Confirmed: WB drops Ministry

Ministry have been dropped by Warner Bros and it's confirmed by someone close to the band. Warner Brothers will release an anthology disc and a home video (which will also be on DVD format). The video will contain previously unreleased footage and rare videos.

No release date is currently set.

Three Live Albums

I said before that Ministry will be releasing a live album on Ipecac Records. Greg Wreckman (Co-owner of Ipecac) posted to alt.music.ministry (usenet - remember anyone?!) that the live albums will be from 1992, 1996 and 1999 concerts. They will be released one by one, every three months, with the first one being released in May.

The discs will be packages similar to the European Box Set.

(This was also noted by Kerrang! Magazine, but I wanted to make sure about it before posting here).

Revolting Cocks

Revolting Cocks should be releasing an album in summer, but Chris Connelly and Bill Rieflin will not be on it.

Grammy Awards

Unfortunately, Ministry did not win the Best Metal Song award at the Grammys. Black Sabbath did for their song, 'Iron Butterfly'. Even if Ministry won, they would not have appeared on TV picking up the award. (Ministry are Metal?!?)

(thanks Kitchens and Norm)

Ministry Live Album

This is what I have heard from several sources. It may still be a rumour! Ministry may be releasing a live album later this year. It will be released on Mike Patton's (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Mike Patton) label, Ipecac Records.

Again, at this point, it is not yet confirmed!

Record Label

I hate to tell you all this, but it seems as though Ministry has been dropped from Warner Brothers, their record label. Right now, it's unclear as to what will be in store with Ministry's future. Hopefully, the Maverick Records rumour is true.

Revolting Cocks

The news that has been posted up about Revco (that they will be releasing an album) is becoming true. They have been signed to a label.

Damage Manual

I have written up a mini-page on the new sideproject which includes a picture.
Check it out here.

Jello Biafra for President

Once again, Biafra is running for President as a Green Party Candidate. I heard this a few weeks ago, but I guess it's now official. Press release here.

Damage Manual

Wow, as if we didn't have enough sideprojects!

Damage Manual consists of:

* Chris Connelly (Ministry and RevCo) - vocals
* Jah Wobble (Public Image Limited, Invaders of The Heart) - bass
* Martin Atkins (Ministry, PiL, Pigface, Killing Joke, Nine Inch Nails) - drums
* Geordie Walker (Killing Joke) - guitars

They're signed to Invisible Records and are releasing their debut EP, One on April the 25th.

The EP will come as an enhanced CD-ROM, which will include live and studio recordings as well as behind-the-scene footage.

They are going to embark on a worldwide tour, starting with Austrailia in May.

You heard it here first!
