Coal Chamber announce tour, possibly collaborate with Ministry [UPDATED]

Posted by on December 9, 2014

ministryccCoal Chamber, who younger metal fans might know only as the band that Dez Fafara was in before Devildriver, have  been resuscitated since 2011, but so far, only have several tours under their belt. However, they’ve announced that they’re in the studio working on a new album that will be out in 2015, which will be the first new music from them in 13 years. They’ve also announced a tour with Filter, Combichrist and American Head Charge that will kick off in March. While details about the new album, their fourth, are pretty sparse right now, there’s certainly a possibility that Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen will pop up on it, given that pic that Dez posted on his Instagram account.

He definitely did some kind of collaboration with Jourgensen on Sunday, according to the post. “From last nights #Ministry #CoalChamberCollaboration #BROTHERS #Music #Art #WhenYourHerosDontDissapoint #Humble #NoEgo #LetsJamTogether,” it read. It’s not clear whether or not the collaboration will appear on the album, but given the timing, it seems likely. UPDATE: Fafara responded to our tweet about this article essentially confirming it:

Meanwhile, the ’90s revival tour kicks off on March 6th.
