Southern California’s reverends of rock ‘n’ roll FIREBALL MINISTRY have premiered a powerful, stripped down cover of MOTORHEAD’s classic song “I Don’t Believe A Word”. The tribute track is featured on the band’s 5th studio album, Remember The Story, which will be released on October 6th via Cleopatra Records. Pre-order the album now at iTunes and BandCamp.

Stream “I Don’t Believe A Word” now below.

Vocalist/guitarist Jim Rota says: “So a few years ago I saw METALLICA play at the Wiltern Theater and afterwards the group of us decided to go drinking at the Rainbow with Lemmy. When we got to the Rainbow we all proceeded to consume our beverages and get more and more fun as the night went on, and I got into a conversation with Lem about what his best words were that he ever wrote. He kept saying that “1916” were the best lyrics he ever wrote but I told him I disagreed and he said oh yeah “then what are the best lyrics I ever wrote?” And I replied that’s easy “I Don’t Believe A Word” are the best words you ever wrote.” And I could see the total shock on his face and I said “why that face” and he said “how the hell would we ever play that live; who would sing back ups?” And then I quickly responded to him “and the second-best is "Orgasmatron".” And we both cracked up.

Rota continues: “I thought it would be a fitting tribute on this record for us to do the song stripped down to pay tribute to him and try to show the world what a great songwriter he really was. Great songs always seem to translate no matter how you interpret them. That said I bet he would hate this version, but hopefully not!!”

Only a week remains until the release of FIREBALL MINISTRY’s new album, Remember The Story. The new record is well worth the wait too. The band’s first album in nearly seven years delivers their tried and true signature stomp and fuzzy swing with an even broader scope and deeper emotional range.

FIREBALL MINISTRY will be performing with FOO FIGHTERS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and more at the Cal Jam 17 Festival on October 7th at Glen Helen Amphitheater and Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, CA. Tickets are available at https://www.caljamfest.com/. The band will also perform Southwest dates with Red Fang, including a hometown show at the Troubadour, in Los Angeles on October 28th. Buy tickets at http://fireballministry.com/.

In celebration of the release of Remember The Story, FIREBALL MINISTRY will be signing autographs and performing a free show for fans at Amoeba Music in Hollywood, CA at 6:00PM PT on October 5th.
