Ministry's Industrial Strength tour was to have started in July, celebrating 30 years of their A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste album and having them joined by KMFDM and Front Line Assembly -- a pretty formidable bill. But with the coronavirus pandemic messing up touring this year, they've rescheduled it for 2021. Things will now kick off March 31 in Seattle and run through May 1 in San Francisco. The new NYC-area shows will now happen April 15 at The Paramount on Long Island and April 16 at The Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ. Original tickets will be honored for the new show dates in 2021, or ticketholders can receive refunds at the point of purchase. All 2021 dates are listed below.

Mewanhile, Ministry are working on a new album, and released new single "Alert Level" (Quarantine Mix) back in April. You can listen to that, as well as A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste and tracks from KMFDM and FLA, below.

Related: drummer Bill Rieflin, who had played with Ministry and KFMDM (not to mention Swans, Nine Inch Nails, Revolting Cocks, King Crimson and more), died back in March.
