Marilyn Manson just dropped his second single from his upcoming new album ”We Are Chaos”. The album releases tomorrow, September 11th.
The new single is called ”Don’t Chase The Dead” and you can view the video for the new track below.
Manson was recently interviewed by Consequence Of Sound and said “It sounds like the end of the world, in a way. That really was what I was trying to capture. We’ve sort of painted ourselves into the end of the world as human beings, but I think there is a hope in it. And there’s always a hope in art, or you wouldn’t make art. You can’t be a nihilist and an artist at the same time, it’s not possible.”
While talking about the album Manson stated, “When I listen to We Are Chaos now, it seems like just yesterday or as if the world repeated itself, as it always does, making the title track and the stories seem as if we wrote them today.
“This concept album is the mirror Shooter and I built for the listener – it’s the one we won’t stare into. There are so many rooms, closets, safes and drawers. But in the soul or your museum of memories, the worst are always the mirrors. Shards and slivers of ghosts haunted my hands when I wrote most of these lyrics.”
“Making this record, I had to think to myself, ‘Tame your crazy, stitch your suit – and try to pretend that you are not an animal,’ but I knew that mankind is the worst of them all. Making mercy is like making murder. Tears are the human body’s largest export.”
You can pick up ”We Are Chaos” tomorrow!
