Heaven Upside Down is the tenth studio album by American rock band Marilyn Manson, released on October 6, 2017 by Loma Vista Recordings and Caroline International. The record was originally due for release on Valentine's Day, and had a working title of Say10. However, its release was delayed, principally due to the eponymous vocalist being unhappy with the quality of the record by that date, and also because of the band's touring commitments and producer Tyler Bates' schedule scoring films, as well as the death of Manson's father during production, to whom the album was later dedicated.
The album was recorded by many of the same musicians who performed on The Pale Emperor, including Bates and Gil Sharone. The band's longtime bassist Twiggy Ramirez did not take part in recording sessions, despite Manson initially suggesting otherwise. Twiggy was dismissed from the band soon after the record's release, following sexual assault allegations made against him by a former girlfriend. He was replaced on subsequent tour dates by Juan Alderete. The Heaven Upside Down Tour has seen the band's vocalist injured on multiple occasions: he fractured his ankle after jumping off a stage, and was later crushed by a large stage prop. The latter incident resulted in the rescheduling of an entire leg of the tour.
"We Know Where You Fucking Live" was issued as the lead single on September 11. This was followed on September 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 these music videos have 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 number eight on the Billboard 200, and was the band's highest-charting album in over a decade in several territories, such as Australia and the United Kingdom.
This was the last album to feature Sharone, who departed the band after its release.
