Surgical Meth Machine release lyric video for their cover of Devo hit Gates Of Steel.

The Al Jourgensen-led outfit issued the promo for the song lifted from their self-titled debut album.

Jourgensen recently announced that “it’s time” for another Ministry record. The vocalist previously insisted their 2012 album Relapse would be their last after his best friend and longtime guitarist Mikey Scaccia died of heart failure on stage with his other band Rigor Mortis in December that year.

Jourgensen said: “It’s been more than two years now, and I got more ideas and I have done albums with Mikey and have done them without him. I have a bunch of songs written in my head. It’s time to get another record out.”

Ministry will tour the UK with DevilDriver next month.
