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.”
