The back cover for Nine Inch Nails’ Add Violence EP has surfaced, and it features several words, including one the strongly hints at a connection to the concept surrounding NIN’s 2007 album Year Zero.
The words include Tolerance, Bias, Abort, Complexity, Absolute Conditional, D.O.F., Weak, Strong, Presence, S.A.S.C., 007516M, Structure, Function, Grasp, Sense, Oblivion, Apperception, Satisfaction, Inertia, Strive, Self-Destruct, Morale, Integrate, Isolate, Disrupt, Disorder, Evolve, Stall, Regress, Control, Monitoring World Active, Idle, Cycle, Deviation, 85122, Submission, Restrain, Release, Engage, Anxiety, Advanced Self Awareness, Amplify Chaoes, and most interestingly EST Terminate Event: 0222.
In the Year Zero timeline, 2022 is Year Zero (0 BA). BA is when America is “Born Again,” presumably on January 1, 2022.
