MARILYN MANSON: 'Hey, Cruel World...' Video Released

"Hey, Cruel World...", the new video from shock rocker MARILYN MANSON, can be seen below. The clip features up-close footage of the band in a stunning black-and-white live montage from from Milan to Brixton to Los Angeles on Manson's 2012 international tour. The video was produced with music video and documentary director Tim Mattia, who creates unique films for AmpRockTV — a series of films from innovative artists such as MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE and KORN.

"I first met Manson in March of this year when he took part in the series 'The Words' for AmpRockTV," says Mattia. "It was amazing to work with such an iconic artist, so when he asked me to film some live shows with him, I obviously said yes.

"We shot over four nights in the U.K., Italy and America, capturing what I think is one of the world's most exciting live performers at his best."

Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie will kick off their "Twins Of Evil" tour tonight, co-headlining the first day of the Desert Uprising festival in Phoenix, Arizona. Expect defiant rock 'n' roll showmanship in the form of these unholy rollers — arguably the most exciting rock tour this year. Debauchery, theatrics, and a full-on assault on all the senses await fans as part of a mammoth U.S. and 10-country European tour.

"Hey, Cruel World..." comes off MARILYN MANSON's new album, "Born Villain", which sold 38,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on May 1 via Cooking Vinyl and Manson's own label Hell, Etc.
