Ministry leader Al Jourgensen said back in June there’d be a tour to support From Beer to Eternity, the band’s supposed final album. Now some tour dates have been posted to the official Ministry Facebook page.
“Happy Halloween kiddies…

The first half of 2015 is shaping up to be a busy time for Ministry, as they’ll also be playing the Soundwave Festival in Australia, alongside Faith No More and Soundgarden. Following the death of guitarist Mike Scaccia, Ministry released From Beer to Eternity, which was recorded with him. While there were initially not going to be any tour dates, Jourgensen had a change of heart earlier this year. It’s not yet known who will be playing guitar with the band.
