If you thought that 2012’s Relapse was Ministry ’s last album, think again. Frontman Al Jourgensen says that he’s put together a new record, titled From Beer to Eternity , which features riffs from late guitarist Mike Scaccia , who died in December 2012.
"It was the most emotionally difficult project I've ever done, but it was the most rewarding," Jourgensen tells Noisey . "Mikey was amazed with the songs when he was working on them, and I know he's looking down at us now and he's totally stoked with what we came up with."
Jourgensen adds that he expects
From Beer to Eternity
to be the band’s final release. “Mikey was my best friend in the world and there’s no Ministry without him,” he explains. “ But I know the music we recorded together during the last weeks of his life had to be released to honor him. I can’t do it without Mikey and I don’t want to…this will be Ministry’s last album.”
While From Beer to Eternity doesn't yet have a firm release date, is expected to arrive in September. Here’s the track list:
“Hail to His Majesty”
“Punch in the Face”
“Side FX Include Mikey's Middle Finger (T.V.4)”
“Thanx But No Thanx”
“Change of Luck”
“Enjoy the Silence”
