Marilyn Manson has announced that he’s changed the name of his upcoming album.
The shock rocker has since been active on his Instagram page, posting a series of short, mysterious videos.
And in a brief red carpet interview at the premiere of King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, Manson gave an update on the record.
He tells Fabulous TV: “I just finished my new album and I’m going on tour in July. The record is called Heaven Upside Down.”
Speaking about the new material last year, Manson said: “It’s not very much in any way like The pale Emperor. The people who have heard the new songs said it reminded them of Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals – but with a new, different approach.
“It’s pretty violent in its nature for some reason. It’s not emotional in the same way. It’s got a chip on its shoulder. I can’t wait for people to hear it – I think they’re going to be quite surprised.”
In November last year, Manson released a brief teaser video which saw him tear pages from the bible and focus on the bloodied body of a man in a suit – thought to represent then Republican candidate Donald Trump.
Further album and tour details will be revealed in due course.
