American singer Marilyn Manson announce the release of his eleventh studio album We Are Chaos, on September 11th, 2020 (via Loma Vista Recordings). Co-produced by Manson and GRAMMY® Award winner Shooter Jennings, the record feels beautifully apocalyptic though completed pre-pandemic.


We Are Chaos is the follow up to Marilyn Manson’s 2017 album, Heaven Upside Down, which marked his seventh consecutive Top 10 debut on the album charts. Pre-orders for We Are Chaos are available here.

When I listen to the album 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 was recorded to its completion without anyone hearing it until it was finished. There is most definitely a side A and side B in the traditional sense. But just like an LP, it is a flat circle and it’s up to the listener to put the last piece of the puzzle into the picture of songs. 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,” says Manson of the album.

Singer heralds the record’s arrival with the title track and lead single We Are Chaos, released today. For the accompanying music video he teamed up with director/illustrator Matt Mahurin.
