Release Date: He's claimed the LP would come out on Valentine's Day, but has yet to make a formal announcement.
Last year, Marilyn Manson returned to Louisiana, where he'd worked on 1996's Antichrist Superstar, to film the witchy, since-canceled TV show Salem, and something creative clicked inside him. "I found the supernatural element of the show to be very authentic when I lived in New Orleans: the hoodoo, voodoo, all the Santeria, it was all very much a part of my surroundings when I was making the music I made down there," he told Rolling Stone. "Maybe that kickstarted my mojo into making a new album." It will be a departure from the sleek goth-rock of his last album, 2015's The Pale Emperor, to make for a sound he has likened to the gnarliness of Superstar. "It's pretty violent in its nature for some reason," he said. "And it's not emotional in the same way. It's got a chip on its shoulder."
