Fear Factory, Slipknot, Beck members to make up Ministry’s touring lineup

Posted by on February 12, 2018

Ministry have a new album, AmeriKKKant, coming out on March 9th. And while that’s not new news, the lineup that Al Jourgensen has to back him on the road in support of it is truly impressive. The tour, which kicks off on March 22nd, will find the likes of Fear Factory vocalist Burton C. Bell, VIMIC and former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison on drums and Beck turntablist DJ Swamp joining his backing band that includes Sin Quinn and Cesar Soto on guitars, Tony Campos on bass and John Bechdel on keys. Bell is looking forward to being in the band:

“I am very honored to be part of Ministry’s ‘all-star’ crew for the upcoming ‘Amerikkant’ tour,” said Burton C. Bell. “Working with Al over the years has been a blast and a dream come true, and to be part of another Ministry album was another milestone in my career.  Hanging, laughing, playing with AL, JB, Sin, Cesar, Tony and Joey is always a good time. I’ve known all these characters for some time, and they will never get old! I expect this tour to be super fun. Like the songs goes, “my whole life is making music with my friends, and I can’t wait to get on the road again…”

Jordison is also pumped: 

“This looks to be a landmark tour with an amazing lineup and a killer new record,” added Joey Jordison, “and we look forward to these shows and celebrating a new chapter in the history of Ministry.  But more importantly, the current status and future of Ministry’s music and legacy.  So, to the past, present and most importantly to the future, stay alert as this is not to be missed and we hope you will join us at these shows. We’ll see you on the road very soon.”
