Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have collaborated on eight released film scores, two TV scores and the last six NIN albums, a 15-year partnership that combines atmosphere and melody, ambience and noise. They've won an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a Grammy and — in an improbable turn of events — a Country Music Association Award. The two could be basking in their success; instead, they're busier than ever. We met up with them at Reznor's new studio for a deep dive into the past, present and future of one of rock and electronic music's most revolutionary forces.

The new issue hits newsstands December 31st, but you can grab a copy now via our shop. (Stay tuned for collector's editions of the magazine.) See below for the rest of the contents.
