In August, MINISTRY offered fans a sneak peek of their new material with the official release of “Goddamn White Trash,” featuring the talents of Pepper Keenan from CORROSION OF CONFORMITY. This song made its debut during MINISTRY‘s headline tour earlier in the year.
Throughout the album’s nine tracks, Jourgensen remains as outspoken as ever, expressing his frustration with a world that seems ready for a wake-up call. Much like the rest of us, he’s witnessing the chaos around him, but he wields his microphone skillfully to address the state of the world. Joining Jourgensen are MINISTRY‘s current lineup of talented musicians, including John Bechdel on keyboards, Monte Pittman and Cesar Soto on guitars, Roy Mayorga on drums, and Paul D’Amour on bass. “Hopiumforthemasses” also boasts an array of special guest contributors, including Eugene Hutz from GOGOL BORDELLO, long-time collaborator and LARD companion Jello Biafra, and Pepper Keenan.
“Hopiumforthemasses” will be available in various formats, including three vinyl variants (green with yellow splatter for widespread distribution, blue with pink splatter as a nuclear blast exclusive, and red with white splatter as a band/tour exclusive), a CD jewel case, and digital/streaming platforms.
