Marilyn Manson has officially introduced a new drummer to the group after they parted ways with their drummer back in March.

The new drummer, Brandon Pertzborn, was previously reported on in the new issue of Revolver. Manson apparently reveals Pertzborn is the new drummer, but now we have an official announcement.

Manson posted a photo with Pertzborn with the caption “me and my drummer Brandon Pertzborn.” Therefore, he kept it pretty clear.

Pertzborn has performed with a number of artists over the years, including Black Flag, Doyle, Suicidal Tendencies and HO99O9 who opened for Manson last fall.

Manson is currently working on the follow up to Heaven Upside Down, revealing he was finishing up the record on Instagram.
