New Marilyn Manson Album Out in 2011
Having already sold over 50 million records worldwide, Cooking Vinyl overcame fierce competition from several labels in the US and UK, both major and independent, to release what will be Marilyn Manson’s eighth studio album.
The global deal will see the album issued via Marilyn Manson’s own label – Hell, etc. – in a joint venture between Cooking Vinyl, with the album slated for release in 2011.
Parting ways with Interscope Records, the new partnership with Cooking Vinyl gives Marilyn Manson an unprecedented degree of creative control. The new set up will see the artist take charge of delivering the completed, mastered album and Cooking Vinyl handling worldwide distribution, marketing and promotion.
Famed for his originality and style, not only in the studio and on stage but also in his elaborate video and thought-provoking film-making, the latest studio instalment will again pair up Marilyn Manson and Twiggy Ramirez.
Marilyn Manson had this to say:
“We will always be our worst audience, until we stop being an audience and start being an artist. Any art is flesh and blood, no matter how you perform, decorate or display it. But we all want the passionate horror of that blood. And blood is what I am here to bring.”
The deal is a landmark signing for Cooking Vinyl, and follows the company’s huge commercial success with The Prodigy, whose Invaders Must Die was the best selling independent release in the UK and Europe in 2009.
