During a recent interview with Consequence Of Sound, Al Jourgensen confirmed that Ministry are planning to hit the studio on January 1 to begin recording their new album. On top of that, he also said that he may be making new music with Revolting Cocks and Lard (his side project with former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra).
Jourgensen said the following:
“This [fall] tour pretty much closes out our touring on ‘AmeriKKKant’, and then we immediately, as of the first of the year, go into starting to record the new Ministry record. I have a studio in my house that is currently under construction to make it ready for next year. So when I go back, we’ll go right into production on a new Ministry record and just record for, like, the next six months — very similar to what we did for [1988’s] ‘[The Land Of] Rape And Honey’ — and just record a bunch.”
He also added that the recording may take awhile due to him getting “sidetracked” with Lard and Revolting Cocks:
“My neighbor right down the street is Gary Numan, so we may hook up together on some stuff. We just talked about that the other day. That may happen, so who knows, it may take a full year, maybe two years before the Ministry record comes out, but we start recording January 1st.”
As for his plans with Lard, he said:
“I have a feeling that next year, me and Jello Biafra are gonna do a couple of Lard songs. As a matter of fact, it’s not a feeling. I know that as a fact. So, we’re gonna kind of resurrect that.”
