Marilyn Manson dropped by record label

Spike TV's 2008 Scream Awards - ArrivalsMarilyn Manson has been dropped by his record label Interscope after poor album sales.

Manson was released from his contract after ‘The High End of Low’ apparently only sold 121,000 copies in the US.

The singer told Metal Hammer: “We’ve just been released from our record contract with Interscope, so I think a lot of the creative control on which my hands were tied on a lot of choices – the music videos – things like that (has been regained).

“I was so restrained from the music that I wanted to make – what they would allow, they would put out, what ideas they would allow to be conveyed in these videos. At least half of my creative output has been squashed, so now I think people can expect a whole lot more.”

Manson also revealed that he is working on new music.

“I think it will be more badass,” he added. “I think it’s going to be more romantic maybe. Self abusive.”

Looking forward to that.
