They claim it’ll be their last, and it’s coming out this August.
Ministry will release that final live DVD — called “Enjoy The Quiet — Live At Wacken 2012” — on August 2.
A presser says the “disc captures the final show of the band’s 2012 ‘Relapse’ tour at Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany. Frontman Al Jourgensen was still battling severe dysentery when he took the stage at Wacken on August 3, 2012, in front of 75,000 screaming fans.”
But, “through sheer willpower, he was able to hold himself together and perform in Wacken at his utmost peak with a band of traveling bandits he considered close friends as well as gifted musicians.”
The DVD will boast one of the last performances captured of Al’s friend Mike Scaccia, who died less than five months later.
“Mikey was in his version of heaven at Wacken,” Jourgensen says. “His guitar playing was the heart and soul of Ministry and he loved that band more than everyone — even me. He’s the one who convinced me to continue when I swore I was done with it.”
