Ministry Reveals New Album Details

Industrial metal legends Ministry has announced that their brand new studio album, "Amerikkant," their first since 2013's, "From Beer To Eternity," will be released on March 9 through Nuclear Blast Records.

"This album, ‘AmeriKKKant,’" said Jourgensen, "will provide FEMA-type relief for the devastation ‘Hurricane Cheeto’ has brought upon us."

Produced by Al Jourgensen, recorded at Caribou Studios in Burbank, CA between January and May this year, and with striking artwork created by Mister Sam Shearon, the psychedelic, politically influenced and very much in-your-face AmeriKKKant’s nine tracks are rooted in Jourgensen’s unadulterated anger for what’s happening in America today - the waning respect for the U.S. Constitution, the growing acceptance of one’s opinions replacing facts, the decline of our leaders’ sense of morals, ethics and personal responsibility to the country and to their constituents, and the mad man in the White House.

AmeriKKKant track listing:

1. I Know Words
2. Twilight Zone
3. Victims of a Dlown
4. TV5/4Chan
5. We’re Tired of It
6. Wargasm
7. Antifa
8. Game Over
