MINISTRY - Releases Bold New Music Video For 'Disinformation', New Record "Moral Hygiene" Out Today!

MINISTRY - "Moral Hygiene" Out Today! - 2021-10-01

2021-10-01 - In celebration of the release of brand-new album "Moral Hygiene" – out TODAY via Nuclear Blast – MINISTRY releases the explosive new music video for the latest single, 'Disinformation' about the slippery slope we find ourselves in when consuming mass media without critical thinking. See it here: https://youtu.be/NQ7Zgb3YQSU


"Moral Hygiene" is MINISTRY’s 15th studio album and features some of the project’s strongest and most inspired material to date. It features the creative masterwork of founder and creator Al Jourgensen who spent the pandemic pause in 2020 ruminating on the new world we as a society have found ourselves in – while pondering just what we are going to do about it.

The 10 tracks are a follow-up to 2018’s lauded "AmeriKKKant" and put forth Jourgensen’s societal manifesto and plea for civilization to get back to a set of standards that lives up to and embraces our humanity.

Previous singles have included 'Alert Level' (sounding the alarm on the state society is in), 'Good Trouble' (a rallying cry to fight for human rights in homage to Civil Rights leader John Lewis) and 'Search And Destroy' (the unique take on The Stooges classic), the latter of which features guitar virtuoso Billy Morrison (Billy Idol/Royal Machines). Morrison is also heavily featured on a number of songs on the album. The record also includes a collaboration with Jello Biafra (Jourgensen’s cohort in side project LARD) on 'Sabotage Is Sex'.

"Moral Hygiene" was recorded with engineer Michael Rozon (also behind the boards on "AmeriKKKant") at Scheisse Dog Studio, Jourgensen’s self-built home studio and creative lab. As with all MINISTRY albums, all songs are written and performed by Al Jourgensen. Additional contributions come from Billy Morrison (Billy Idol, Royal Machines), Cesar Soto (Man The Mute), John Bechdel (Killing Joke, Fear Factory), Roy Mayorga (Stonesour, Soulfly, Nausea), Paul D’Amour (Tool, Feersum Ennjin), Arabian Prince (N.W.A.), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) and sitar player Flash.

Here is what media has had to say about "Moral Hygiene":

“MINISTRY’s new LP 'Moral Hygiene' is one of their best … 'Moral Hygiene' has quickly become one of my favorite records of 2021 … MINISTRY mastermind Al Jourgensen has come back to embrace some of the soundscapes found in the band’s earlier releases.”Metal Insider

“'Moral Hygiene' is truly an album for its time. … It is fresh, relevant, and stacked with incisive socio-political commentary from one of extreme music’s veterans of discontented rage. … Exciting, angry, and unapologetic: exactly how we like our MINISTRY.”Hysteria Magazine

“Having bands like MINISTRY around is still pretty critical when it feels like the social contract is hanging together by a thread. … What Jourgensen has been able to do … is make each MINISTRY album a statement about the world we live in now and what we should do to make it better. The music is as abrasive and confrontational as ever.”Wall Of Sound
