Ministry have released a psychedelic visualiser video for their new single AmeriKKKa.

It’s the latest track taken from the band’s latest album AmeriKKKant, which launched in March this year via Nuclear Blast.

Speaking about Ministry and their impact on the music scene, former Dead Kennedys vocalist Jello Biafra says: “So much great music has been inspired by Ministry – Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie and White Zombie, KMFDM and Rammstein and back full circle to Ministry’s own influences, like the reborn Killing Joke. 

“But there's still only one Al Jourgensen. No one really does this now except Ministry. Somehow, in spite of himself, the Hunter Thompson of rock is still cranking out really good music and state of the art sound. 

“Is it Trump? The world burning like Rome? I feel another trilogy coming on. 

"This whole assault of an album really feels like it was made in a bunker, with you know who pacing all over his pillbox; half crazy to attack or be annihilated, just to get our whole Trumpamuck nightmare over with. Then what's around the corner?”

Ministry will head out on the road later this year in support of AmeriKKKant with support from Carpenter Brut. 

The shows will kick off in San Francisco on November 21 and wrap up with two nights at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on the 20 and 21 of December.
