Ministry planned to tour in 2020 as a 30th anniversary celebration of A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste as well as a reunion of the The Industrial Strength Tour, the "infamous original tour" with KMFDM, plus Front Line Assembly. That got postponed to fall 2021 with Helmet replacing KMFDM, and now the tour has been postponed till spring 2022, and while it is still called "Industrial Strength" it features totally different openers, Melvins and Corrosion of Conformity.

The tour will still celebrate A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste as well as upcoming album Moral Hygiene (preorder on limited edition bone vinyl), and it now sets off March 6 in Baltimore and wraps up April 18 in Seattle, with stops in Long Island, Philly, Montclair, Boston, Dallas, Chicago, St. Paul, Albuquerque, Anaheim, San Diego, San Francisco, and more. All dates are listed below.

The Long Island show is at The Paramount on March 8 and the Montclair show happens at Wellmont Theater on March 12. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday, October 1 at 10 AM.

Moral Hygiene is out October 1 via Nuclear Blast and you can pre-order it on exclusive, limited edition bone-colored vinyl in the BV shop. You can listen to "Search and Destroy" from it below.
