Trent Reznor Forms New Band?

Speculation abounds that a project cloaked in mystery and shrouded in a cloak of enigma called How to Destroy Angels is actually the first new project from Trent Reznor since he euthanized Nine Inch Nails last year and ceased performing under the moniker.
The website for the group, www.howtodestroyangels.com, shows a picture of a woman who appears to be Mariqueen Maandig, the ex-West Indian Girl singer who got hitched to Reznor in 2009. An accompanying video clip shows a woman's hands playing a very NIN-sounding piece of music on some sort of a keyboard-like instrument. A self-titled EP is promised for the summer of 2010 and HTDA have launched a variety of social networking sites – you know, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube- under the moniker. That's so 2010 of them!
Many speculate this is Reznor’s new project because "How to Destroy Angels" was the title of the first single from the electronic band Coil, who are one of Reznor's biggest influences.
Do you find all this innuendo and teaser info to be frustrating? Or do you prefer Reznor to be straight up with the details?
