Hello, everyone -- here is a brief roundup of what's been going on the last few months. Although Jeordie has parted ways with Marilyn Manson, he has been keeping busy behind the scenes. He and Chris Goss have been working on new music, with 11 songs written so far as per Chris' post on Twitter at the end of last year. Whether this is for Goon Moon or something new is not known at this time. Jeordie has also been devoting a lot of time to painting, something he had expressed an interest in awhile back. Hopefully prints will be available at some time in the future. Also a short student horror flick, "The Quiet Room", for which Jeordie composed the soundtrack, has been making the festival round. You can follow the film on Facebook for updates.
I know many of you are wondering when/if Hour of Goon will be back. Although they said they would be back in January, that did not happen. I do know that Feral Audio has since shut down, and I suspect that may have something to do with why HoG has not yet returned. If I hear anything definitive, I will let everyone know.
As always, thank you all for your continued support!
Marilyn Manson's entire US tour (with the exception of his performance at Knotfest on November 5th) has now been rescheduled for January because of injuries Manson sustained at his New York City show back in September. Tickets for all shows from the originally scheduled dates -- except Columbus, OH, which could not be rescheduled, and Phoenix, AZ which had to be moved to a new venue -- will be honored at the new dates. The new dates can be found at marilynmanson.com.
Due to Marilyn Manson suffering an injury during an onstage mishap in New York Saturday night, all shows from October 2nd (Boston) through October 14th (Houston) are postponed while he recuperates at home. The tour is currently scheduled to resume on October 15th in Grand Prairie, TX. Please contact your ticket vendor for details on refunds, etc.

As you probably know, Jeordie's been keeping himself very busy in between touring with Marilyn Manson, and among the numerous artists he's collaborated with during this time is UNKLE, with whom he also worked back in 2007 on the album "War Stories". Their newest release (August 18th), "The Road: Part I" features Jeordie on bass on the track "Looking for Rain" and on guitar on "Nowhere to Run/Bandits" (on which he has writing credits as well). Other guests include Mark Lanegan, Chris Goss, Troy Van Leeuwen and Leila Moss. The record is now available for purchase on vinyl and CD at bleep.com.
