Ministry is back with a new record HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES due out March 1, 2024 and a new single "Just Stop Oil" streaming right now.
"Just like you or anybody else, I'm simply a passenger in this lifetime," says Ministry's Al Jourgensen. "I'm watching social changes, political changes, and economic changes, and I comment on them because I do have a First Amendment right.
"A lot of people say artists and athletes should shut up and play ball. No, I'm on this trip too. If I see something, I say something. That reflects on where each album goes. Instead of staying sedentary and singing about broken relationships, inner turmoil, or whatever is hurting this week, I comment on what's going on from the perspective of a fellow passenger."
HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES features additional guest spots from Corrosion Of Conformity's Pepper Keenan on "Goddamn White Trash", Gogol Bordello's Eugene Hutz on the song "Cult of Suffering", and long-time collaborator and Lard companion Jello Biafra on "Aryan Embarrassment". Pre-orders are available here.
