MINISTRY-AMERIKKKANT-ALBUM-COVER_lo_1I am not much of a political commentator as I try to stay away from that topic, but one thing is for sure and that is I am not afraid to report on it. Ministry is one of those bands that has never shied away from dabbing in politics and you can see that in their catalog or even their upcoming release AmeriKKKant which is slated for release on March 8, 2018 via Nuclear Blast. In fact the video that the band has delivered to us to keep us occupied until the actual release in Antifa is evidence enough that they dabble a bit. When talking about the overall gist of the album singer and mastermind Al Jourgensen says, “This album, AmeriKKKant, will provide FEMA-type relief for the devastation ‘Hurricane Cheeto’ has brought upon us.” For those of you that don’t get it, hurricane cheeto is a reference to Donald Trump. The video itself is definitely politically charged as it features riot footage as well as footage of the band in ski masks. The video is as bad ass as the sound of the track itself and I cannot wait to hear the rest of the album. The band is going on tour in March to coincide with the release of the record and you can check out the tour dates below the video. If you’d like to pre-order the album, you can do so by going here.
