Industrial/metal godfathers Ministry have announced a new album, AmeriKKKant, due out March 9, 2018 from Nuclear Blast. This is their first new material since From Beer to Eternity in 2013. If their newest single, “Antifa,” is an indicator, they have veered sharply from the more metal leanings of the last couple albums, re-embracing the Industrial sound that made them big.
The video for “Antifa” also shows the band leaning heavily into political commentary. It looks like Al Jourgensen has a new muse in Trump. He hasn’t been this focused since his trilogy of anti-Bush albums Houses of the Mole (2004), Rio Grande Blood (2006) and The Last Sucker (2007).
In addition to the album and video release, the band announced a North American tour with support from Chelsea Wolfe. Ministry recently wrapped up a tour with Death Grips earlier this year.
