Al Jourgensen and co will play a total of seven shows, kicking off at Nottingham’s Rock City on July 17 and wrapping up with a set at Bristol’s SWX on the the 25th of the month.

The tour has been scheduled in support of Ministry’s new album AmeriKKKant, which will be released on March 9 via Nuclear Blast.

Tickets will go on sale tomorrow (February 23). Find a full list of dates below and details of how you can buy them.
