This is a (de)press release:

Marilyn Manson will release "The Golden Age of Grotesque" on May 13, 2003 on Interscope Records. The tracklisting is as follows:

This Is The New Shit
Doll-Dagga Buzz-Buzz Ziggety-Zag
Use Your Fist And Not Your Mouth
The Golden Age Of Grotesque
Ka-Boom Ka-Boom
The Bright Young Things
Better Of Two Evils
Obsequy (The Death Of Art)

The album is produced by Marilyn Manson and Tim Skold and mixed by Ben Grosse. The first single will be "mOBSCENE."

Marilyn Manson takes his inspirations from the glamour of 1930s Hollywood, the grotesque of Vaudeville to the extreme height of cabaret decadence and so-called "degenerate" art in Weimar Berlin just before its destruction.

Manson says, "This album is about expression. The imagination and personality of the individual cannot be trapped by small minds or defined by any one person. The genius of art finds sanctuary among children and madmen to survive. That, is who we are."

Marilyn Manson has collaborated with renown artist Gottfried Helnwein for the album's controversial artwork which is part of a greater series that will be exhibited in museums all across the world. For more info check and .

This tracklisting will still contain a few suprises, I couldn't give you all the details yet. You have to wait for the album to find your bruises.
