I distinctly remember sitting back in my seat on a Chicago-to-L.A. flight back in April of 2009, watching ADIOS... PUTA MADRES, the DVD companion to MINISTRY's 2008 C U LaTOUR - what was supposed to be the band's swan song. But, if the years have taught us anything, it's never say "never" when it comes to the sonic activities of Uncle Al Jourgensen and the gang. After all, 2007's THE LAST SUCKER was MINISTRY's "final" album, until 2012's RELAPSE and 2013's FROM BEER TO ETERNITY arrived. So here I sit, just five years past viewing the DVD of MINISTRY's "final" tour, and having in my possession what is now being touted as the "final live MINISTRY release," LAST TANGLE IN PARIS - a 1 DVD/2 CD combo pack featuring video from the band's 2012 DeFiBriLaTour, and music from the 2006 and 2008 incarnations of the band.

MINISTRY is a band that just will not die. In fact, I believe that as long as there is AL JOURGENSEN, there will be MINISTRY. Despite "final tours" and the occasional "final album," MINISTRY somehow manages to rise again, morphing into slightly different incarnations with new personnel and new music. On September 6, 13th Planet Records will release the 13th studio album from MINISTRY, when FROM BEER TO ETERNITY hits retail. But a new album isn't all that the band has cooking... a new DVD and a Jourgensen biography are also on-deck. Check out the full announcement below, right here on The Rock Father...
