Ministry has announced the release date for their final studio album, From Beer to Eternity . It will arrive at all the usual outlets on September 6. Frontman Al Jourgensen notes that the upcoming record is dedicated to the group’s late guitarist Mike Scaccia , who died in December 2012.
“Mikey was so on fire and inspired, and really a driving force for this record,” he says in a statement on the group's Facebook page . “I'm super proud of From Beer to Eternity because it's my tribute to Mikey's incredible talent, and I feel it honors him and all of the years we spent together making music.”
In addition, the group has unveiled the artwork for From Beer to Eternity . It features a photo of Jourgensen as a fisherman who has captured six naked women in a giant net.
