Killing Joke (Jaz Coleman) at Irving (more by Tim Griffin)
With a reputation forged in fire, brimstone and magic, Killing Joke have long been one of rock's most iconic & influential outfits.Recent video confirms the new album is on the way. So far future Killing Joke live dates are mostly limited to the EU, but they do have a lonely pair of US dates laid out for the late spring: June 5th in LA at The Wiltern and May 21st at Irving Plaza in NYC. Tickets are on sale for the Irving date.
Now, 30 years since first bonding in blood, the original line-up of Jaz Coleman (vocals), Geordie (guitar), Youth (bass) and Paul Ferguson(drums) are set to start work on their 13th studio album - the first fruits of a new worldwide deal with the Spinefarm Records label.
Set for release in April 2010, this latest set of recordings (title to be confirmed) will see the aforementioned musicians sharing studio space for the first time in 27 years, having already road-tested their relationship with sold-out shows around the world, kicking off in Tokyo last Autumn.
