Ministry announced the release of a new studio album titled Amerikkkant. The band's 14th studio album will feature guests DJ Swamp (Beck), Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory), Arabian Prince (NWA), and Lord of the Cello. The official release date has not been announced, but according to Ministry it will be out this fall (vinyl format will be released early 2018) with a new single on the way shortly (Ministry debuted the live version of the new song "Antifa" at recent live shows which may or may not turn out to be the album's first single).

Al Jourgensen launched a campaign for Amerikkkant through Pledge Music and there are several pre-order options/pledging exclusives available. Many of the exclusives are relatively standard for music campaigns (signed merchandise, pledgers name listed in the album credits, test pressings, etc), but there are also several intriguing exclusives for Ministry fans. For instance:

For $250 Al Jourgensen will play Happy Birthday on harmonica and record a special message for the birthday recipient! Here's a picture of Al's harmonica, btw:


For $10,000 Uncle Al will remix one of your songs:

"Send your song to Al, and he will put the apply his years of studio wisdom to the mix and add finishing touches to give it that Ministry sound."

And for $300 Al will personally handwrite out the lyrics to a Ministry song of your choice. BUT, be warned -- as you might have guessed, he isn't willing to write lyrics to certain songs for ANY price:

"A song of your choice written out by hand! Note Songs from “With Sympathy” are not eligible."

View all of the pledging options here.

Ministry have a handful of live dates planned for later this year. Their tour will include a stop in Chicago for day 1 of Riot Fest. The September 15th date is headlined by Nine Inch Nails and include sets from New Order, Buzzcocks, X, The Cribs, and Death From Above. Get details and tickets here.
