Marilyn Manson To Perform At Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival

Marilyn Manson has been confirmed for Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival. That event will be held tomorrow (November 9) at One NRG Park in Houston, TX. This news seems a bit odd, considering the festival will mostly feature rap/hip hop artists, but a number of rappers have cited Manson as an inspiration over the years, so that may explain why he was booked.

Marilyn Manson Premieres New Video For His Cover Of “God’s Gonna Cut You Down”

Marilyn Manson has premiered a new video for his cover of “God’s Gonna Cut You Down.” That track is a classic American folk song that has been recorded by a number of artists including Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, etc. A limited edition picture disc vinyl pressing of the cover will be released on December 13 and can be pre-ordered HERE.

Marilyn Manson Lands Role In “American Gods”

According to Deadline, Marilyn Manson has scored a role in the new season of “American Gods.” The frontman will be playing Johan Wengren, the lead singer of a Viking death metal band called Blood Death. That fictional group will serve as a source of power for Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednesday. The third season of “American Gods” will debut on Starz in 2020.

Marilyn Manson On His New Album: “It’s Sort Of Like A Wax Museum Of My Thoughts, A Study Of The Chamber Of Horrors In My Head”

During a recent interview with Revolver, Marilyn Manson talked a bit about his new album, which he is working on with Shooter Jennings. According to the frontman, the effort is “sort of like a wax museum of [his] thoughts” and “a study of the chamber of horrors in [his] head.”

Manson said the following about the new record:

“It’s kind of like hitting the reset button. Hitting it a couple times, like when you’re drunkenly trying to change channels with the remote control, and your patience runs out. Which is a good metaphor for my life. Another one would be that, if I was born a gun, the problem that I have in life — or the plus side — is that I don’t know how to put the safety on. Which would be the best way to describe my current state of mind, in general.”

He continued:

“Last night, I was working pretty late in the studio, and we finished the sixth song. So, it’ll be out before the end of the year, definitely. I plan on going on the Twins of Evil tour, and I have an art book that I’m going to release, and I’ll probably have a bunch of exhibitions all over to go along with it. And then I’ll release the album after that.”

He also added:

“My guitar player, Paul Wiley, is also working on some stuff for it, as well. And I have a new drummer in my band, Brandon Pertzborn, so he’ll probably be playing on the record. And Jamie Douglass, Shooter‘s drummer, he’s also played on some stuff. Shooter and I also did a cover of ‘The End‘ by The Doors, for a new miniseries of ‘The Stand‘ by Stephen King, which I’m also going to be acting in.

I think that sort of kick-started our process for the album, and started us exploring different things. He’s very talented in so many ways, and working with him is very fluid. We have a totally different collaborative style than I did [with Tyler Bates] on the last two records.

Sometimes Shooter will already be doing something that I was going to suggest. We lock brains a lot together. You know, that could be because of drugs and alcohol, or it could just be because we’re in a small room together. Who knows? [Laughs] Or both!”

He also said the following when asked about a title:

“It’s still to be determined, but I think it’s the album that should be called Marilyn Manson. I’m in a mode in life where I wanted to tell stories with this record, and it’s sort of like a wax museum of my thoughts, a study of the chamber of horrors in my head.

All the romance and hope you can have in the world, here in the End Times where it can be a different kind of apocalypse for each person listening to the record. I tried to paint it with words, and Shooter with sounds, so you can see and hear all of your longing, your passion and despair.

That’s sort of a dramatic explanation of it. [Laughs] But it is full of drama. I wouldn’t compare it to any of my other records, but you hear a bit of everything — it’s like I’ve focused everything into one spot, finally.”
