Ministry have already released the track “PermaWar” digitally, and now they’ve launched the video. Somewhat of a departure from the band’s earlier visual works, in that we see Al Jourgensen’s face more, military themes are still prominent in the new video for the single to be included on the band’s forthcoming album From Beer to Eternity.
The album, set for release September 6, may be the end of new material from the industrial metal icons. Just two years after Jourgensen announced the band would be reuniting, he has announced that this album would be their last (though that wouldn’t be the first time he said that). Following the death of guitarist Mike Scaccia in December, resulting from an onstage heart attack while performing with his other band Rigor Mortis, Jourgensen has said he does not want to carry on without his best friend.
But until that happens, we can honor Scaccia’s memory with new songs that were spawned prior to his early death. Get your Ministry fix while you can and check out the video below.
