Al Jourgensen of Ministry has been in contact with Paul Barker, former bassist and collaborator from 1986 to 2003.
Uncle Al tells Billboard, "We're actually talking about doing something in the very near future, so who knows what may pop up on the next Ministry album. That's really gonna get the old school crowd going. I just got off the phone with him, in fact."
The Billboard interview continued with Jourgensen stating, "These people I haven't dealt with or seen in years are becoming a prevalent part of my life again," Jourgensen notes. He says the conversations have been "awesome, man. It's like riding a bike. You know how to do it. It was something that was long overdue on both his part and my part. A lot of external factors -- whether it be management, previous relationships, ex-wives, things like that -- is what interfered with this partnership continuing. I think all the barriers have just dissipated through the process of time and healing. I think there could really be something to this."
Al has also made a guest appearance on the debut album Beauty in Chaos lending vocals and hermonica on the T-Rex cover of “20th century boy.” The album also includes Ice-T and members of Cheap Trick, The Cure and Mission U.K. and is the brain child of Schecter Guitars President Michael Ciravolo.
Ministry is currently on their last leg of their U.S. tour supporting the Amerikkkant Album which has been voted top 30 metal albums of 2018 by Loudwire, coming in at number 24.
