Ministry Announce U.S. Tour with Death Grips
I’m guessing that the new Ministry album, Ministry’s Ice Cube’s AmeriKKKant, is gonna drop sometime in the fall… because Ministry just announced a run of U.S. tour dates set to take place in October and November. Support will come Death Grips.
I can’t imagine any way these shows could be enjoyable without the aid of Ecstasy. Between these two acts, it will be a night of endless redundancy. At least Ministry have some hooks, whereas Death Grips’ entire artistic goal seems to be to make the listener feel like one of the bad guys getting beaten up in an old NES game. The tour is playing 3,000-cap rooms, though — way bigger than the venues Ministry were headlining just a few years ago — so I guess there are people are into this.
