Ministry's Al Jourgensen readying tunes for Rock Band video gamers

Ministry's Al Jourgensen may have unpacked his road cases for good, but he's sure not kicking back, smoking cigars and drinking bottles of red wine. Uh, well, hold on now...

Nevertheless, Uncle Al is keeping his fingers in all sorts of pies, such as having three of his Ministry songs make up the Ministry Three Pack soon to be made available for the Rock BandT Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft on and the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.

Starting May 26 for Xbox 360® and May 28 for PLAYSTATION 3, you'll be able to download the Ministry Three Pack which includes the Grammy-nominated songs "The Great Satan" and "Lieslieslies" from Rio Grand Blood, and, from The Wicked Soundtrack, "Cuz U R Next." The pack will retail for $5.49/440 Microsoft Points, or you can download the individual songs for $1.99/160 Microsoft Points each.

And if you just can't get enough of Al and the gang, be sure and pick up a copy of Adios ...Puta Madres, a double-DVD set that documents the band's 2008 final world tour, "C U LaTouR," that will be in stores May 26. Adios...Puta Madres features 15 live performance tracks and a 45-minute on-the-road "rockumentary" that follows the band from rehearsals all the way to their final shows in Europe. The Rock Band Music Store has more than 670 tracks available to date via disc and download purchase (complete list of tracks at ). Rock BandT2 is available for Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 system, PlayStation 2 system and Wii system.
