Ministry is taking on the impact of specific media and social media outlets on Americans in its latest single and video.
The band premiered the video for its single, ‘Disinformation’ Friday. The song is featured in the band’s new album, Moral Hygiene, which was released Friday. The video features founder and front man Al Jourgensen watching various news stories from Fox News in total shock at what they deliver. That is crossed with classic footage of people watching television in the 1950s and other related imagery to help translate the clearly sociopolitical theme featured in the song’s lyrical content.
The song’s musical arrangement is everything that audiences have come to expect from Ministry. From the familiar blend of keyboards and electronics, to Jourgensen’s familiar vocal modifications through the production, everything featured in this song’s arrangement is familiar, but still gives the song its own identity.
In other news, Ministry recently announced that it had rescheduled its “Industrial Strength Tour” for the second time this year. The band announced through a news release, the latest rescheduling was again caused by the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
