MINISTRY: Sofia Photos Posted Online

High-quality photos of MINISTRY's first and last-ever show in Sofia, Bulgaria (with local support ALIEN INDUSTRY) have been posted on the Tangra Mega Rock web site. More pictures and the setlist can be found here.

Tommy Victor (MINISTRY, PRONG) was interviewed at the Graspop Metal Meeting (June 27-29) in Dessel, Belgium by "Whiplash", a weekly metal show on Belgian national radio Studio Brussel, hosted by AFTER ALL guitarist Dries Van Damme. Tommy discusses the incident that took place on June 24, 2008 at MINISTRY's concert at Havana Café in Toulouse, France where the band's show had to be stopped after a fan allegedly jumped up on stage and attempted to attack the band with tear gas.

The U.S. leg of MINISTRY's final world tour — C U LaTouR — kicked off March 25 in Spokane, Washington and concluded on May 11 in Chicago, Illinois. The trek featured special guests MESHUGGAH and opening act HEMLOCK.

Al Jourgensen enlisted the help of some of metal's finest for MINISTRY AND CO-CONSPIRATORS' "Cover Up". Released on 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.
