Ministry - Sign With AFM Records, Unveil New Album Cover Art

US industrial metal veterans Ministry have signed a worldwide deal with AFM Records. The band will release their highly-anticipated comeback album Relapse on March 3rd, 2012. Prior to the album, Ministry have released a digital single, entitled "99%" on December 23rd, 2011, now available on iTunes. Currently, Al Jourgensen is finalizing the last mixes on the new material. In the meantime, the band revealed the new album cover art, which can be seen below.

Al Jourgensen commented: "Our 13th Planet Record releases have been distributed in Europe via AFM through our partner Soulfood Music in Germany for several years now, and we have established a solid business relationship, so it made perfect sense to take the next step and have AFM Records come on board and be involved with the new Ministry release for worldwide and digital distribution. I'm pretty psyched about the collaboration, based on the response and enthusiasm I've received from AFM so far..."

Hmmmmmmmmmm... Don't know what to think about this. I didn't mind that much that Minsitry ended their career on a quite high note. Don't see the point in going on. it would be great if this album proves me wrong.

Just listened to a bit of 99%. It's above average, if just barely.

Highly anticipated by who? There are bands that didn't split up who had bigger gaps between releases than this Ministry "comeback"

Another band using a break up for money making purposes mayhaps? I seriously doubt the 3 or so years will be enough to energise them into something worthwhile.

So Adios Puta Madre will be followed by Need to Pay Rent Puta Madre? Wait and see I guess.

Eminem had an album called Relapse come out as a "comeback" album and it was awful. I'm not really a Ministry fan, but I hope it's better than the other Relapse.

Actually Al was having some serious medical issues and thought he was on death's door so he ended the band. Now though he has fully healed/recovered and honestly didn't even want to revive Ministry initially but him and Mike Scaccia were producing an album for another band and got bored one day and start writing some stuff, just fukn around in the studio, and Mike thought it was really good stuff and convinced Al that they should revive Ministry with this new material and Al agreed after some convincing because he did miss the life.

Here's hoping they bury Tommy Victor in the mix.
