KILLING JOKE

KILLING JOKE¬†confirm that all hope is probably lost (or at least missing) with their first new studio material in over seven years…

Enter the ‚ÄėLORD of CHAOS‚Äô¬†EP¬†‚Äď two brand new recordings, plus two re-workings of songs from the confrontational UK band‚Äôs last studio album,¬†‚ÄėPylon‚Äô¬†(2015).

‚ÄúI‚Äôve never known anything like the time we are living in now; not since the Cuban Missile crisis but now in comparison we have multiple flash points.¬†Lord of Chaos¬†is about complex systems failure, when technology overloads and A.I. misreads the enemies intentions.‚ÄĚ -¬†Dr Jaz Coleman.

To support and celebrate the arrival of new music, Killing Joke are set to undertake their first UK run in over three years, 2022’s Honour The Fire tour.

This 11 date tour will start with a just-announced intimate warm-up show at the Frog & Fiddle in Cheltenham on Sunday, March 27th; it will conclude in London at the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith on Saturday, April 9th which is being filmed.

Killing Joke¬†is very much music as ritual ‚Äď raw, uncompromising and precisely-targeted lyrically; and¬†Dr Jaz Coleman,¬†Geordie,¬†Youth¬†and¬†Big Paul, founding fathers of the group and an ongoing influence on both alternative music and (counter) culture in general,¬†show absolutely¬†no¬†signs of¬†mellowing.

With collective nostrils flared and righteous anger carried torch-high, The Four continue to take their music of resistance to fresh levels.

Consider yourself warned.
