MeshuggahIt’s that time again; the Meshuggah camp is starting to stir with various news and rumblings. Yesterday the band announced that they finished recording their new album, titled obZen, a few weeks ago, and will tentatively release the album in early 2008 via Nuclear Blast.

Then today the band announced they will tour as direct support for Ministry on a 33-date North American run starting in March 2008, which will presumably coincide with the album release. The tour, titled “C U LaTouR,” will be Ministry’s farewell to North America, promoting Ministry’s latest and final album The Last Sucker. Hemlock will also be on the tour.

I’ve never been a fan of Ministry, but Meshuggah tours the U.S. so rarely that I’ll definitely spring for the ticket to see them; Ministry could be a fun bonus as well. Pre-sale tickets will supposedly be available here on Thursday, though the link is broken as of the writing of this post. Full tour dates after the jump.
