FIREBALL MINISTRY Releases Music Video For 'The Answer'

September 8, 2017

"The Answer", the new Brandon Trost-directed video from the Southern California rock 'n' roll band FIREBALL MINISTRY, can be seen below. The song is taken from the group's fifth studio album, "Remember The Story", which will be released on October 6 via Cleopatra Records. The band's first disc in nearly seven years delivers their tried-and-true signature stomp and fuzzy swing with an even broader scope and deeper emotional range. The album mines the depths of loss, pain, and confusion, exorcising demons with the spirited uplift this kind of music best delivers.

"'Remember The Story' is about moving forward while staying connected to your past. With this album we've reached a new stage of crystallization and prowess in our riffage," says Emily J Burton.

"This is a very personal record to me and was written from down deep," adds James A Rota. "It's also an honor to be playing alongside Emily [Burton] and John [Oreshnick] for the last twenty years. Having Scott [Reeder] with us along for the ride has made our greatest music to date, in my humble opinion."

"Remember The Story" was produced/mixed by Paul Fig, the engineer behind important records from ALICE IN CHAINS and GHOST. SABBATH-soaked rhythms, PRIEST-worshipping melodies and no-nonsense THIN LIZZY mayhem collide in the Hollywood, California band, a group that has humbly but confidently flown the flag for rock authenticity since the hard-partying year of 1999.

"Remember The Story"'s cover artwork was created by Caitlin Mattisson and conveys the album's theme of death and 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 second chance at life. Elements inspired by Hildgard of Bingen have been worked into the border shapes, as well as two 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."

01. End Of Our Truth
02. Everything You Wanted
03. Back On Earth
