I'll agree that hopefully now they can go out on a higher note that C U L8 Tour, but I'm sick of all these bands retiring and coming back to tarnish their legacies. Hopefully Ministry's not the same.
In all actuallity, between Psalm 69 and Animostisomnia the band took an average of three to four years between albums (Psalm 69 in 1992, Filth Pig in 1996, Dark Side...in 1999 and Animositisomnia in 2003), and I was younger then and didn't follow tours or anything, so it was like the band disappeared during all those periods in between. So this return in 2012 after the last album in 2007, it's just like another long lull in Ministry inactivity for me.
