Marilyn Manson Joins Billy Corgan on Stage at Soundwave

image

After 15 years, Billy Corgan and Marilyn Manson have buried the Courtney Love-influenced hatchet that had both musicians hating each other for quite sometime.

As their olive branch last year, Manson joined Corgan on stage during a Smashing Pumpkins gig in London to perform “Ava Adore,” from the Smashing Pumpkins’ fourth album, Adore.

Now, it looks like Manson and Corgan are really trying to rekindle their friendship with Manson, once again, joining Corgan on stage during Soundwave this past weekend in Sydney, Australia.

Check out the fanshot video featuring Corgan and Manson singing “Ava Adore” for the huge crowd at the festival.

But it seems like Corgan and Manson aren’t the only ones burying the lengthy hatchet. Courtney Love posted a picture on Instagram with both men claiming that they were burying the hatchet as well.

With all three artists’ busy schedule, it’s a shock that they had time to be hating on each other.

Corgan the rest of The Smashing Pumpkin released the second installment of their Teargarden by Kaleidyscope trilogy, Monuments To An Elegy, on Dec. 9.

Manson released his new album, The Pale Emperor on Jan. 20 and headed out on his “Hell Not Hallelujah” tour which wrapped up in February. He also guest-starred in the final season of Sons of Anarchy.

Love also had a guest starring role on Sons of Anarchy which led to a crappy interaction during the season premiere party which quickly made headlines. We guess their hatchet for that was also buried. Love most recently guest-starred on FOX’s hit drama, Empire, where she played a druggy singer on the verge of losing her record contract.

Marilyn Manson Brings Special Guests on Stage at Show

Remember how in 2013, a group of pre-teens playing heavy metal on the streets of New York caught the attention of everyone around them, eventually resulting in them signing a $1.7 million contract last Summer with Sony?

Well, the boys of Unlocking the Truth are back in action, or at least in the headline for getting the chance to perform on stage with a big time rock musician (though they were discovered by Eric Clapton’s drummer, Steve Jordan).

During a recent stop on his “Hell Not Hallelujah” tour in Philadelphia, Marilyn Manson invited the trio to join him on stage to sing Manson’s 1996 hit song, “The Beautiful People.”

Though they weren’t on stage playing their instruments, they were given the change to sing alongside Manson on the track.

Check out the fan shot video below.

Manson is currently in the middle of the “Hell Not Hallelujah” tour which will funnily enough wraps up on Valentine’s Day at the House of Blues in Las Vegas.

As for the guys in Unlocking the Truth, it was revealed in December they will be heading to Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH during the weekend of May 15-17, 2015 for Columbus’ annual Rock on the Range music festival (you know, “where rock lives”).

Unlocking the Truth will be playing alongside greats like Slipknot, Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park, Judas Priest and of course Manson.

Download Festival Unveil More Acts

The year hasn’t even ended yet, but Download Festival is already well underway with the unveiling the performers for next Summer’s event.

Previously, acts like Slipknot and A Day to Remember had been confirmed to take the stage during the weekend-long festival. Today, festival organizers have revealed a couple of more names that will head out to England to perform.

Muse, KISS, Mötley Crüe, Marilyn Manson, and Faith No More are the names that were added to the continuously growing line-up.

Muse will headline the event on Saturday night for the first time ever. Considering that the group have been around for almost 20 years, played stadiums, and call England home, it comes as a surprise that this would be their first time performing at the event.

“We’ve never played the festival before so it’s going to be really special,” the band said in a joint statement about their addition to the line up. Fittingly, the band’s upcoming new album will reportedly be released around the time of Download, at least according to frontman Matt Bellamy.

Also joining the line-up will be Faith No More. The last time they performed at Download was back in 2009, but this time will be different because they will be releasing a new album; their first in 18 years.

“The last time we played Download, the focus was on bringing back the past; now it’s all about the present and the future. Where it should be.”

Marilyn Manson has also been added to the growing list, but unlike his previous times at the festival, the shock rocker will be headlining the second stage rather than playing the main stage as a supporting act.

The final new addition to the line up will be Mötley Crüe who are currently in the middle of their “good-bye tour.” According to The Guardian, their appearance at Download will mark their last ever festival performance at a rock event before they officially call it a day on the band.

Download Festival will take place during the weekend of June 12-14, 2015 at Donington Park in England. Tickets for the event will go on sale beginning at 9 a.m. tomorrow (Nov. 20).

Marilyn Manson Goes on a “Binge” in New Song

manson

Marilyn Manson has taken a break from his acting career to return to what made him a house name: music.

The shock rocker has released a new song titled “Third Day of a Seven Day Binge.” The track will be featured on his upcoming new record which is set to be released in 2015.

The upcoming new album will not only be the follow-up to 2012’s Born Villain, but it will also mark Manson’s tenth studio album.

Earlier in the year, Manson spoke to NME about the new record which he revealed would be “very cinematic.” Considering who we’re talking about it doesn’t surprise us, but what’s surprising is his declaration that the record won’t be “about being pissed about the world.”

In the interview, he also revealed that the sound will be a mix of all the things he liked about his past record, but also mix some new elements.

“The redneck in me comes out in my voice, and it’s got some old blues mixed with the very hard elements,” he said about the change.

“I want to retain what I think is good about the past, what music I did and who I am. It’s not about being pissed about the world. It’s about realizing someone has to fuck things up.”

And he seems like the person to stir things up.

Recently, Manson has had a few television roles including a role as a supreme-racist in the last season of FX hit, Sons of Anarchy as well as a guest role on Once Upon A Time last year as “The Shadow” which kidnapped children.

As for the music front, aside from the new song, Manson contributed a song titled “Cupid Carries a Gun” to the soundtrack for WGN’s show, Salem. The song is used in the opening credit of the series.
