I know a lot of you have been hoping for more horror con appearances, and I'm happy to let you know that Jeordie will be taking a weekend off from working on the new Manson record with Tyler Bates and Gil Sharone to appear at Monster Mania Convention #33, taking place in Cherry Hill, NJ from March 11-13, 2016. It doesn't appear that tickets have gone on sale yet, but keep an eye out for further updates on the previously provided link to their Facebook page and also on their official website.
There has always been a strong relationship between heavy metal music and the horror genre, and Jeordie is part of a documentary currently in production which explores this relationship. "The History of Metal and Horror" sits down with Jeordie and an impressive roster of other metal musicians including Alice Cooper, John 5 and Kirk Hammett, along with horror film icons such as Sid Haig, Doug Bradley and Tom Savini. Check out the trailer here. The filmmakers recently launched a crowd funding campaign to complete the project and you can donate by heading over to their Indiegogo page. Help make this happen!

[14:25] Here's some news that will make a lot of fans very, very happy. Marilyn Manson did an impromtu Q&A last night on Reddit, during which he indicated that he will be working with Jeordie again on the next Marilyn Manson record (as you may recall, he did not play or write on "The Pale Emperor"). In part of his response to a question asking which artists he would like to collaborate with in the future, Manson stated that he planned on "maybe this week or next week when I've got some time, starting with Twiggy on going back to the core of where Marilyn Manson started." When subsequently asked whether he's ever considered doing a "throwback" record similar to "Antichrist Superstar" or "Mechanical Animals", he responded that this "will work it's way back into there, with a natural way of happening, now that he [Twiggy] and I are together. That'll come back". Click this link to go to the full Q&A.
