MARILYN MANSON To Release An Unreleased, "Legendary" Video From 1996
Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar came out on October 8, 1996. Now, a full 20 years later close enough to that release date, Manson will be re-releasing the album as an anniversary edition.
While there hasn't been talks about bonus tracks or anything like that, Manson tells Dazed that the release will include a video that was never released due to a variety of reasons.
“…We’re putting out a box set on October 20th, and it has a legendary video that I had to put into a safe for the past 15 years, for reasons that will be revealed when you watch it. I had innocently thought that it was acceptable to use it as sort of a bonus feature on my ‘Dead to the World‘ video for the ‘Antichrist Superstar‘ tour. However, the legal department and my management informed me otherwise. But now it is going to be seen by all.
I won’t say anything else to spoil it, just that it captured a moment in time, after I had just moved to Los Angeles. I was living with Twiggy [Ramirez] and I had just come off a tour where I got death threats every day. It’s an interesting portrayal of what was happening at the time, but strangely, it doesn’t seem any different than the way I behave now, except that I’m wearing a cowboy hat. That’s about it.”
This is 1990s Marilyn Manson we're talking about here, so whatever the hell this video is, I'm sure it'll be at least a little bit insane. He doesn't make it sound like a music video either, but something completely different… so we'll see what that's all about soon enough.
