The SHM-CD features enhanced audio quality through the use of a special polycarbonate plastic and will also include [unspecified] bonus tracks. You can check out the details here if this interests you.
[11:18] Marilyn Manson's official myspace page has confirmed another European tour date: June 9th at Incheba Expo in Bratislava, Slovakia.
[12:16] Update: "We're From America" available now.
[08:46] Metal Hammer magazine has had a chance to preview two tracks from The High End of Low, "The Wow" and "Arma-God-Damn-Mother-Fuckin-Geddon", and you can read their very positive review of both here. Meanwhile, keep an eye on Manson's official website, where the track "We're From America" is expected to be made available for free download sometime today.
[15:37] The Euro dates keep trickling in. The latest to be added is a June 3rd performance at the Velodrom in Brno, Czech Republic. Buy tickets here. Marilyn Manson's myspace page has also added a show to take place at the Coliseum in Porto, Portugal on June 17th. No ticket info on this one as yet.
[05:33] Some great news to kick off the work week: You'll be able to get your first taste of "The High End of Low" (now scheduled for a May 26th release?) this Friday, March 27th, when the track "We're From America" will be made available for free download at Marilyn Manson's official website. It will be available as a digital single on April 7th. It is also reported that "Arma-goddamn-motherfucking-geddon" hits the radio airwaves on April 13th. Read the full article at this location.
[10:23] With "The High End of Low" just two months away, this week’s issue of Kerrang magazine features one of the first full length interviews with Marilyn Manson to hit the press, and you can check out a scan and full transcript at this location. I’m not sure at this point to what extent Jeordie will be doing any press, but in the meantime, in order to keep everyone as informed as possible regarding the new record, I’ll be linking to whatever interviews/articles I find that give insight into the making of the album, Jeordie’s role, etc. Also, two new European tour dates have surfaced. The first one is on June 11th at Junge Garde in Dresden, Germany and tickets are available here. The second date is on June 22 at Theatre Antique in Vienne, France (can't make out whether or not tickets are currently on sale for this one).
[14:28] For those who haven't already stumbled upon it, Jeordie now has his own page on Twitter. Go here and start following! (And yes - it's really him.)
[08:52] While we eagerly await the arrival of "The High End of Low", don't forget about the other things that Jeordie's had a hand in over the last few months. His and Dave Sardy's awesomely amazing Gibb remix of Oasis' "Falling Down" is now available for purchase here, and then there's the new Adam Freeland record (due out in May) as well. You can check out a review of that here (thanks to ezekhiel for the link).
Also, pictures of Jeordie and Wes Borland at the ETP Festival afterparty, published in a Korean online music blog, can be viewed at this location.
[19:24] Just an update for anyone wondering about the title of the purported single as reported today in Metal Hammer. To date, no *official* compromises or changes have been made to the track's title and as far as I know it remains
"Armagoddamnmotherfuckinggeddon" "Arma-Goddamn-Motherfucking-Geddon" as revealed by Manson in his interview with "Revolver" magazine late last year.
[10:14] Metal Hammer music magazine reports today that “The High End Of Low” will be released in the UK on May 18th, with the single ["Armageddon"] being released a week prior on May 11th. For those of us in the U.S., this most likely means release dates of May 19th and 12th, respectively. Also, Sean Beavan talks a little about working on the record and reveals two new track titles here. The wait is almost over...
[04:14] Check out the new photo on Goon Moon's myspace page.
[16:36] Marilyn Manson will be performing on the main stage at Hellfest in Clisson, France on June 20th. Tickets are on sale now.
[18:35] Been dreaming about hanging out with Josh Freese and Jeordie (or Twiggy -- your choice!) while chowing down on fried chicken and waffles? Always wanted to visit Long Beach, CA? Well, if you have $10,000 to spare, or you can
sell enough drugs legally come up with that amount in the next couple of weeks, this is apparently for real. Oh yeah, and you get Josh's new CD and a bunch of other stuff as well.

This new "night of unusual musical pleasures" is hereafter scheduled to take place every first and third Thursday of the month and you can look forward to a few drink specials as well. Come hang out for a true auditory odyssey! For all further info and updates, keep an eye on either Goon Moon's or Birthday Twin's myspace pages.

[12:02] More information has emerged regarding the Adam Freeland record which I posted about awhile back. It's now confirmed that Jeordie plays bass on the record, and that it is set for physical release in May. Additionally, you can listen to one track, "Under Control", on Adam's myspace page, and he states in a new blog that he will start streaming the album in its entirety as a podcast in the next week or so (sign up on the page if you wish to have it sent to you direct). Go here to read the blog and get more details.

The release of the single "Falling Down", scheduled for March 9th in the UK, will feature the pair's "It's the Gibb Remix" and will be available in several different formats. You can get all the details along with pre-order information at Oasis' official website.

[18:26] According to a Mayhem Festival Press Release, the new Manson record is set to drop sometime in May. No confirmation from Manson or Interscope as yet, but since the band will be heading out on tour in June, a May release makes perfect sense.

No official confirmation from the Manson camp (or from Slayer's, for that matter), but I'd say this is pretty much a go. Don't have any ticket info yet, but as always, I will list it on the tour page as soon as I have it.
[16:17] Read a review of the "I'm Outta Time" remix here.
[11:40] More updates on the Manson record...
Rudy Coby posted a blog yesterday revealing the title of the first track to be "Devour". Read all of what he has to say here. Be sure to read the replies for even more info.
Then there's this quote, taken from one of his replies to his January 5 blog:
"And, did I mention what a God Twiggy is on this album? Well, I just did."
[15:25] While searching around for live performance stuff to add to the site's new youtube page, I came across some footage dating back to April 2002, when Jeordie, Josh Homme, Dave Ghrohl and Dave Catching got together to perform a one-off show with Nick Oliveri's Mondo Generator at the Troubadour nightclub in Los Angeles. First time I've ever seen any footage from this performance, and I thought I'd share it here for the benefit of anyone else who may not have seen it. Enjoy "Ode to Clarissa". (Jeordie's the guy in the suit and monkey mask).
[13:10] The Media page has been updated with links to the following: Nardwuar's December 2005 interview with Jeordie and Aaron North and a July 2007 Camp Freddy Radio Show on which Jeordie was a guest. In related news, this website now has its own page on youtube. This will be used as a place to archive videos from all over the internet, material I don't have on the Media page ï¿½ interviews, live footage, etc. ï¿½ into one convenient location. It's a work in progress and if you come across something you think should be added, send it to me. There isn't any exclusive/original video footage on the page at this point, but should I ever have anything of that nature in the future, that's probably where it will go.
[06:53] Been looking for a reason to get excited about the upcoming Manson record? Here you go:
"Without giving anything away - (I'm a Magician, after all, and keeping Secrets to someone who trusts me is my bond) - I'd say what stands out is how fucking raw and heart-felt the lyrics are on this one. Blood oozes out of the speakers on this one. Twiggy being back and allowed to fucking go crazy is a revelation - everything he absorbed being in A Perfect Circle or NIN but was held back from doing is laid bare here."
This is a quote from a myspace blog posted by magician Rudy Coby, a long time friend of the Manson camp who has had the privilege of hearing the new record several times. You can read the rest of what he has to say on the subject here. You'll need to scroll down a bit, as his description of the album actually appears in one of his replies to a fan.
Even if you have never been a fan of Marilyn Manson, the fact that Jeordie has obviously been pouring so much of himself into this record over the last several months should be enough of a reason to know it's not gonna suck. I have a feeling you won't be disappointed by giving this one a chance!
