Ministry madman Al Jourgensen is up to his old tricks and political ranting with the world debut of the video for "99 Percenters," the first single off the upcoming worldwide release of the band's "Relapse" album. Check out the video after the jump.

For "99 Percenters," Jourgensen teamed up with his native El Pasonian and co-conspirator, director and animator Zach Passero (Wicked Lake, Ministry, Lieslieslies, RevCo, Fire Engine). Says Jourgensen: “Hopefully this song and video will motivate people to take action against the Kleptocracy we find ourselves living in. I am in awe of the passion and motivation of the Occupy Wall Street movement and feel compelled to contribute what I can to inspire global citizens to continue to take to the streets in protest against the encroaching New World Order."

"Relapse," the upcoming release from Ministry, nears its official stateside CD release via AFM Records in conjunction with DisManic via E1 Distribution on "Metal Monday," March 26th, 2012. Ministry has the following upcoming tour dates:

6/17/2012 Ogden Theatre - Denver, CO
6/21/2012 Club Nokia - Los Angeles, CA
6/23/2012 Best Buy Theater - New York, NY
6/28/2012 The Vic Theatre - Chicago, IL
6/29/2012 The Vic Theatre - Chicago, IL

this song is a bit disappointing, but I heard the song Double Tap and it kicked ass. making a song about the 99% is kind of lame. i'm still gonna pick up the new album and this time, like Al states again, is the last album and tour. End it Al. End it!
