Shock-rocker Marilyn Manson has shocked fans (in a good way) with a surprise announcement that his 10th studio album, titled Say10 (geddit, like ‘Satan’?), will be released on Valentine’s Day 2017.
Speaking with Alternative Press after receiving the Icon Award at this year’s Alternative Press Music Awards, Hanson says the follow-up to 2015’s The Pale Emperor will arrive on 14th February 2017, making it the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift for your
Manson is yet to release any material from Say10, but he’s been pretty busy since The Pale Emperor hit our ear holes, working with Korn’s Jonathan Davis on a “southern-sounding” acoustic blues project and being weird with his old mate Billy Corgan.
