We will be releasing our new album in April 2012 which will be preceded by a UK tour (see below) and followed by a European tour. On the eve of those UK dates, an EP will suddenly appear on both Ltd Vinyl and Download which will contain a variety of brand new and ‘mix’ tracks.
We are also delighted to announce that after a short absence, Mike Coles will be back in the visuals chair and that the original line up remains intact. Mike has also been working on something special for the ‘Down By The River’ DVD, which we’ll share with you all soon via our official website www.killingjoke.com.
The album will come out (as did the last) on Spinefarm/Universal Records and is 100% finished and mastered… last minute arguments on track listing aside. We genuinely believe however, that this is our masterpiece and hope you will too. So, a few track names to whet your appetite;
- ‘Pole Shift’
- ‘Fema Camp’
- ‘Colony Collapse’
We welcome your interpretation on what those songs might be about.
In the meantime, we’re happy to say that ‘Down By The River’, our live album recorded at Royal Festival Hall, is now upon us. Thank you to all those gatherers that pledged and helped get this record way past 200% of our target. Those that did will have the download version of the record already, and your physical issues will be winging their way to you imminently. You can still buy the record via PledgeMusic, by clicking the button below.
Both Jaz and Youth will be coming at you with new projects via this and social channels soon…
So long, and we leave you with a reminder of those live dates.
