Revolver Golden Gods nominee, MINISTRY madman Al Jourgensen is up to his old tricks and political ranting with the world debut of the video for “99 Percenters,” the first single off the upcoming worldwide release of the band’s Relapse album.
For “99 Percenters,” Jourgensen teamed up with his native El Pasonian and co-conspirator, director and animator Zach Passero (Wicked Lake, Ministry, Lieslieslies, RevCo, Fire Engine). Says Jourgensen: “Hopefully this song and video will motivate people to take action against the Kleptocracy we find ourselves living in. I am in awe of the passion and motivation of the Occupy Wall Street movement and feel compelled to contribute what I can to inspire global citizens to continue to take to the streets in protest against the encroaching New World Order.”
