DEC 21 – Al Jourgensen and Ministry have revealed the artwork for their new album "Relapse" which will feature a modern day ballad in support of the Occupy movement called "99 Percenters". In an interview with Revolver Mag, Al said, “Putting out this song is the least I could do. We wanted to fly to New York and protest and get arrested and pepper sprayed. But we can’t do it because I got a Christmas deadline on this album. But I’m with ‘em in spirit so the least I could do is give them a chant-along song. I’m going, Hey man, here’s your song. All you gotta do is chant the chorus.”  The chorus that goes, "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,99 Percent!" was inspired by the "1,2,3 What are we fightin' for!" in Country Joe's "I Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag" protest song from the 1960s. The song will be available on iTunes on December 23rd. Below you can watch a exclusive JTMP video of Al and Ministry in Washington, DC in October of 2004, right before the 2004 presidential election.
