Based on Marilyn Manson‘s upcoming engagements as part of this year’s Mayhem Festival, the musician born Brian Hugh Warner has got to be promoting something, right? I mean, why else would you want to spend the summer with Slayer, Bullet For My Valentine, and the slew of other acts tapped for Mayhem ’09?

Well, it now appears Mr. Manson’s upcoming appearance will in fact be in support of something – a brand new studio album. Entitled The High End of Low, the 15-track effort will be a coming of home of sorts; not only does Manson describe his seventh full-length endeavor as “very final…It’s a phoenix from the fire and a redemption resurrection,” but it will also mark the return of bassist Twiggy Ramirez, who last collaborated with Manson 2000’s Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death).

In addition to the The High End of Low‘s conveyed finality, it also said to be quite autobiographical. Per Manson (via Blabbermouth):

“It was a story that took place and I didn’t really know what it was going to be ’till it happened. I had to find out how it was going to end in order to end the record. This album left many scars, and I think they are good ones…

The album, which will be released on May 26th via Interscope, will be proceeded by its first single, “Arma… geddon”, on April 13th. However, fans will be able to get an early taste in the form of another track; on March 27th, “We’re From America” will be made available as a free download on MarilynManson.com.

As mentioned, Manson will take part in the Mayhem Festival this summer. He’ll also be heading to Europe for a headline festival run in June. In addition to Ramirez, the touring lineup will consist of keyboardist Chris Vrenna and drummer Ginger Fish.
