Marilyn Manson Releases ‘We Are Chaos’

In the chaotic world that we are currently living in, it is only fitting that we have new Marilyn Manson.

Manson’s new video for the single “We Are Chaos” dropped today in support of his upcoming album of the same name. This is the first album in three years from the controversial singer, following up Heaven Upside Down.

Video and Music.

The video is reminiscent of the weirdness of Pink Floyd’s The Wall. Manson delivers creepiness while delivering a message of the issues of the world we face.

The music itself is a bit calm compared to previous singles that people may be familiar with. It is a slow tempo with mostly clean guitars, piano, and strings. Lyrically, the song sounds like something The Killers would have written; try listening to it an imagining Brendan Flowers’ voice. You’ll see what I mean.

The chorus of the song has Manson chanting “We are sick, fucked up, and complicated. We are chaos. We can’t be cured.” This makes it sound like a darker version of “We Are the World”. To me, it reads of the hopelessness that is felt around the world today.

If you never thought that Manson would be the type of person to release a song that seems to have a slant of this kind, then you haven’t been paying attention for the last 25 years of his career.

We Are Chaos Album.

Manson’s 11th studio album, We Are Chaos, will be dropping on September 11th. Although the single is tame compared to his previous singles, I look forward to what the new album has in store. I enjoyed Heaven Upside Down a hell of a lot. While a lot of people may not agree, I think Manson’s music gets better with age. Hopefully in 2021 we’ll get an accompanying tour.

Stay up to date with news on We Are Chaos on Manson’s website and social media.

Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
