Marilyn Manson will release new album 'WE ARE CHAOS' on September 11th.
The metal icon released previous album 'Heaven Upside Down' in 2017, and Clash met the American star in Berlin for an in-depth profile.
New album 'WE ARE CHAOS' was produced by Shooter Jennings, with Marilyn Manson sharing the title track in full.
Out now, new single 'WE ARE CHAOS' features a video pieced together by Matt Mahurin.
Marilyn Manson comments...
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 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.
Tune in now.
