California-based act NEW RISING SON has inked a deal with the French label Deadlight Entertainment.
NEW RISING SON is the band of Matthew Roberts, who claims to be son of notorious killer Charles Manson.
Now 43 years old, Matthew Roberts — who bears a strong resemblance to Manson — says his biological mother, Terry, revealed that she had been raped by Manson in a drug-fueled orgy back in 1967.
After his birth, his young mother gave him up for adoption.
“I didn’t want to believe it. I was frightened and angry. It’s like finding out that Adolf Hitler is your father. I’m a peaceful person — trapped in the face of a monster,” Roberts told The Sun newspaper.
Roberts says he has confirmed his mother’s story through letters with Manson, The Sun reported.
“He sends me weird stuff and always signs it with his swastika. At first I was stunned and depressed. I wasn’t able to speak for a day. I remember not being able to eat.”
A year after Roberts‘ birth in 1968, Manson and his “family” of followers committed nine murders in Los Angeles over five weeks, including the stabbing of pregnant actress Sharon Tate. She was the wife of film director Roman Polanski.
NEW RISING SON‘s album, “Honey”, will be released in January. A song from the CD, “Rain”, is available for streaming in the YouTube clip below.
