As he prepares to hit the road with Rob Zombie for their Twins Of Evil Tour, Marilyn Manson is also going to release some more music. Manson plans to release a "special edition" of his latest record Born Villain this fall, probably "shortly before the holiday," which will have two and possibly three additional songs as well as special packaging.
"They're not just acoustic versions or demos or stuff like that," Manson says. "They're really good songs that were going to go on the album but I didn't want the album to be too long. I knew there would be the opportunity to use them for something."
Manson says the deluxe edition will also include additional artwork and "have a lot of things in it. There's gonna be a book and stuff like that."
As for the Twins Of Evil Tour, Manson says he and Zombie are "a good match because he does the comic book/slasher element of horror or whatever you might call our cinematic sort of view of music, and I handle the more psychological and political. He might be more Halloween,' the movie; I'm more of The Manchurian Candidate or Rosemary's Baby- two different outlooks on things."
Manson also promises a "bombastic" show and says he's feeling a little competitive about the double billing. "Yeah, (Zombie) has a challenge ahead of him," Manson cracks. Zombie, meanwhile, is also looking forward to the tour, which rolls through the U.S. until Halloween night, before heading overseas for a 13-show run in the U.K. and Europe during November and December.
