You read it here last, folks.
Wait — what label?
Yes, yes — industrial metal vets Ministry have inked a worldwide deal with AFM Records.
The band’s first album of original material since 2007’s The Last Sucker, called Relapse, will be released on March 30, 2012.
Commented Ministry mastermind Al Jourgensen: “Our 13th Planet Records releases have been distributed in Europe via AFM through our partner Soulfood Music in Germany for several years now, and we have established a solid business relationship, so it made perfect sense to take the next step and have AFM Records come on board and be involved with the new Ministry release for worldwide and digital distribution.”
Al added that he is “pretty psyched about the collaboration, based on the response and enthusiasm I’ve received from AFM so far…”
That is the art for the new album.
I’m on the fence about it. Not sure if it’s lame or just awful. Or both.
Needless to say, I don’t think the world needs another album from Ministry. Just my opinion.
