SoCal-based heavy rock band Fireball Ministry will release their fifth album, Remember The Story, on October 6th via Cleopatra Records. Today, the band has unveiled a music video for the new single, “The Answer”. It follows the previously released lyric video for “Back To Earth“, also included below.
The new effort is Fireball Ministry‘s first new studio release in seven years and it was produced/mixed by Paul Fig (Ghost, Alice In Chains). Remember The Story’s cover artwork was created by Caitlin Mattisson and conveys the album’s theme of death and eventual renewal.
Speaking about the art, Mattisson says, “the vulture represents renewal and transformation and has connections to many mythologies and cultures, from being descended from Griffins in Greek Mythology to the scientific (Latin) name of Turkey Vulture translating to Golden Purifier, which ties in to Jim’s theme about a 2nd chance at life. Elements inspired by Hildgard of Bingen have been worked into the border shapes, as well as 2 blown out candles on the front. The book on the front is a Fireball Ministry hymnal shooting light. On the back of the album the candles are lit again and the vulture is flying away towards a new moon, new beginning.”
Pre-order the album now at this location.
