceded it were marketed as EPs, ''Bad Witch'' is marketed as an album.[https://twitter.com/consequence/status/994607158418386946] It was officially announced on May 10, 2018. The official [[nin.com]] website description states:
<blockquote>"CONCLUSION. SHADOWS ON THE CAVE WALL."</blockquote>
In an interview with Zane Lowe[http://itunes.apple.com/us/post/sa.24db9a20-59e3-11e8-8359-8a5db8dbb4ce?app=music&ign-itsct=be1_con_zan&ign-itscg=10703],
[[Trent Reznor ]] somewhat explained the concept underlying each piece of the trilogy:
<blockquote>"Let me drop some cryptic information on you. The idea of this three EP thing was all to find truth in us figuring out who we are now and how we fit into the world. The first EP, ''Not The Actual Events'', was meant to be from a personal angry self-destructive reflection on that question and defining how I feel in a world, that feels stranger, part of that’s aging. Part of that’s because the world is getting weirder. Finding your place in a world that looks different every day little bit changes and reacting to that in the first EP through anger and self-destruction and setting a match to your life.
