Ministry have confirmed their touring lineup for this year’s ‘Industrial Strength Tour‘, which will find them out with Helmet and Front Line Assembly. The trek will also serve as a 30th anniversary run for Ministry‘s gold-certified 1989 album “The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste“.

As per today’s announcement, Ministry‘s live lineup for that run will include:

Vocals/guitar: Al Journgensen
Guitar: Cesar Soto

Bass: Paul D’Amour (ex-Tool)
Keyboards: John Bechdel (ex-Fear Factory, etc.)

Guitarist Sin Quirin announced his exit from Ministry last month, over a year after several accusations of him having conducted sexual relationships with underage girls emerged. Those incidents are alleged to have occurred prior to his time in Ministry.
