Ministry Premiere “Goddamn White Trash” Video Featuring Pepper Keenan (Corrosion Of Conformity/Down)


Industrial metal legends Ministry have begun the rollout to their sixteenth studio album, “Hopiumforthemasses“. As recently reported, the group are set to drop that outing on March 01st of next year via Nuclear Blast.

The first single from it, “Goddamn White Trash“, has newly made its way online ahead of time and is available below. That song sports a guest spot from Pepper Keenan of Corrosion Of Conformity/Down fame and is accompanied by a music video directed by Dean Karr (Slayer, Evanescence).

Frontman Al Jourgensen weighed in on what to expect from this new opus:

“Just like you or anybody else, I’m simply a passenger in this lifetime. I’m watching social changes, political changes, and economic changes, and I comment on them because I do have a First Amendment right. A lot of people say artists and athletes should shut up and play ball. No, I’m on this trip too. If I see something, I say something.

That reflects on where each album goes. Instead of staying sedentary and singing about broken relationships, inner turmoil, or whatever is hurting this week, I comment on what’s going on from the perspective of a fellow passenger.”

As it turns out, Keenan isn’t the only special guest to appear on the record, see below for the complete track listing:
