On March 31, 2009, Ministry mastermind Al Jourgensen will release "Adios...Puta Madres," a 13-track live audio CD featuring performances from Ministry's Final World Tour, "C U LaTouR 2008," recorded over the course of the band's 75-city global farewell jaunt which kicked off March 25, 2008 in Spokane, WA and concluded with two final sell-out shows in Dublin, Ireland on July 19, 2008. "Adios...Puta Madres" features performances recorded in Serbia, Warsaw, Los Angeles, Chicago, Germany, Czech Republic, and Slovakia, to name a few.

"We had a blast on the final tour and this CD really captures the heart of Ministry live," said Jourgensen, who personally mixed the recordings last fall at 13th Planet Studios alongside his touring front-of-house engineer Michihiro Tanikawa, as well as engineer John Bilberry.

Ministry's all-star line-up for the 2008 "C U LaTouR" featured Ministry's founder Jourgensen joined onstage by guitarists Tommy Victor (Prong) and Sin Quirin (Revolting Cocks), keyboardist John Bechdel (Prong, AoTW, False Icons), Static X's Tony Campos on bass, drummer AAron Rossi (Prong), and Fear Factory/Ascension of the Watchers vocalist Burton C. Bell as Special Featured Guest. Most of the performing musicians in the Ministry line-up for the final tour are also recording artists on Jourgensen's 13th Planet Records.

Jourgensen plans to release a follow-up Rocumetary of the tour entitled "Fuchi Requiem" later this year, featuring candid footage that follows the band from rehearsals throughout the entirety of its C U LaTouR, with additional on-camera interviews with the band and crew.

Ministry gems including "Khyber Pass," "Just One Fix," the Grammy-nominated "Lieslieslies," "Life is Good" and "Let's Go" will be included. A full CD track listing is as follows:

Let's Go (from The Last Sucker, 2007)

That's kinda cool that he only took tracks from the last 3 discs for this album since they already put out the "Sphinctour" live album. nothing off "Animositsomnia" on either live album though.

Animositsomnia isn't one of their better releases;what a shame this band is not going to be around anymore-I've wanted to see their live act since they were on the 1st Lollapalooza(remember Lollapalooza?)My only ? is-when will"In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up-Live"come out on DVD?I've looked for this on DVD but can't find it,it is a really awesome concert;just as good or IMO better than Sphinctour.Please put this out on DVD,I doubt if Ministry will ever get together again...

I don't think they will. Its a shame, but Al's gotta point. Ministry has come to the end of their road (my opinion), although their final albums may suggest otherwise. After all, Al Is Ministry. Looking forward to this one!!

Wait til the Repulicans are back in office. Ministry may find a reason to reform then.
