A brand new studio album is going to be delivered to shelves by September 6th, and the new album is entitled "From Beer to Eternity".

Obviously, this sounds like some good ol' Ministry. Apparently, the album wasn't even scheduled to happen until the band spontaneously had a remarkable recording session, laying down track after track until they figured, hey, let's just release another album.

Sadly, guitarist Mike Scaccia passed away just after recording sessions for the album were complete.

The album is now basically a testament to Scaccia and the band as a whole, as lead singer Al Jourgen feels the album is a "tribute" to Scaccia and "all the years we spent making music together."

We'll have more details about "From Beer to Eternity" soon...
