LAMC Productions is thrilled to welcome American Industrial Metal Juggernauts, MINISTRY, led by Al Jourgensen, along with special guests, Industrial rockers, FILTER, to Singapore on Oct 4, 2017, at Zepp @ Bigbox Singapore!
"The crowd was a hot mess of energy. Mosh pits swirled, shoes were lost"
The Void Report, on Ministry’s latest tour.
This will be MINISTRY’s first ever show in Singapore! The set list gives a nod to their past with Just One Fix, N.W.O, Stigmata, Thieves, So What as well as their brutal more recent songs Punch in the Face, Lies Lies Lies. This isn’t the Industrial Revolution, this is the Industrial Insurgency as MINISTRY and FILTER combine to create their own energy source: fuelled by rib crushing riffs, thunderous rhythms and body slamming tunes. This is one tour that will leave fans emotionally charged and one you will NOT want to miss.
Ministry’s machine-gun beats and crushing guitars make other heavy bands seem rather faceless in comparison. Founder and frontman Al Jourgensen, dressed like a haunting voodoo priest, tears through songs with his indelicate roar and gives the band a greater aura of style and theatrics.
Al “Fucking” Jourgensen is the undisputed king of industrial music. The Godfather of a genre he helped to create and mold into something millions of fans have grown to love throughout its 30+ years in development. You can’t say his name without thinking of heavy guitar riffs, crushing drum beats and unmistakable samples. Even his image is iconic and recognizable. You immediately think of a man in black, with top hat and flowing dreadlocks.
1985 - 86 were milestone years for Jourgensen. This is where he established himself as a force to be reckoned with releasing two iconic and powerful releases. The newly discovered Ministry, producing the heavy dark, industrial sound, Twitch and just months later, the equally iconic sounds of the Revolting Cocks, Big Sexy Land on Wax Trax!
In the early 90’s Jourgensen and Ministry found critical and commercial success. One of which being Grammy nominated for the now legendary 1992 album, Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs. The track, N.W.O. bringing not only the Grammy nod, but the Ministry name to the mainstream.
To date, he’s earned the respect of his peers around the world from bands like Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and KMFDM. Jourgensen continues to influence and change in his many different incarnations. His style is and always will be deeply rooted in Industrial, but he’s not afraid to venture out and create new forms as most recently can be heard in his latest project, Surgical Meth Machine.
Industrial rock behemoths FILTER will be joining MINISTRY! Led by Richard Patrick, FILTER bring their larger than life live performance to Singapore for the first time too! Having recently released their 7th album “Crazy Eyes”, this will be your chance to listen to all your favourite tracks – Take A Picture, Hey Man Nice Shot, Welcome To The Fold, Trip Like I Do plus more!

Filter emerged as one of the most popular bands in the mid-'90s post-industrial alternative scene. Vocalist and primary member Richard Patrick had been a guitarist with Nine Inch Nails during the Pretty Hate Machine and Broken eras. In 1993, Patrick decided to leave NIN to form his own band.
