Marilyn Manson’s “Warship My Wreck” To Be Featured On “Dark Nights: Death Metal” Soundtrack

Marilyn Manson’s frequent collaborator Tyler Bates will be producing and writing music for DC Comics’ “Dark Nights: Death Metal” soundtrack. That effort will feature songs inspired by the comic series and animatic score sequences related to each issue. An animated video promoting “Dark Nights: Death Metal” was recently released and it features Manson’s “Warship My Wreck.” DC said the following:

“Get ready for the earth-shattering encore! The legendary team behind ‘Dark Nights: Metal’ and ‘Batman: Last Knight On Earth’ take center stage and reunite for one last tour. When the Earth is enveloped by the Dark Multiverse, the Justice League is at the mercy of the Batman Who Laughs. Humanity struggles to survive in a hellish landscape twisted beyond recognition, while Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman have all been separated and fight to survive. Unleash the beast and let the head banging begin!”

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 The book will feature over 350 classic and previously unpublished photos from the frontman’s photographer Perou, as well as some text taken from a conversation between the duo in which they discussed their work and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.”

Ozzy Osbourne Cancels 2020 North American Tour

Ozzy Osbourne has cancelled his 2020 North American tour with Marilyn Manson. The singer is taking the time off so he can continue to focus on his health.

The following statement was shared:

“OZZY’s 2020 North American “NO MORE TOURS 2” has unfortunately been cancelled to allow OSBOURNE to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year. This decision was made to accommodate fans who’ve been holding tickets for rescheduled shows and have been asked to change plans, some multiple times. Following promotional obligations for his new ORDINARY MAN album (out February 21), OSBOURNE will head to Europe for additional treatments.

“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” OSBOURNE said. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.

“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans. I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”

Refunds are available at the original point of purchase. All refunds, including fees, will be returned directly to the credit card used. Additionally, ticketholders who purchased “No More Tours 2” tickets will have first access to tickets when the next tour is announced.”

GoFundMe Launched For Juan Alderete (The Mars Volta, Marilyn Manson) Following Bicycle Accident

As previously reported, Juan Alderete (The Mars Volta, Marilyn Manson, etc.) recently suffered a traumatic brain injury after being involved in a serious bicycle accident. A GoFundMe has since been set up to raise money for medical bills.

Marilyn Manson commented:

“My friend and band mate, Juan, needs our help. And our energy. Please give whenever you can. Thank you.”

The following message was also shared on GoFundMe:

“Juan Alderete – beloved husband, son, brother, uncle, friend, bandmate and cat dad – has had the privilege of connecting with music lovers around the world through his remarkable talent as the bassist in Marilyn Manson, The Mars Volta, Big Sir, Deltron 3030, Dr. Octagon, Vato Negro, Halo Orbit and Racer X in addition to lending his bass lines to music by Lil Peep, Jonwayne, Juliette Lewis, B’z and many more.

On January 13, 2020, Juan was involved in a bicycle accident that—despite wearing a helmet and protective gear—left him with a serious type of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) known as Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI). He also suffered a fractured clavicle and spinal fracture.

And as many of you fellow musicians and artists understand, there is no paid time off or sick time for this type of work. The journey Juan and his family are about to embark on is a marathon, not a sprint; it is a long road and we want to be able to tap some of the best and most passionate medical professionals who are experts on TBI patients and their potential for recovery.

Physical, occupational and cognitive therapies are just some of what we’ll need to pay for in the coming weeks and months. In-patient care and therapy, special medical equipment and assistance are other expenses we anticipate in the longer term. And while we help Juan focus on recovering, he will not be able to work but of course the goal is to get him back to playing music, and talking pedals on Pedals and Effects with his partner in crime, Nick. Because the world needs Juan on bass just as much as Juan needs to play bass.

More about Diffuse Axonal Injury
Neurologists have a saying, “Once you’ve seen one DAI patient, you’ve seen one DAI patient,” which means there aren’t any two cases that are alike and the outcomes vary to the point where doctors are hesitant to offer an exact prognosis. Which means we’re ready to take on the challenge and offer Juan every opportunity for him and his brain to heal. And we need your help.

While the outcome is uncertain, Juan‘s family, friends and fellow musicians all agree that we must spend the better part of the next year offering him every single opportunity and resource we can so he can beat this and come back stronger than ever.

We have to advocate for him and be proactive with his care and treatments because – if you’ve ever had a prolonged experience in the healthcare system in the U.S. – you’ve experienced the lack of initiative that is so prevalent. If we want Juan to have the best chance at recovery, we have to draft that plan and get the resources ourselves.

We hope you’ll be part of his road to recovery – any small donation helps, and we will post regular updates here and on his social channels so you’re able to follow his progress.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Juan Alderete (The Mars Volta, Marilyn Manson) Suffers Traumatic Brain Injury In Bicycle Accident

Juan Alderete (The Mars Volta, Marilyn Manson, etc.) recently suffered a traumatic brain injury after being involved in a serious bicycle accident. The incident took place on January 13 and he is currently in a coma.

Alderete’s wife Anne issued the following statement:

“Hi everyone – this is Anne, Juan‘s wife. While I generally hesitate to share personal details on social media, it felt right to include all of you who’ve supported Juan over the years as friends, fans, fellow music (and food, cat, bike, Japan) lovers and musicians.

Juan was in a solo (no cars, other people) and very serious bicycle accident on 1/13/20 not far from our home. He – as always – was wearing a helmet and protective clothing but sustained serious head trauma in the form of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI); his form of TBI is Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) and as of today, he remains in a coma.

The only prognosis is to wait and see, as the brain is a complicated organ and the outcomes for DAI patients has a range as wide as the sea. While frustrating, it also allows for a world of positive outcomes so we can only hope for the best.

We know you have questions, concerns, thoughts to share, so please feel free to leave them in the comments (not DM please, sorry) here. We’re also very eager to hear from neurologists, medical professionals with experience in DAI and TBI, first-person accounts of similar trauma and outcomes – essentially any useful, factual and accurate resources that relate to Juan‘s injury. If you have any of these, please DM me (Anne) @tunatoast. [via Instagram.]

We will post updates here from time to time. Thank you all and please keep Juan in your thoughts. – xo, Anne”
