Rob Zombie’s next album is due out later this year, and he is currently putting the finishing touches on his new horror film, “Three From Hell,” a follow-up to his 2003 film “House of 1000 Corpses” and its 2005 sequel, “The Devil’s Rejects.” His latest album, “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser,” was released on April 29, 2016. It debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, selling 40,000 copies in its first week and spending three more weeks in the Top 200. Zombie’s sixth solo studio album is also his sixth consecutive Top 10 album.

Marilyn Manson is working on the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2017 album “Heaven Upside Down.” “We Know Where You Fucking Live” was issued as the record’s lead single on Sept. 11. This was followed on Sept. 20 by “Kill4Me,” which went on to become the band’s highest-peaking single ever on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart. Four music videos have been released for the two aforementioned singles, as well as “Say10” and “Tattooed in Reverse,” two of which featured actor Johnny Depp. The record received positive reviews from music critics upon release, with several publications claiming it continued the creative resurgence which began with their previous album. It was also successful commercially, debuting at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, and was the band’s highest-charting album in over a decade in several territories, including Australia and the United Kingdom.
