Marilyn Manson's new album, "Mechanical Animals," is due out in stores this week, and the newest offering from one of the most dangerous artists in rock today will be sure to delight and dismay both fans and naysayers alike.
At the Video Music Awards last week, Manson made the live debut of his new single, "The Dope Show," and gave viewers a sneak glimpse at his forthcoming tour, which Manson said will be as large in scale and as controversial as his highly contentious Antichrist Superstar tour.
"This tour will be kind of a three-part [show]," Manson said in an interview with the MTV Radio Network, "almost like an opera. 'Mechanical Animals' will represent two parts, and 'Antichrist Superstar' will represent the third. I think it's going to be bigger and more dangerous and will probably cause more problems than before, but that's what I'm here to do, to keep people on their toes." [28.8 RealAudio]
Manson is due to start leading his "Mechanical Animals" to the slaughterhouse known as the road in October.
