Once again the mighty FILTER will be joining MINISTRY. This is the first Ever Headline Australian Tour for MINISTRY, the American Industrial Metal Juggernaut led by Al Jourgensen as they take over Australia for 5 shows this September! This will only the second time ever MINISTRY have toured Australia – Big Day Out in 1995 and Soundwave in 2015! More vicious, aggressive and ferocious than ever before, get ready to lose your mind as they crush each venue!
MINISTRY’s machine-gun beats and crushing guitars make other heavy bands seem rather faceless in comparison. Founder and frontman Al Jourgensen,dressed like a haunting voodoo priest, tears through songs with his indelicate roar and gives the band a greater aura of style and theatrics. The set list gives a nod to their past with Just One Fix, N.W.O, Psalm 69, Stigmata, Thieves, So What as well as their brutal more recent songs Punch in the Face & Lies Lies Lies.
“Jourgensen was just as crazed, sinister, enigmatic and entertaining as you could ever hope” – HeavyMag (Ministry Metro Theatre 2015 Review)
“The militaristic speed metal of Ministry’s 1989 song, Thieves, was the song of the festival” – Sydney Morning Herald (Soundwave Review)
“Uncle Al Jourgensen smashed it with his thunderous, industrial mayhem. His creepy stage antics thrilled onlookers” – scenestr.com.au (Soundwave Review)
“Uncle Al held the crowd in the palm of his hand” – HeavyMag (Soundwave Review)
“the guys ripped through a killer set, with a dynamic backdrop of amazing graphics and faux propaganda footage… a mind-bending performance” – Spotlightreport
Industrial rock behemoths FILTER* join MINISTRY in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne! Led by Richard Patrick, FILTER bring their larger than life live performance to Australia following their amazing performance at Soundwave 2014. Having recently released their 7th album ‘Crazy Eyes’, this will be your chance to listen to all your favourite tracks – Take A Picture, Hey Man Nice Shot, Welcome To The Fold, Trip Like I Do plus more!
“Richard Patrick is no stranger to delivering a pummeling round of songs to his diehard fans” – thevinyldistrict.com
“Richard Patrick is on fire right now. The band is incredible” – Allknowingforce.com
This isn’t the Industrial Revolution this is the Industrial Insurgency as MINISTRY and FILTER combine to create their own energy source: fuelled by rib crushing riffs, thunderous rhythms and body slamming tunes. This is one tour that will leave fans emotionally charged and one you will NOT want to miss.
‘erupted onto stage, straight into a full hard set of crowd pleasers… delivered with a ferocity unchanged’ – Metalwani (Ministry Review)
