About this album

Born Villain is the eighth full-length studio album by American rock band Marilyn Manson. It was released worldwide on May 1, 2012 through Marilyn Manson’s own vanity label Hell, etc. via Cooking Vinyl Records. The album is the band’s first release since their contract with longtime record label Interscope Records ended in late 2009.

On May 2, 2012 Marilyn Manson appeared on the cover of the UK heavy metal magazine Metal Hammer, which featured an exclusive interview with Manson on the album, along with a new photo shoot of the singer. Manson also featured in NME and on CNN. The album has received generally positive reviews from mainstream music critics.

The album spawned two singles (“No Reflection” and “Slo-Mo-Tion”), and a pre-release short film entitled Born Villain. The band supported the album with the Hey Cruel World… Tour, and also with the Twins of Evil Tour, a combined tour featuring Manson and Rob Zombie. The album debuted at number ten on the Billboard 200.

In October 2012, Manson announced that Born Villain would be re-released as a special edition before the holidays. This version of the album will feature three additional tracks, additional artwork, a book, and more.
