Industrial-metal legends Ministry will continue to support their critically acclaimed album AmeriKKKant with a full U.S. tour later this November, supported by synth-wave sensations Carpenter Brut. In anticipation of the trek the band has released a visualiser for the track ‘We’re Tired Of It‘, here:
“AmeriKKKant is a masterpiece and contains political and sociological ideas for the listener to consider. All Americans should really have a listen.” – Dave Navarro
Produced by Al Jourgensen, recorded at Caribou Studios in Burbank, CA 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 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.
For decades, the powerhouse of psychotic sound that is MINISTRY has overcome millions with releases such as Filth Pig, The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste, Psalm 69, From Beer To Eternity and a flood of others. Since the 80s, founder Al Jourgensen, has been combining elements of synth pop, punk, metal and even dub in a way that is instantly recognizable and has influenced many other bands.
With timeless classics such as Just One Fix, Thieves and Jesus Built My Hotrod, MINISTRY are one of a kind musical pioneers.
With six Grammy nominations to date, over 3 million records sold, more than 2,000 live performances, and movie soundtrack work on Hurt Locker, Artificial Intelligence, Matrix, Robo Cop and SAW, MINISTRY has been contributing to the music industry for over three decades.
