Marilyn Manson makes plans for Massachusetts

With his “Twins of Evil” tour with Rob Zombie winding down, Marilyn Manson has announced plans to return to the road for headlining dates of his own in the new year. The veteran shock rocker will hit Boston for a show at the House of Blues on Saturday, January 26. Tickets for the show, which will also feature openers Butcher Babies. will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $45 and $60.

Earlier this month, Manson released his Slo-mo-tion Remix EP which is taken from the second single on his latest album Born Villain. Manson’s eighth studio album and first since 2009’s The High End of Low, was released in May and featured lead single “No Reflection”. It also contains a bonus track cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”, which he collaborated on with actor Johnny Depp.

“The new record put simply has the ambition and determination of how I started making music in the first place,” explained Manson in a press release. “It’s like the first record in that it’s not afraid to do anything. I had to remove myself from my lifestyle and start fresh.”

“It doesn’t really sound like any of my old records. In fact it sort of sounds like what I listened to before I made records — Killing Joke, Joy Division, Revolting Cocks, Bauhaus, Birthday Party… It’s very rhythm-driven. I think this will probably be the grandest concept record of all.”
