Marilyn Manson Premieres “We Are Chaos” Video

Marilyn Manson has premiered a new video for the title track of his new album “We Are Chaos.” That effort will be released on September 11.

“We Are Chaos” Track Listing:

01. “Red Black and Blue”
02. “We Are Chaos”
03. “Don’t Chase the Dead”
04. “Paint You With My Love”
05. “Half-Way & One Step Forward”
06. “Infinite Darkness”
07. “Perfume”
08. “Keep My Head Together”
09. “Solve Coagula”
10. “Broken Needle”

Manson said the following about the new record:

“When I listen to ‘We Are Chaos‘ now, it seems like just yesterday or as if the world repeated itself, as it always does, making the title track and the stories seem as if we wrote them today. This was recorded to its completion without anyone hearing it until it was finished. There is most definitely a side A and side B in the traditional sense. But just like an LP, it is a flat circle and it’s up to the listener to put the last piece of the puzzle into the picture of songs.”

“This concept album is the mirror Shooter [Jennings] and I built for the listener – it’s the one we won’t stare into. There are so many rooms, closets, safes and drawers. But in the soul or your museum of memories, the worst are always the mirrors. Shards and slivers of ghosts haunted my hands when I wrote most of these lyrics.”

“Making this record, I had to think to myself: ‘Tame your crazy, stitch your suit. And try to pretend that you are not an animal’ but I knew that mankind is the worst of them all. Making mercy is like making murder. Tears are the human body’s largest export.”

Marilyn Manson Photo Book “21 Years In Hell” To Be Released In June

A new Marilyn Manson photo book titled “21 Years In Hell” is set to be released in June via Reel Art Press. The book will feature over 350 classic and previously unpublished photos from the frontman’s photographer Perou, as well as some text taken from a conversation between the duo in which they discussed their work and friendship. Pre-orders can be found HERE.

Perou commented:

“I often get asked, ‘Who was your favourite person to photograph?’ or ‘Who is the best person you’ve photographed?’. It’s always ‘Marilyn Manson.’ Which is just as well, considering how many times I’ve photographed him.”

Manson added:

“I just remember the first time you showed up you had more rings than me. You look still, and did at the time, like you were going to be in that movie Romper Stomper: bomber jacket, high laced boots, fully British, barely understandable.”

“I became automatically comfortable around you and that’s the most important part.”

Perou continued:

“Probably all music photographers wanted to be in a band … I’ve always enjoyed dressing up and used to enjoy being the center of attention. Sometimes that’s been a problem; when you turn up looking cooler than the ‘talent’ but I never turned up looking cooler than Marilyn Manson, ever.”

Marilyn Manson Wants To Cover “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” With Brandi Carlile

It appears Marilyn Manson is hoping to record a cover of Judy Garland‘s “Somewhere Over The Rainbow“ with Brandi Carlile. Carlile revealed the news during a recent interview on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music show.

Carlile said the following:

“Marilyn Manson wants to record ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow‘ with me. He’s been texting me about it.”

She also added:

“Judy Garland just makes me smile. Just to me, she’s everything gay. Just everything. When I listen to ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow,’ I feel happy but I don’t feel happy in contrast or contrary to the way I’m naturally feeling. I just feel like I can maybe have a daydream.”

Carlile went on to say that Manson actually went to a tribute show that she played for Joni Mitchell:

“He came, and he cried so hard. He had all his makeup down his face, and turns out he’s the biggest Joni Mitchell fan on the face of the planet.”
