Ministry announce new album, AmeriKKKant, share video for lead single, “Antifa”: Watch

on December 11, 2017, 11:06am

Industrial rock gods Ministry will unleash a new album on the world next year. The band’s first release on Nuclear Blast Records is entitled, AmeriKKKant, and is due out March 9th, 2018.

As is clear from the title, the album is very much influenced by the current political climate. According to frontman Al Jourgensen, the nine-track effort “will provide FEMA-type relief for the devastation ‘Hurricane Cheeto’ has brought upon us.” Further details in a press release state that the Jourgensen-produced record will focus on “the waning respect for the US 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.”

As a first listen, Ministry has shared the video for lead single “Antifa”. The chugging thrasher pulls no punches in its anti-fascist statements, with Jourgensen’s opening lines saying, “I’ve got something to say to you/ I’ll back it up with my fists/ Sick and tired with dealing with assholes/ That’s why I resist.” Take a look at what’s clearly trying to become the Antifa Anthem below.

Pre-orders for AmeriKKKant are going on here and via PledgeMusic. Find the album art and tracklist below.
