Industrial pioneers Ministry hit the road for what will be their last world tour in support their final studio release, 'The Last Sucker.' Al Jourgensen and Paul Barker formed Ministry in 1979 as a post-punk dance unit playing fast, aggressive music in the style of British New Wavers Wire, Killing Joke and the Slits. Over the course of eleven albums and over a dozen tours, Jourgensen, Barker and the rest of the band have left scars on musical genres ranging from dance to alternative to industrial to metal. Ministry continued to write new chapters in the handbook of sonic devastation with the 2003 album 'Animositisomina,' 2004's 'Houses of the Mole' and 2006' 'Rio Grande Blood.' Al Jourgensen has also recorded and performed under other such side project names as Revolting Cocks and 1000 Homo DJ's. Meshuggah was formed in 1987 in Umea, Sweden.
