Among the names recently announced for the 2012 edition of Germany's famed Wacken Open Air Festival are industrial veterans Ministry. The announcement may come as a surprise for many, considering the band supposedly called it quits back in 2008, even embarking on a "C-U-LaTour."
There is no word yet on whether or not this performance will be a one-off, but fans who have never seen the band live may be well-advised to purchase their tickets early. The festival will take place next year from August 2-4.
Other bands confirmed for next year's festival include: Scorpions, Cradle of Filth, Hammerfall, Amon Amarth, Gamma Ray and U.D.O.
