MINISTRY RELEASE DIGITAL SINGLE AND SIGN WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH AFM
Industrialists Ministry have signed a worldwide record deal with AFM Records. Their new album, entitled ‘Relapse’, is due for release on March 30th 2012, and will be their first album of original material for five years, since 2007’s ‘the Last Sucker’.
Ministry mainman Al Jourgensen comments on the record deal; “Our 13th Planet Records releases have been distributed in Europe via AFM, through our partner Soulfood Music in Germany for several years now, and we have established a solid business relationship, so it made perfect sense to take the next step and have AFM Records come on board and be involved with the new Ministry release for worldwide and digital distribution. I’m pretty psyched about the collaboration, based on the response and enthusiasm I’ve received from AFM so far…”
The band will release a new song, ’99 Percenters’, via iTunes on Dec 23rd (available to stream on the Facebook bandpage from Xmas day). The track is in support of the ‘occupy movement’. Jourgensen previously revealed in Revolver magazine; “[it] is a rally cry for all of the protesters that have gathered across the country to demonstrate against corporate greed, cutthoat capitalism, and the one percent of Americans who earn millions of dollars a year, but receive substantial tax cuts on their income.”
