Manson said the following:
“Either way [the election] goes, the visuals are meant to create contemplation. Because it’s obviously bigger than just tomorrow. It’s about the desperate acts of people who believe something that is preached by an unbeliever. Right now we’re in such a state of confusion when it comes to religion, politics, sexuality, and how they all tie together, and it’s being turned into a circus and a sideshow—and that’s something that I’ve been described as a ringleader of. It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements.”
“SAY10” is expected to be released on Valentine’s Day.
Marilyn Manson was recently interviewed by Dazeddigital.com, and revealed that he will be releasing a 20th anniversary edition of his 1996 album, “Antichrist Superstar“ on October 20. He also offered some more insight into his new album “SAY10,” which is set to be released on Valentine’s Day (February 14) next year. You can read what he had to say about those below.
On 20th anniversary edition of “Antichrist Superstar“ :
“…We’re putting out a box set on October 20th, and it has a legendary video that I had to put into a safe for the past 15 years, for reasons that will be revealed when you watch it. I had innocently thought that it was acceptable to use it as sort of a bonus feature on my ‘Dead to the World‘ video for the ‘Antichrist Superstar‘ tour. However, the legal department and my management informed me otherwise. But now it is going to be seen by all.
I won’t say anything else to spoil it, just that it captured a moment in time, after I had just moved to Los Angeles. I was living with Twiggy [Ramirez] and I had just come off a tour where I got death threats every day. It’s an interesting portrayal of what was happening at the time, but strangely, it doesn’t seem any different than the way I behave now, except that I’m wearing a cowboy hat. That’s about it.”
On his new album “SAY10”:
“Tyler Bates and I did it over the past three months, right before this tour [his summer run with Slipknot] started. It is, I would say, the last thing people would expect after hearing the previous album, ‘The Pale Emperor‘. And it’s also, coming from the people who I’ve played it to, a combination of ‘Antichrist Superstar‘ and ‘Mechanical Animals‘ in feeling. I generally take the opinion of girls over guys, because you usually make songs to make girls like you.
That’s why you start a rock band. It’s inspired by all those things you do to make girls like you, all that passion and melodic pageantry, like Bowie, but also the utter disregard for rules, like Ministry and all the bands that shaped the first album I made. It wasn’t my intent to go backwards. Everything goes in a full circle and it just becomes, without cannibalising work from the past, the same thing, which is ultimately you.
I’m a little over-anxious to release it, so it was done very quickly, but it is by far the most thematic and over-complicated thing that I’ve done. In a way, it’s deceptively delightful to strangers. It’s sort of like the old saying that the devil’s greatest secret is that people don’t believe he exists.”
He also added the following about why he chose to release it on Valentine’s Day:
“Well, I decided on February 14. I’m not really sure what my obsession with Valentine’s Day is, because I never really enjoyed the holiday personally, but for some reason it’s always been part of the fabric of my artistic expression. Maybe someday I’ll figure it out.”

Marilyn Manson was recently interviewed by Rolling Stone, and he offered some insight into his new album “Say10,“ which is expected to be released on Valentine’s Day 2017 (February 14). You can read what he had to say below:
“It’s not very much in any way like ‘The Pale Emperor‘. The people who have heard the new songs said it reminded them of their favorite parts of ‘Antichrist Superstar‘ and ‘Mechanical Animals‘ – but with a new, different approach. It’s pretty violent in its nature for some reason. And it’s not emotional in the same way. It’s got a chip on its shoulder. I enjoyed doing it. I can’t wait for people to hear it. I think they’re going to be quite surprised.”
Last night (August 13), I attended the Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, and Of Mice & Men concert in Concord, CA and it was a great show.
Of Mice & Men kicked of the night with a rockin’ performance. The band opened with their track “Public Service Announcement” and powered through a high energy set which also included songs like “Bones Exposed” and “Never Giving Up.” The higlights of their set included their new song “Pain” and their closing track “The Depths.”
Marilyn Manson took the stage next for a unique stage show, which included burning Bibles, singing on stilts, and more. Manson was on point during his whole set, which is awesome considering fans have said that some of his past performances on this current tour have been a bit off. Higlights from his set included his cover of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams,” “The Dope Show,” and his closing song “The Beautiful People,” which was sung from the crowd.
Then the headliners of the evening, Slipknot took the stage. The band opened with “The Negative One” and just slaughtered the stage from there. The band’s set up was similar to last year’s, except this time it featured a big screen playing interesting clips, instead of the giant goat head. Corey Taylor still performed at high capacity, despite wearing a neck brace due to recent spinal surgery. The rest of the band rocked as hard as ever as well, making the whole unit a force to be reckoned with. Higlights from their set include “Eyeless,” “The Heretic Anthem,” “Before I Forget,” “Killpop,” and the finale “Spit It Out.”
Marilyn Manson and Shooter Jennings have premiered a new video for their cover of David Bowie’s “Cat People.” This song is from Jennings’ Giorgio Moroder tribute album, “Countach (For Giorgio),“ which is available now.
Marilyn Manson cancelled his set at the Centre Vidéotron in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada last night (July 21) with Slipknot. “Illness” was blamed for the cancellation.
The following was posted on Manson’s social media:
From Marilyn Manson Management: Unfortunately, Marilyn Manson had to cancel tonight’s performance in Quebec due to illness. The tour continues Saturday Jul 23 in Syracuse, NY.
