Ministry announce UK and European summer tour

Ministry's Al Jourgensen

Ministry have announced plans to tour across the UK and Europe this summer.

Al Jourgensen and co will play a total of 24 shows, kicking off at Nickelsdorf’s Novarock festival on June 16 and bring the run to a close with a set at the Gefle Metal Festival in Gävle, Sweden, on July 17.

Ministry have lined up the shows in support of their most recent studio album AmeriKKKant, which launched last year.

In November, vocalist Jourgensen revealed that he was planning on returning to the studio to work on the follow-up.

He told Consequence Of Sound: “I have a studio in my house that is currently under construction to make it ready for next year. 

"So when I go back, we’ll go right into production on a new Ministry record and just record for the next six months – very similar to what we did for The Land Of Rape And Honey and just record a bunch. 

“If Jello wants to come down to L.A. and sing a couple of songs…”
