Ministry unveiled its latest single this week.
The band premiered ‘AmeriKKKA’ Sept. 18. The song, taken from the band’s recently released album AmeriKKKANT, was accompanied by a “visualizer” that is streaming online now here.
Musically, the song is a heavy, down-tempo piece that drives with the force of a sledgehammer while its lyrical content and visualizer present images of American patriotism to drive home the message of America’s current path under the current administration.
‘AmeriKKKA’ is the third single to be released from AmeriKKKANT. The record has also spawned the singles ‘Antifa‘ and ‘Wargasm.’ A handful of videos featuring Ministry front man AL Jourgensen tackling subjects related to AmeriKKKANT have also been released. They are noted below along with the links to the videos.
