Watch Ministry’s trippy new video for Victims Of A Clown

Ministry have released a video for their new track Victims Of A Clown.

The song features on the band’s latest album AmeriKKKant, which launched last month via Nuclear Blast.

The promo is said to be a “relentless hallucinogenic ride through images of creepy clowns roaming circuses where there are no exits, men parading in ghoulish gas masks, psychological messaging, physical reality bending and nightmarish suburbia.”

It was filmed in Los Angeles in late 2017 and produced and directed by Chris and Steve Roth of The Other House Productions – the same team behind Ministry’s Twilight Zone (opens in new tab) video which made its debut in February.

Chris Roth says: “For the Victims Of A Clown video, we strived for a drastic stylistic departure from Twilight Zone. This video is a much more raw, down-and-dirty, crunchy graphic art film.” 

Ministry will tour across the the UK this summer with special guest Chelsea Wolfe.
