Add Violence[2] is the sixth extended play (EP) by American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, released on July 19, 2017 through The Null Corporation and Capitol Records, two. It is the second of in a trilogy of releases, succeeding Not The Actual Events (2016) and preceding the band's ninth album Bad Witch (2018). It was produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

Moving away from the more aggressive nature of Not The Actual Events, the EP focused more on soundscapes and textures alongside their traditional elements, similar to that of The Fragile (1999), which resulted in more longform compositions. The release was promoted with two singles: "Less Than" and "This Isn't the Place", along with their accompanying music videos.

Add Violence received a positive response from critics, and reached number 17 in the US.
