Ministry Cancel Fall European/UK Tour With The 69 Eyes & Wednesday 13

Ministry have cancelled their European/UK tour with The 69 Eyes and Wednesday 13. The trek was previously scheduled to take place this fall.

The news was confirmed by Wednesday 13:

“Hello everyone! We were told yesterday that the @weareministry European tour has been canceled and that’s all the info we have at the moment. This is truly beyond our control and we are devastated with this news. We hope to get a new headline tour booked soon so we can get back to our fans in Europe and the UK.”

The Damnation Festival in Manchester, UK also issued the following statement:

“We’ve just been told, literally minutes ago by e-mail, that Ministry have cancelled their entire European tour due to a festival they were due to play on that run being cancelled without any warning.

This is obviously a huge blow to Damnation, albeit not one that will have any impact on it taking place in Manchester in November.

We haven’t really had a chance to digest the news, or even start to consider a replacement as yet, but we didn’t want our fans to find out via third parties, or worse, have Ministry fans buying tickets tonight when we know they won’t be playing.

This is the statement we’ve been sent from the band:

‘Due to previously unforeseen circumstances, including the recent cancelation of a festival, we are forced to cancel our fall Europe tour. Hope to see you all next summer.'”

Wednesday 13 Premieres “Insides Out” Music Video

Wednesday 13 has premiered a new video for his new song “Insides Out.” This track is from the frontman’s new album “Horrifier,” which will be released on October 7. Wednesday 13 commented:

“Our latest single ‘Insides Out’ is a very heavy song, so it only made sense to make a video to match the sound! Torture and violence is the main theme of this song, and we continue along the lines of the last music video with another horror movie theme here too.”

Wednesday 13 To Release New Album “Horrifier” In October, Premieres “You’re So Hideous” Music Video

Wednesday 13 will be releasing a new album, titled “Horrifier,” on October 7. Pre-orders can be found HERE.

“Horrifier” Track Listing:

01. “Severed”
02. “Insides Out”
03. “Exhume And Devour”
04. “You’re So Hideous”
05. “Good Day To Be A Bad Guy”
06. “Return To Haddonfield”
07. “Horrifier”
08. “Hell Is Coming”
09. “Halfway To The Grave”
10. “Christine: Fury In The Night”
11. “The Other Side”

Wednesday 13 commented:

“The last three releases have seen the band explore new ground with heavier songs, drums, and vocals. Coming out of the Covid crisis, I promised I would not release a sad, depressing record. I wanted to make a fun, horror themed rock record that would be reminiscent of the first few Wednesday 13 records. The new album is a fun, fast-paced, thriller!”

A video for the effort’s first single, “You’re So Hideous,” can be found below. He added the following about that:

“‘You’re So Hideous‘ is such a catchy track and it’s one of the very first ones I wrote for the album. Lyrically, it’s a modern day Medusa story… Beware the stare into her eyes. The music video was of course inspired by ‘The Exorcist‘ film and was a lot of fun recreating that.”

Wednesday 13 Recruits Former W.A.S.P. Drummer Mike Dupke

The U.S. run will go from Sept 4th thru Oct 23rd. Then it will be over to Europe in November to support the mighty MINISTRY on their tour! Can’t wait to throw down with Wednesday and the boys! GET YOUR GRAVE ON!!!!”

Wednesday 13 Pays Tribute To Late Murderdolls Bandmate Joey Jordison During Albuquerque, NM Show

During his March 23 show in Albuquerque, NM, Wednesday 13 paid tribute to his late Murderdolls bandmate Joey Jordison (ex-Slipknot) with a performance of the band’s song “Nowhere.” You can see fan-filmed footage of that below. Wednesday 13 told the crowd the following:

“This part of the show I’d like to make some noise for our brother Joey Jordison. He left us far too soon. He was one of the most talented people I ever met. And he’s the reason any of you guys know who I am. So we picked a couple of songs, some of my favorite songs we liked to play with Joey. We’re gonna take it back about 12 years ago to the [Murderdolls’ 2010 album] ‘Women And Children Last’. This is called ‘Nowhere’.”
