Ministry's U.S. tour rescheduled for spring 2022, now featuring the Melvins and Compliance Corrosion

Industrial metal powerhouse Ministry is looking to postpone its tour from October to March and April 2022. Their reasoning is that they want to monitor the safety of the band, fans and venue staff. Don’t worry, they’ll be joined by sludge metal icons The Melvins and stoner rock band Corrosion of Conformity. Ministry celebrates the 30th anniversary of their fourth album, “The spirit is a terrible thing to taste ”, as well as for their next album “Moral hygiene”, coming out October 1. Tickets are already on sale with the exception of the St Paul, Montclair and Huntington dates which will go on sale October 1 local time.

Lead singer Al Jourgensen opened up about the band’s new musical direction for the LP in an interview with Heavy. He stated, “The same old stuff. Just a progression from the MINISTRY sound that has been refined over the past 30 [or] 40 years. And I think we hit a good one this time. There are a few that I wish I could track down, and there are a few that I’m really excited about. But this one is in the “gung-ho” category. This one makes a lot of sense for the times we live in.

The first stop on the tour is the Baltimore Soundstage in Baltimore, Maryland on March 6 and it will end at the SoDo Show Box in Seattle, Washington. Ministry also kept busy recording a cover of The Stooges ”Search and destroy “ starring Billy Morrison and did a short headlining tour with alternative metal band Helmet and electro-industrial band Front Line Assembly.
