Ministry detail From Beer To Eternity
Ministry’s new album From Beer To Eternity will be released on September 5 via 13th Planet Records.
The record was never meant to exist – but mainman Al Jourgensen says he “didn’t have a choice” about making it.
The record came out of a mammoth session of laying down rough tracks, followed by the tragic death of guitarist Mike Scaccia three days later.
Jourgen says: “We have never, in the history of Ministry, ever had a tracking session like that before. Everything went so smoothly. Mikey was on fire and inspired, and really a driving force.”
He says From Beer To Eternity is his own tribute to Scaccia. “During the tracking sessions Mikey was smiling and going, ‘You know what, Al? This is the best album we’ve ever done together.’”
The first single, Permawar, will appear in July. Jourgensen’s biography, The Lost Gospels According To Al Jourgensen, will be published the same month.
