"The song 'Cupid Carries a Gun' was the last track we just finished for my new album," says Manson. "The occult and witchcraft [are] so often used in cinema with a heinous disregard for even researching its origins. However, I liked the themes of Salem. It looks at the witch trials without being cliche like most modern films."
Marilyn Manson has announced their new album, The High End of Low, which will be released on May 26, 2009. The first single, "We're From America," can be heard on the band's myspace. A full press release detailing more information, including the band's reunion with Twiggy, can be found in the replies.
Former Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, who also spent some time with From First to Last, has joined Marilyn Manson's band. Manson remarked during the announcement, "He used to be in a really terrible band that he left because he felt that it was a destructive force in art."
