Ministry are releasing two “Lost Mixes” of Everyday (Is Halloween) through Cleopatra Records next month on a new 12-inch vinyl single. On the record is two newly unearthed and previously unreleased mixes of Ministry’s classic 1985 single “Everyday (Is Halloween),” with another the previously unreleased song “Playground” as the B-side.
The “Everyday (Is Halloween)” The Lost Mixes single is due out on Devils Night, aka October 30th, and will be pressed on colored vinyl. It can be pre-ordered here.
In the product description for the release, the mixes described as the Dirt Mix and Dirt Dub, have been “unearthed from studio tapes” and are labeled as being “extended and hypnotic offering glimpses of the industrial direction that Ministry founder Al Jourgensen was heading in.”
On Side 2 along with “Playground” is an unissued instrumental version of “I See Red,” a song from 1985 that first appeared on Ministry’s Trax! Box back in 2015.
The cover art is an orange variant of the original “All Day”/”Everyday (Is Halloween)” double A-sided single, originally issued through Wax! Trax Records.
