Ministry Confirm Last Album

Ministry's frontman, Al Jourgensen has confirmed fans' worst fear: the upcoming album, The Last Sucker (out September 18), will be the band's last. Jourgensen has said the decision was made based on the amount of other projects he is focusing on. The split will give him more time for projects like his label, 13th Planet Records.
"I've got a lot of side-projects and new projects I want to focus on," the singer explained. "We have our our own label, 13th Planet Records, we're building, and I want to sign, produce and collaborate with other artists. Being in the studio writing, recording and collaborating is my favorite part of this snake-oil industry. I'd rather be behind the console than behind the mic." The frontman also added a little political jab to the announcement, saying, "Plus, I kinda like the synchronicity of Dubya and Ministry riding off into the sunset hand in hand."
