MINISTRY ANNOUNCES NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH CARPENTER BRUT & IGORRR
American industrial juggernaut Ministry will continue to support their critically acclaimed album AmeriKKKant with a full U.S. tour this November / December. Joining them are new synthwave sensations Carpenter Brut, and manic avant garde industrial act Igorrr.
“I think the sets are going to work really well together,” commented Ministry mastermind Al Jourgensen. “Looking forward to seeing the masses collapsing into a puddle of sweat by the end of the festivities.”
Produced by Al Jourgensen, recorded at Caribou Studios in Burbank, CA and with striking artwork created by Mister Sam Shearon, the psychedelic, politically influenced and very much in-your-face AmeriKKKant’s nine tracks are rooted in Jourgensen’s unadulterated anger for what’s happening in America today: the waning respect for the U.S. Constitution, the growing acceptance of one’s opinions replacing facts, the decline of our leaders’ sense of morals, ethics and personal responsibility to the country and to their constituents, and the mad man in the White House.
For decades, the powerhouse of psychotic sound that is Ministry has overcome millions with releases such as Filth Pig, The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste, Psalm 69, From Beer To Eternity, and a flood of others. Since the ’80s, founder Al Jourgensen, has been combining elements of synth pop, punk, metal and even dub in a way that is instantly recognizable and has influenced many other bands.
With timeless classics such as “Just One Fix,” “Thieves,” and “Jesus Built My Hotrod,” Ministry are one of a kind musical pioneers.
With six Grammy nominations to date, over three million albums sold, more than 2,000 live performances, and movie soundtrack work on The Hurt Locker, Artificial Intelligence, The Matrix, Robo Cop and Saw, Ministry has been contributing to the music industry for over three decades.
