“The new record put simply has the ambition and determination of how I started making music in the first place,” Manson says. “It sounds like the first record in that it’s not afraid to do anything. I had to remove myself from my lifestyle and start fresh.”

Chris Vrenna, the Grammy–Award-winning musician and producer who was most recently the drummer/keyboardist for MARILYN MANSON, has left the band to focus on his growing film and video game scoring, production career and DJ outings as well as work on the forthcoming 2012 TWEAKER release.
“I’m incredibly proud of the work I did with MANSON and look forward to the release of [the new MARILYN MANSON album] ‘Born Villain’. I wish my brothers well, but with the recording largely completed, I felt it was time to return to other facets of my career, which involves production work, film scoring, and future musical collaborations,” explained Vrenna.
Vrenna rose to prominence in the early ’90s as a full-time member of NINE INCH NAILS, having been a permanent member of Trent Reznor‘s band since NINE INCH NAILS‘ inception and for the following eight years. His production and programming credits include the aforementioned NINE INCH NAILS, SMASHING PUMPKINS, MARILYN MANSON, GUNS N’ ROSES and most recently work on EVANESCENCE‘s self-titled 2011 album. Vrenna is also a sought after remixer working on tracks by U2, NELLY FURTADO, RAMMSTEIN and SLIPKNOT.
