Marilyn Manson has unveiled the dark new video for the track “Don’t Chase the Dead.”

The video features The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus and Manson as some sort of heist team, but things take a turn for the gory and deadly by the video’s end. Oh, and this seems like a good time to make it clear that there’s some NSFW language and imagery in this video, so consider yourself warned.

“Don’t Chase the Dead” is the second single from Manson’s 11th studio album We Are Chaos. The album was produced by Manson and Shooter Jennings. In a statement on the album, Manson said, “Shooter and I had a shared love for Bowie’s era with Brian Eno. I wasn’t afraid to try new things with him writing the music. He also helped me to be unafraid to try old things. As a producer, he really pushed me to be both new and still true to what the core of Marilyn Manson is. His perspective added the trans-dimensional element that I was always looking to tap into. When I listen to WE ARE CHAOS now, it seems like just yesterday, or as if the world repeated itself, as it always does, making the title track and the stories seem as if we wrote them today.”

We Are Chaos is out now and is available in various formats here.
