Marilyn Manson announces tenth studio album, ‘SAY10’


Marilyn Manson may be in the muddle of a massive summer tour, but don’t expect the ‘pale emperor’ to take a break anytime soon. On Monday (July 18), Manson announced plans to release a brand new record in early 2017. Fresh off the stage from receiving his “Icon Award” at the 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards, Manson revealed the news in a post-award interview.

About two minutes into the interview with Alternative Press’ Ryan J. Downey, Manson made gesture asking for a pen or marker. Someone quickly appears with a permanent marker which Manson took and began to write “SAY10” on his hand. Downey at first thought it was a pun on “Satan,” but Manson quickly corrected him confirming that his tenth studio album will in fact be titled SAY10.

“It’s worse than a pun. That is the new Marilyn Manson recording coming out Valentine’s Day,” the musician corrected. Watch Manson’s full seven-minute interview below.

SAY10 is the follow-up to 2015’s The Pale Emperor. Currently, the shock rocker is in the middle of his massive, summer co-headlining tour with Slipknot. Tonight, the two groups are set to hit the stage at the AirCanada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The complete list of upcoming tour stops, including the reschedule dates, can be seen below.
