The Last Sucker is Ministry's eleventh studio album, released on September 18, 2007. According to a May 2006 interview with mainman Al Jourgensen, it will be the band's last studio release of original material.
Jourgensen told Billboard that he had "...other things to do. I just started a label (13th Planet Records), and I want to sign some bands and really build it up like I did with WaxTrax in the '80s, not just a vanity label. I think it's time, and I'll be leaving on the top of my game instead of hanging on too long and doing crappy Aerosmith and Rolling Stones albums thirty years later."
The album is the final part in Ministry's trilogy of albums attacking the George W. Bush administration, following 2004's Houses of the Molé and 2006's Rio Grande Blood.
"That seems to be my muse; everyone seems to think I write real shitty music when a Democrat's in office. So we'll do that one, and then me and George Bush go riding off hand-in-hand, into the sunset."
Fear Factory frontman Burton C. Bell recorded some guest vocals for the album. 
On July 17th, 2007, a promotional copy of the album was leaked on the internet. A week earlier lyrics and full credits for the album were released by SureShotWorx on their official website.
A Best Buy exclusive version of the CD contains remixes of "Watch Yourself" and "The Last Sucker."
The final track, "End of Days Part Two", contains a lengthy sample from 34th President of the United States Dwight Eisenhower's farewell address, warning about the dangers of the "military-industrial complex".
