Killing Joke at Irving Plaza, December 2010 (more by Greg Cristman)
Killing Joke

"Considering it's supposed to be the end of the world in a short time, it gives me great pleasure to announce a new singles album with some real rarities on it, shortly followed by a new studio recording. The book 'Letters From Cythera' is coming out, and yes, gigs are starting in March. Have a great 2012 and fuck the Mayans! After all, their calendar didn't predict their own demise..." - Jaz Coleman

Exciting news to hear that Killing Joke will not only welcome a new album (late 2013), but that the legendary band will celebrate 35 years with THE SINGLES COLLECTION 1979-2012 on April 15, 2013!

And the hits keep on coming! Killing Joke have announced a new set of dates as well that include a stop at Irving Plaza on April 19. Ticketing information is on the way. All dates are listed below.

In other news, the previously discussed Killing Joke documentary scheduled for 2012 has been pushed to 2013.
