In March this year, Gil Sharone announced he was leaving Marilyn Manson’s band (opens in new tab) after five years behind the kit.

He said in a statement that he was quitting to “pursue other current and future projects,” adding: “Much love to Marilyn Manson (opens in new tab) and the homies I shared the stage with – and to the fans. It’s been a blast.”

There's been speculation as to who would replace Sharone in the lineup – and with Manson's The Twins Of Evil: Hell Never Dies Tour with Rob Zombie due to start in a few weeks, it looks as if it's Brandon Pertzborn has joined Manson's band full-time.

Manson posted a picture of the pair together on Twitter with the caption: "Me and my drummer Brandon Pertzborn." 

Pertzborn has performed live with various artists since 2014, including Black Flag, Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein, Suicidal Tendencies, Corey Taylor and is a member of US hip-hop outfit Ho99o9.

Fans will get a chance to see Pertzborn in action when The Twins Of Evil: Hell Never Dies Tour kicks off in Baltimore on July 9.

It was recently announced that Manson would star alongside Sharon Stone in new HBO series The New Pope (opens in new tab).
