Industrial metal legends Ministry, led by the great Al Jourgensen, are returning to the UK in the Summer of 2016. News such as this by itself will be cause of celebration amongst Ministry’s legions of fans, but what makes the news even better is that they’re bringing Californian groove metal favourites Devildriver along for the ride with them!
Ministry and Devildriver will team up for a five date UK tour across England, Wales and Scotland in Mid August 2016, finishing off with a huge show at London’s Kentish Town Forum. Full confirmation of the dates can be found below:
