Ministry To Release New Album “Hopiumforthemasses” In Early 2024, First Single To Launch This Week


This past spring saw platinum-certified industrial metal legends Ministry add a new track titled “Goddamn White Trash” to their live sets. At the time, the group’s frontman Al Jourgensen had announced a tentative August 04th release date for the band’s sixteenth studio album, which he revealed had a title of “Hopiumforthemasses“.

As that date has already come and gone and no new Ministry album has arrived, some fans were left a little curious about the group’s plans. It has now just been revealed that the record is on track for a 2024 release.

Additionally, the influential outfit have just confirmed the impending arrival of the studio version of “Goddamn White Trash“. The song and its official music video (directed by Dean Karr) will be released online this coming Thursday, August 17th.

Included in the description of the video are pre-order links to “Hopiumforthemasses“, which specify March 01st release date has been slated via Nuclear Blast.
