In a brand new interview with NME TV, Marilyn Manson reflects on his “intimacy” issues, why he’s not the suicidal type, and why he deserves a Grammy for having been blamed for so many high-school shootings. Watch the chat in two parts below.
MARILYN MANSON‘s new album, “Born Villain”, sold 38,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on May 1 via Cooking Vinyl and Manson‘s own label Hell, Etc.
MARILYN MANSON‘s previous album, “The High End Of Low”, opened with 49,000 units back in May 2009 to debut at position No. 4 on The Billboard 200 chart. This was roughly half of the first-week tally registered by 2007’s “Eat Me, Drink Me”, which landed at No. 8 after selling 88,000 copies.
MARILYN MANSON‘s 2003 album, “The Golden Age Of Grotesque”, entered the chart at No. 1 with first-week sales of 118,000.
Marilyn Manson‘s new video, “No Reflection”, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Lukas Ettlin, who previously worked with Manson on the award-winning “Personal Jesus” video.
Manson last September unveiled a new music video for the song “Born Villain” directed by actor Shia LaBeouf.
Drummer Ginger Fish (real name: Kenneth Robert Wilson) quit MARILYN MANSON in February 2011 and has since joined ROB ZOMBIE. He has been replaced by the Los Angeles-based drummer Jason Sutter.
MARILYN MANSON in 2009 parted ways with longtime record label Interscope following the disappointing sales performance of “The High End Of Low”.
“The High End Of Low” was Manson‘s first album with longtime bassist Twiggy Ramirez since 2000’s “Holy Wood”.
