REVOLTING COCKS, the side project of MINISTRY mainman Al Jourgensen, have pushed back the release date of their new album, "Cocked and Loaded", to March 7, 2006 from the previously announced February 14. Produced by Al Jourgensen, the CD features the contributions of guest artists Jello Biafra (DEAD KENNEDYS), Gibby Haynes (BUTTHOLE SURFERS), Rick Nielsen (CHEAP TRICK), Billy Gibbons (ZZ TOP), Stevie Banch (SPYDER BABY) and Phildo Owen (SKATENIGS) and Robin Zander (CHEAP TRICK). The first REVOLTING COCKS record in more than a decade, "Cocked and Loadded" is being released through Jourgensen's new imprint 13th Planet/Megaforce Records. "It's pretty prurient and juvenile and everything else that REVOLTING COCKS are known for," Jourgensen told RollingStone.com. "It's basically middle-aged men regaining their lost, juvenile delinquency years and being absolutely sophomoric. It's great."

REVOLTING COCKS will hit the road May 5, opening for Jourgensen's other band MINISTRY, who release a new studio album, "Rio Grand Blood", in April. The album, titled after ZZ TOP's 1972 album "Rio Grande Mud", takes aim at Bush America.

"We kind of have this administration that's just a little bit arrogant and very transparent, as far as their agenda," Jourgensen told RollingStone.com. "This little war going on overseas, the little Iraq thing, that's kind of got my goat, too. The arrogance of the right has just got me. All these wimpy liberals — good for Howard Dean, screaming into a mike, showing them the left isn't all about granola and alfalfa sprouts!"

On the subject of his collaboration with Tommy Victor (ex-PRONG) and Paul Raven (ex-PRONG and KILLING JOKE) on the new MINISTRY album, Jourgensen said, "The most fruitful collaboration I've ever done in my life has been this record. The three of us used to be competition, between PRONG, MINISTRY and KILLING JOKE, and now that we've kind of joined forces — shit! We should have done this twenty years ago."

As for what MINISTRY will sound like live? "This is the fastest, hardest, most maniacal record I've ever done."

I got Shinctour for Christmas, and it kicks ass. I am totally in love with it. I had the pleasure of being @ The Palladium when NWO was filmed, so that makes it even more amazing to see some ten years later. I miss Paul Barker, the use of electronics, and I feel that while I really do NOT like Gerorge Bush due to his take on civil rights, the economy, minimum wage, and the like...I feel that the neck cutters in that hell hole have some bombs coming to them for being a piece of sh** on the a$$ cheek of humanity. Still, Houses of the Mole has a way of just being too good to not be liked, and I have already made plans to see the tour this summer, as it will be one of the best dates of my whole summer. MINISTRY, rock on, and from someone who has been with you since the pop days of the 80's clear up and now, we are forever grateful to you for makiing our musical lives more and helping us give the establishment the giant middle finger. http://passingtime.ods.org
