Ministry has shared a trippy new music video for the song “Believe Me!” The track comes from their 2021 album Moral Hygiene, out now via Nuclear Blast Records. The band will kickoff a new tour soon with Melvins and Corrosion Of Conformity for direct support as special guests. Tickets are on sale now! Watch the clip for “Believe Me” now!

The video was a departure from the two previously released professional videos from the album and became a total DIY effort, with each of the band members (also including drummer Roy Mayora, guitarists Cesar Soto and Monte Pittman, bassist Paul D’Amour and keyboardist John Bechdel) gearing up for the upcoming tour at home and purchasing an inexpensive green screen to contribute their parts to the performance footage that was then melded together. Ministry hopes to encourage other artists to do the same during these difficult times when budgets are tight and still have fun with the creative process.
See the video for “Believe Me” here:Moral Hygiene is Ministry’s 15th studio album and features some of the project’s strongest and most inspired material to date. It features the creative masterwork of founder and creator Al Jourgensen who spent the pandemic pause ruminating on the new world we as a society have found ourselves in – while pondering just what we are going to do about it.
Moral Hygiene is available now through Nuclear Blast Records in CD, vinyl and digital download formats at the following links:
