After what was supposed to be their final album in 2012, Relapse, Ministry is giving it one final effort with the tracks recorded with late guitarist Mike Scaccia.
On December 3, 2012, Ministry lost their guitarist Mike Scaccia to heart failure while on stage with his other band, Rigor Mortis. He was pronounced dead at the hospital later on that night. However, before his untimely and tragic death, he got in the studio with the band and knocked out what will be Ministry's last record, From Beer to Eternity.
“Mikey was my best friend in the world and there’s no Ministry without him,” Jourgensen continues. “But I know the music we recorded together during the last weeks of his life had to be released to honor him. So after his funeral, I locked myself in my studio and turned the songs we had recorded into the best and last Ministry record anyone will ever here. I can’t do it without Mikey and I don’t want to. So yes, this will be Ministry’s last album."
Obviously there will be no tour for the record, which has a potential release date of September this year. The track list is as follows-
'Hail To His Majesty'
'Punch In The Face'
'Side FX include Mikey's Middle Finger (T.V.4)'
'Thanx But No Thanx'
'Change Of Luck'
'Enjoy The Silence'
