    Industrial metal legends Ministry have announced that former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison will be joining the band to perform drumming duties on their upcoming North American tour!

    According to a press release from the band:

    "The tour's guest line up will feature vocalist Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory), drummer Joey Jordison (Slipknot, VIMIC), and live scratcher DJ Swamp (Beck, the Crystal Method), who will join long-time band members Sin Quirin and Cesar Soto on guitars, Tony Campos (Fear Factory, Static-X, Asesino, Cavalera Brothers) on bass, and keyboardist John Bechdel (Killing Joke, Fear Factory).

    For these dates, Ministry will present a whole new set list that will include more new songs from AmeriKKKant. Said Jourgensen, "Old friends, new music…Dream lineup, nightmare world. Get your ass to this show…this one will be memorable."

    Although it's probably unlikely, fingers crossed that this lineup makes its way out to Australia.

    Burton recently lent his vocal talents to Ministry's latest track Wargasm. Check out the official video:

    It sounds like the guys are pretty stoked to be on the lineup, and we can't blame them - these shows are probably going to be killer!

    "I am very honored to be part of Ministry's 'all-star' crew for the upcoming 'Amerikkant' tour," said Burton C. Bell. "Working with Al over the years has been a blast and a dream come true, and to be part of another Ministry album was another milestone in my career. Hanging, laughing, playing with AL, JB, Sin, Cesar, Tony and Joey is always a good time. I've known all these characters for some time, and they will never get old! I expect this tour to be super fun. Like the songs goes, "my whole life is making music with my friends, and I can't wait to get on the road again…"

    "This looks to be a landmark tour with an amazing lineup and a killer new record," added Joey Jordison, "and we look forward to these shows and celebrating a new chapter in the history of Ministry. But more importantly, the current status and future of Ministry's music and legacy. So, to the past, present and most importantly to the future, stay alert as this is not to be missed and we hope you will join us at these shows. We'll see you on the road very soon."
