Hey Friends!!

This will be short and sweet…I hope.  There is a lot happening in the next few weeks and we want to relay the information to you in the most direct way possible.




As some of you know, preorders for Industrial Accident in all formats and variant editions for the film and soundtrack are open now, ahead of the official release date of 4/16/19.

Two important things to note about the preorders:

1. The expanded “Cash Grab” Box Edition will come with a bonus mystery 7-inch with **PREORDERS ONLY!!
After preorders close in April the Cash Grab Box will NOT include this extra special item.
2. In addition, the Box has been moving pretty quickly and we only have a limited amount left in stock. There is a good chance we sell out of this edition before the April 16 release date. If you have been on the fence about buying one of these beauties, the train may be leaving the station fairly soon. -You’ve been warned.

Note: For those of you who have been emailing on why it hasn’t shipped yet – The official release date is APRIL 16th, 2019. and will ship right around that date.




As part of the soundtrack launch, WAX TRAX! has pressed a special edition exclusively for Record Store Day 2019.
Ask your local stores about the special RSD Limited Edition blue vinyl and get this baby in your hands before anyone else on Record Store Day – April 13, 2019.
We will not be selling this special edition anywhere outside RSD events. When they’re gone, they’re gone.. Collectors, start your engines!!


As an extension of the RSD launch, we’ve cooked up something very special.
Wax Trax! is hitting the road with our friends at Vans and RSD to bring INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT to select cities. We will be screening the film FREE in 6 locations around the US and Canada. As if the documentary wasn’t enough, these events will include a live performance by MINISTRY playing Wax Trax! era jams!!!  I’ve seen the playlist and I promise that this will be one you don’t want to miss. Cold Cave is opening for Ministry in each city.

We are kicking off this mini-tour in our hometown of CHICAGO on April 13, 2019 at HOUSE OF VANS.

Tour Cities and Dates:
4/13 -Chicago
4/15 – Brooklyn
4/17 – Toronto
4/19 – Austin
4/22 – SanFran
4/23 – LA

We will have more details on venues and instructions coming very soon!

So how does a Wax Trax! and Ministry fan secure these event tickets you may ask? (and oh how you’ve asked)

There are two official ways to get tickets to the screenings & concerts.

1. VIP: Two VIP tickets for guaranteed entry will only be available on Record Store Day (4/13/19) with the purchase of the IA soundtrack (Ltd Ed blue vinyl) at select record stores in above screening cities. The complete list of specific VIP Ticket stores will be released through Wax Trax! / RSD / Vans closer to Record Store Day.

2. GA: General Admission tickets are free. A RSVP link will become available and we will pass along the info closer to RSD.

However, one very important note. Once the venue has reached capacity GA entry is not guaranteed. What this means is after VIP tickets enter, if there is only room for let’s say 439 seats left until capacity, if you are #439 in line, you will be totally good…If you are #440 in line, you will not be very happy.
Everybody who RSVPs will have the same chance as long as you’re there before the cut off. and YES, we expect all these shows will reach sold out capacity.
Our suggestion – GET IN LINE EARLY!

We will have more details on GA ticket RSVPs coming soon!
