The cover artwork for MINISTRY's upcoming album, "Rio Grande Blood", has been posted online here. Produced by MINISTRY founder Al Jourgensen, the follow-up to 2004's "Houses Of The Molé" was recorded at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, Texas and features Tommy Victor (PRONG, ex-DANZIG) and Paul Raven (KILLING JOKE). A May 9 release via Jourgensen's newly launched 13th Planet label is expected. Two recent photos of MINISTRY taken during the recording sessions for their new album have been posted online: Photo #1 (left to right: Tommy Victor, Al Jourgensen, Paul Raven), Photo #2 (left to right: Raven, drummer Mark Baker, Jourgensen, Victor).
In other news, Jourgensen confirmed in a recent online posting that SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison will be sitting behind the kit for MINISTRY on their upcoming North American tour, which is scheduled to kick off in early May. Joey is expected to join a touring lineup that will include Jourgensen, Victor and Raven.
MINISTRY's MasterBaTour 2006 will consist of 60 dates scheduled throughout the U.S. and Canada beginning on May 6. Support on the trek will come from Al's other band, REVOLTING COCKS and the San Antonio, Texas-based PITBULL DAYCARE. European dates are currently being booked for August and September 2006.
