MINISTRY Announces Summer 2020 Tour With KMFDM And FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY; BLABBERMOUTH.NET Presale Available

January 13, 2020

MINISTRY has announced a summer 2020 U.S. tour with support from KMFDM and FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY. "The Industrial Strength Tour" will celebrate the 30th anniversary of MINISTRY's "The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste" album. Released in 1989 and featuring hit singles "Thieves", "Burning Inside" and "So What", the record further cemented MINISTRY and Al Jourgensen as music innovators ahead of their time and produced a voluminous, aggressive sound that became a trademark for the industrial music genre.

"'The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste' just turned 30. Who knew we'd still be around to see this day," says Jourgensen. "But since we are alive and kicking, we figured we'd hop in the way-back machine and recreate the infamous original tour with KMFDM, and add in FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY as well. Don't miss it this time because we’ll be in wheelchairs for sure in another 30 years. May the fence be with you!"

A special BLABBERMOUTH.NET presale will begin on Tuesday, January 14 at 10:00 a.m. local time and end on Wednesday, January 15 at 10:00 p.m. local time. When prompted, type in the presale code "STRENGTH" to access tickets before the general public.

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, January 17 at 10 a.m. local time.
