Corporate greed. Sharky politicians. Climate out-of-control. Questionable government interests. All of it comes to a head in Al Jourgensen's latest diatribe against the system, "Just Stop Oil". The brand-new track - from MINISTRY's upcoming 16th studio album HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES - is shared today alongside a visually stimulating music video that begs for action for the benefit of our collective future.

Says Jourgensen of the track: "MINISTRY approves this message and the movement behind it. ENOUGH is ENOUGH!"

See the video for "Just Stop Oil" BELOW

"Just Stop Oil" follows the release of earlier single "Goddamn White Trash", both anchor tracks from HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES (out March 1, 2024 on Nuclear Blast Records) that give a preview of the state of mind of creator and band leader Al Jourgensen who is cantankerous as ever about a f***ed up world ripe for a boot up its ass. Like always, he's merely looking around at the same dumpster fire we all are, but he's got a microphone and uses it well to rage on about the state of the world.

Joined by MINISTRY's current frontline of musicians - John Bechdel (keyboards), Monte Pittman and Cesar Soto (guitars), Roy Mayorga (drums) and Paul D'Amour (bass) - HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES also has a slew of special guest contributors including GOGOL BORDELLO's Eugene Hutz, long-time collaborator and LARD companion Jello Biafra and CORROSION OF CONFORMITY frontman Pepper Keenan.

HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES will be available in three vinyl variants, a CD jewelcase and digital/streaming platforms. The vinyl variants include: green with yellow splatter (in stores everywhere); blue with pink splatter (nuclear blast exclusive); red with white splatter (band/tour exclusive).

Tracklist for HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES:

  • "B.D.E."
  • "Goddamn White Trash"***
  • "Just Stop Oil"
  • "Aryan Embarrassment"**
