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 and mixed by Paul Fig (Ghost, Alice In Chains). The cover artwork for ‘Remember The Story’ 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 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.”

End Of Our Truth
