Ministry has posted the following message online regarding reports that Al Jourgenson would be appearing at SXSW for a panel with Slipknot:

"Dearest Ministry Fans! Someone has erroneously issued a press release to media stating that Al Jourgensen will be attending SXSW and conducting a panel with Clown of Slipknot entitled 'Seeing Red Aesthetics & Visuals of Metal' scheduled for March 15th from 2:45 3:45 pm in Room 11AB at the Austin Convention Center.

"While 13th Planet supports both SXSW and Clown of Slipknot, no one ever contacted Al’s management to invite Al to participate in this panel, and Al WILL NOT BE attending SXSW nor participating in any panel of any kind whatsoever.

"Any notice or announcement of Al Jourgensen’s presence at SXSW or participation in any panel is FALSE."
