Studio ace Michael Beinhorn is producing the new Marilyn Manson album. A spokesperson for Beinhorn confirms that the project is about halfway finished and that the record is on track for a late summer or early fall release.
Beinhorn had just completed the new Hole album immediately before taking on Manson, and has previously produced Soundgarden, Ozzy Osbourne, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Soul Asylum among many many others. Longtime Manson/NIN cohort Sean Beaven is supplying additional production.
Manson took a break from the record earlier this year to promote his autobiography, but the new album should be finished by the time he and his band head to Europe to play a series of festivals. The dates are scheduled for late June and July.
