"It's kind of like a little more of a punk rock 'Mechanical Animals' [Manson's blockbuster 1998 album]," Ramirez said in a recent backstage interview with Spin. "Without sounding too pretentious -- I don't even know what that means! I don't want to speak for Manson, but it's definitely great. It's fantastic. It's our best record yet, I think. I mean, everyone always says that, but I think this is our best work so far."
Ramirez claims that the album is "almost done" and will "probably be out next year." It will serve as a follow-up to Manson's 2009 effort 'The High End of Low,' which didn't make a significant impact but actually earned a fair amount of critical accolades.
The upcoming record, which is still untitled, will be Manson's eighth full-length affair. The once ultra-controversial artist has toned things down throughout the past decade by focusing on visual art, writing and working as an actor and director for various films between albums.
