ADIOS...PUTA MADRES...MINISTRY'S FINAL WORLD TOUR TO BE RELEASED ON CD
Los Angeles, CA -- February 18, 2009 -- Although Al Jourgensen has said adios to Ministry, YOU don't ever have to really say good-bye to the legendary Industrial rock band, thanks to Jourgensen's indie imprint 13th Planet Records. On March 31, 2009, Jourgensen will release "Adios...Puta Madres," a 13-track live audio CD featuring performances from Ministry's Final World Tour, "C U LaTouR 2008," recorded over the course of the band's 75-city global farewell jaunt which kicked off March 25, 2008 in Spokane, WA and concluded with two final sell-out shows in Dublin, Ireland on July 19, 2008. "Adios...Puta Madres" features performances recorded in Serbia, Warsaw, Los Angeles, Chicago, Germany, Czech Republic, and Slovakia, to name a few.
"We had a blast on the final tour and this CD really captures the heart of Ministry live," said Jourgensen, who personally mixed the recordings last fall at 13th Planet Studios alongside his touring front-of-house engineer Michihiro Tanikawa, as well as engineer John Bilberry.
Ministry's all-star line-up for the 2008 "C U LaTouR" featured Ministry's founder Jourgensen joined onstage by guitarists Tommy Victor (Prong) and Sin Quirin (Revolting Cocks), keyboardist John Bechdel (Prong, AoTW, False Icons), Static X's Tony Campos on bass, drummer AAron Rossi (Prong), and Fear Factory/Ascension of the Watchers vocalist Burton C. Bell as Special Featured Guest. Most of the performing musicians in the Ministry line-up for the final tour are also recording artists on Jourgensen's 13th Planet Records.
Jourgensen plans to release a follow-up Rocumetary of the tour entitled "Fuchi Requiem" later this year, featuring candid footage that follows the band from rehearsals throughout the entirety of its C U LaTouR, with additional on-camera interviews with the band and crew.
Ministry gems including "Khyber Pass," "Just One Fix," the Grammy-nominated "Lieslieslies," "Life is Good" and "Let's Go" will be included. A full CD track listing is below.
