The band’s 16th studio album arrives in the fall

Ministry [The Rock Revival]

Ministry have announced their new album HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES. The band’s sixteenth studio effort arrives on March 1, 2024 via Nuclear Blast Records. Ministry released the record’s lead single “Goddamn White Trash” on Thursday. Stream the official music video below now.

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

Fans can pre-order HOPIUMFORTHEMASSE now HERE. It will be available in three vinyl variants, a CD jewelcase and digital/streaming platforms. The vinyl variants include: green with yellow splatter (in stores everywhere); blue with pink splatter (nuclear blast exclusive); red with white splatter (band/tour exclusive).

In just a few days, Ministry are hitting the road with Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper and Filter on the Freaks on Parade Tour. The month-long trek kicks off on August 24 at the Dos Equis Pavilion in Dallas, Texas and wraps up on September 24 at the Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre in Phoenix, Arizona.
