Ministry Reschedule Anniversary Tour to 2022, Add Melvins + Corrosion of Conformity
Industrial legends Ministry have rescheduled yet again their U.S. tour in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the landmark The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste album. A new set of dates has just been announced featuring special guests Melvins and Corrosion of Conformity.
