Marilyn Manson shows off his stage prowess in a new video for “ Hey, Cruel World... ,” the next single from his eighth studio album, Born Villain . The four-minute black-and-white clip features Manson performing the track live on stage in a variety of locations around the world during the singer’s recent international tour.
“It was amazing to work with such an iconic artist, so when he asked me to film some live shows with him, I obviously said yes,” says the video’s director, Tim Mattia , in a statement. “We shot over four nights in the UK, Italy and America, capturing what I think is one of the world's most exciting live performers at his best."
Manson is currently trekking across North America with Rob Zombie on their Twins of Evil Tour. Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson will support both bands on the outing, filling in for Korn frontman Jonathan Davis , who was forced to drop out of the tour due to “exhaustion.”
