Marilyn Manson Signs To Cooking Vinyl

Marilyn Manson is in bad need of a comeback. In the last five years he’s gotten divorced, (ex-wife Dita Von Teese said drugs, alcohol, and affairs were involved), released two poorly-performing albums and some poorly-executed videos, broken his engagement with Evan Rachel Wood, and gotten dropped by his label, Interscope. The first step — besides dropping the Kenny Powers obsession (see above photo) — is getting on a new label and releasing a new album. According to Billboard, Manson has signed a deal with U.K. independent label Cooking Vinyl. The deal is a 50-50 joint venture with Manson’s own imprint, Hell. Ominously, his new label “… has yet to hear the new record,” which he’s recording with Twiggy Ramirez.
