Indie 103.1 FM's specialty metal program "Chaos with Full Metal Jackie" will celebrate its fourth anniversary this Sunday, April 6 by broadcasting live from MINISTRY's concert at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, California.
You can listen to the program at this location.
MINISTRY head honcho Al Jourgensen has enlisted the help of some of metal's finest for MINISTRY AND CO-CONSPIRATORS' "Cover Up". Due out today (April 1), the album features covers of some of rock music's absolute classics from the likes of DEEP PURPLE, T.REX, ZZ TOP, THE DOORS, MOUNTAIN, BOB DYLAN, THE ROLLING STONES, and more. Joining Al for the ride is MINISTRY and REVOLTING COCKS guitarist Sin Quirin, FEAR FACTORY frontman Burton C. Bell, REVOLTING COCKS' Josh Bradford, PRONG vocalist Thomas Victor, and the Hell Paso Mosh Choir. Additional Co-Conspirators include the late Paul Raven, Tony Campos and Wayne Static of STATIC-X, and ECHOES AND SHADOWS' Edu Mussi and Plastilina Mosh.
A 30-second clip of every cover on the album can be heard on the MINISTRY MySpace page.
The April Fools Day release of "Cover Up" coincides with the launch of MINISTRY's final world tour C U LaTouR which kicked off March 25 in Spokane, WA. The 38-date trek features special guests MESHUGGAH and opening act HEMLOCK, and winds down in mid-May with multiple nights in MINISTRY frontman Al Jourgensen's hometown of Chicago.
