Last Halloween Ministry announced a handful of tour dates for 2015. Now a few months later, and almost a year and a half  after the release of From Beer to Eternity, we’re treated to a bunch more North American tour dates.

Said Al Jourgensen, last summer:

“Yup you heard right…will be touring the FBTE album….the set will be FBTE in it’s exact order…and a few oldies for an encore…and it just won’t be America and Europe this time….we’ll see ya down under as well as Mexico South America and Japan…so start rounding up every fucking Amish teen you can find and bring em to the shows…..I will exact my revenge on those bastards….I’m still puking from their toxic “wood milk ” shit…….yuk!…if there was ever a reason to tour this is it….oh btw…it’s a secret for now…but I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of the dude that’ll take Mikey’s place……ok that’s it….so let it be written …so let it be done….”

It turns out that guitarist Mike Scaccia, who passed away at the age of 47 while onstage playing with Rigor Mortis, will be replaced by Monte Pittman, who has played with Madonna and Prong. Tony Campos (Static-X, Soulfly) will be handling bass duties.
