First Ever Headline Australian Tour for MINISTRY, the American Industrial Metal Juggernaut led by Al Jourgensen as they take over Australia for 5 shows this September! This will only the second time ever MINISTRY have toured Australia – Big Day Out in 1995 and Soundwave in 2015! More vicious, aggressive and ferocious than ever before, get ready to lose your mind as they crush each venue!
Plus, as an added bonus for the East Coast shows the Special Guest will be American Industrial Rockers FILTER*!
“The crowd was a hot mess of energy. Mosh pits swirled, shoes were lost” – The Void Report (Ministry Review)
MINISTRY‘s machine-gun beats and crushing guitars make other heavy bands seem rather faceless in comparison. Founder and frontman Al Jourgensen, dressed like a haunting voodoo priest, tears through songs with his indelicate roar and gives the band a greater aura of style and theatrics. The set list gives a nod to their past with Just One Fix, N.W.O, Psalm 69, Stigmata, Thieves, So What as well as their brutal more recent songs Punch in the Face & Lies Lies Lies.
Industrial rock behemoths FILTER* join MINISTRY in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne! Led by Richard Patrick, FILTER bring their larger than life live performance to Australia following their amazing performance at Soundwave 2014. Having recently released their 7th album ‘Crazy Eyes’, this will be your chance to listen to all your favourite tracks – Take A Picture, Hey Man Nice Shot, Welcome To The Fold, Trip Like I Do plus more!
This isn’t the Industrial Revolution this is the Industrial Insurgency as MINISTRY and FILTER combine to create their own energy source: fuelled by rib crushing riffs, thunderous rhythms and body slamming tunes. This is one tour that will leave fans emotionally charged and one you will NOT want to miss.
