MINISTRY - Announces 16th Studio Album HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES!


As the world continues hanging on by a thread through pandemics, wildfires, climate change, social-political chaos and social media-fueled conspiracy theories, at least there’s MINISTRY to get us through. Industrial provocateur Al Jourgensen is ready to unleash his latest missives with MINISTRY’s groundbreaking 16th album, HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES, slated for release March 1, 2024 via Nuclear Blast Records.


Today, the six-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum act gives the first taste of the new material with the official release of 'Goddamn White Trash', featuring Pepper Keenan, a song that made its debut on MINISTRY’s headline tour earlier this year.


Over the course of 9 tracks, Jourgensen is righteously cantankerous as ever about a f***ed up world ripe for a boot up its ass. Like always, he's merely looking around at the same dumpster fire we all are, but he's got a microphone and uses it well to rage on about the state of the world.


“Just like you or anybody else, I’m simply a passenger in this lifetime,” says 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.”
