News: Ministry Release Track ‘B.D.E.’ From ‘Hopiumforthemasses’

Ministry dropped a new single “B.D.E.” from forthcoming record Hopiumforthemasses due out March 1 on Nuclear Blast Records. “B.D.E.” follows up previous singles “Goddamn White Trash” and “Just Stop Oil.”

“B.D.E.,” aka “Big Dick Energy,” is accompanied by a video which comments on the toxic behavior often seen in both politics and everyday life as it is in 2024.

Jourgensen states:

“The incel subsect and general misogynistic tendencies in our society are dangerous yet seem to fly under the radar, so we figured it’s time to shine a light on it. In true Ministry fashion, we battle it with sarcasm”

Hopiumforthemasses is Ministry’s 16th studio album featuring the lineup of Al Jourgensen, John Bechdel (keyboards), Monte Pittman and Cesar Soto (guitars), Roy Mayorga (drums), and Paul D’Amour (bass).

Special guests on Hopiumforthemasses include Gogol Bordello’s Eugene Hutz, long-time collaborator and Lard companion Jello Biafra, and Corrosion of Conformity frontman Pepper Keenan.
