Al Jourgensen has always been a man of the people. He’s constantly taken a stand against the government. The Ministry catalogue is chalk full of tracks against war for oil, taxes, or just the entire George Bush campaign. For the most part, Al did this all while jacked up on heroin, crack, booze, and god knows what else. At some point something has got to give, and the lifestyle finally took its toll on Al. In 2007 Jourgensen almost died on his bathroom floor when an ulcer burst in his stomach causing blood to gush out of his mouth, nose and penis.
Now, completely sober, Al still has something to say. Ministry has released the first video to the upcoming album “Relapse”. (In stores March 26th). Ministry is now going after Wall Street over the recent “Occupy” movement. Sober or not, Al Jourgensen is a guy that can get the message out, and gather the masses. It looks as if Ministry hasn’t lost that edge! Check out the new video below:
