Ministry’s Al Jourgensen Announces One In-Store Signing Of Ministry: Prescripture Alongside Author Aaron Tanner In Chicago

Jason Bullinger for Alternative Revolt

To celebrate the release of the new fully authorized visual history book Ministry: Prescripture on December 6, band leader and mastermind Al Jourgensen announces an appearance for one exclusive book signing alongside author and designer Aaron Tanner on Friday, December 13. The event is open to the public and will be held at Asrai Gardens West Loop (inside the Ace Hotel) in Chicago beginning at 6 pm. After the signing, there will be an afterparty at a secret nearby location with DJ Scary Lady Sarah spinning industrial, gothic and new wave tracks from 8pm to midnight.

Tickets are free but attendees must register here:

Only 2,000 copies will be printed of the limited-edition book that includes 248 pages of anecdotes from Ministry’s music contemporaries plus rare and unseen photos, artwork and other ephemera that spans Ministry’s entire career. A deluxe edition includes a 7” of the studio version “(Every Day is) Halloween (Acoustic)” featuring Dave Navarro. Read more about the book via Rolling Stone here. It’s the ideal holiday gift for music fans and collectors. There will be 200 copies available for purchase at the December 13 event, and out of town fans can also purchase copies at this link:

Also released today is Ministry’s campaign video encouraging Americans to get out and VOTE in the upcoming 2020 election season. Since the origins of the band in the ‘80s, Ministry has been a fervently political group with Jourgensen’s lyrical exposés about the Bush era to the current day Trump regime. Ministry’s most recent album, AmeriKKKant, began Jourgensen’s rally against the current state of affairs—and will only ramp up in the 2020 election cycle. See his voter call to action in the video below and look for more to come.

Find Ministry on tour this fall. The band will join Slayer on the thrash metal band’s final dates of its Farewell World Tour.
