Industrial-metal giants Ministry will release their 14th studio album this fall, a collection called AmeriKKKant that is available for pre-order now via PledgeMusic in a variety of bundles that top out at $10,000 — a price that’ll get you a digital download of the new album and one of your own songs remixed and given “that Ministry sound” by Al Jourgensen himself.
The new album will be Ministry’s first since 2013’s From Beer to Eternity, and third since Jourgensen reactivated the band at the beginning of this decade after a few years off. No tracklist has yet been announced, but the band confirms guests on the record will include DJ Swamp (Beck), Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory), Arabian Prince (NWA) and Lord of the Cello.
AmeriKKKant will be available on CD, vinyl and as a digital download, though the vinyl release isn’t expected until early 2018. The download and CD are due out this fall.
As is customary with PledgeMusic offers, there are a wide range of packages available to pre-order, which pair the album itself with all manner of merchandise, from clothing to guitars. For $250, Jourgensen will play “Happy Birthday” for you on harmonica, and send that to you, with a personalized message, via mp3. Or for $7,000, you can get an executive producer credit on the album.
