MINISTRY Brings The Noise To New York City - Images & Set List Of The DEFIBRILLATOUR Available!

Thirty years and 12 albums later, as well as a near-death experience in 2010, Jourgensen rises as a phoenix from the ashes with 'Relapse' -- still angry, still political and very very pissed off. Relapsing back into the music industry after a four-year hiatus, Jourgensen launches his audio assault with "Ghouldiggers," a no-holds-barred Metal bullet aimed directly at the pitfalls of the industry he has survived. Everything Jourgensen predicted on Houses of the Molé, Rio Grande Blood and The Last Sucker has transpired and as we approach the Mayan calendar of the End of Days in 2012, Jourgensen, re-invigorated by the global "99 Percenters" and Occupy Wall Street movement, navigates through Relapse once again as a reluctant prophet accusing, dissecting, cajoling and exhorting greed, corruption and lies.

This past Saturday (June 23rd), the band arrived to New York City's Best buy Theater to bring the noise via "The DEFIBRILLATOUR"! Compiling a 19 song set list that included many of the bands classics, as well as plenty of NEW songs and even a cover by the STORMTROOPERS OF DEATH, the Industrial Metallers proved why they are one of the finest bands in the history of the genre (which they pioneered). The set list was as follows:

1) Ghouldiggers
2) No W
3) Rio Grande Blood
4) Señor Peligro
5) LiesLiesLies
6) 99 Percenters
7) Watch Yourself
8) Life Is Good
9) Waiting
10) Worthless
11) Relapse
12) The Last Sucker
13) Khyber Pass


14) Psalm 69
15) N.W.O.
16) Just One Fix
17) Thieves
18) So What

Encore 2:

19) United Forces (Stormtroopers Of Death Cover)
