Ministry To Release New Album “Moral Hygiene” In October, Premiere “Good Trouble” Lyric Video

Ministry have announced that their new album “Moral Hygiene” will be released on October 1. With this news, the band have also released a new song titled “Good Trouble.” The track, which is inspired by the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests and the activist work of the late John Lewis, is accompanied by a lyric video containing sampling that Al Jourgensen and his partner Liz Walton captured at last year’s demonstrations in Los Angeles.

“Moral Hygiene” Track Listing:

01. “Alert Level”
02. “Good Trouble”
03. “Sabotage Is Sex”
04. “Disinformation”
05. “Search And Destroy” (The Stooges cover)
06. “Believe Me”
07. “Broken System”
08. “We Shall Resist”
09. “Death Toll”
10. “TV Song #6 (Right Around The Corner Mix)”

Jourgensen said the following about the new record:

“The good thing about literally taking a year off from any social activity or touring is that you really get to sit back and get an overview of things as they are happening, as opposed to being caught up in the moment. And what I saw with how we handled several public crises — from the pandemic to racial injustice to who we vote in to lead our country — is that times are changing, and society needed to change to get away from the idea that has permeated us of take care of yourself, fuck everything else. Now more than ever we need moral hygiene. It consumed me as I wrote this album. It’s not some pious term. It’s what we have to return to in order to function as the human species on this planet. And I’m proud to have had such great guests on this album to help cement that message like Billy Morrison, Jello Biafra and Arabian Prince.”
