“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 …” - Jaz Coleman
Killing Joke celebrate their 35th anniversary with ‘The Singles Collection 1979-2012’, a career-spanning compilation covering their ever-evolving story through a series of dark, apocalyptic songs, successfully combining disco and funk and a shamanic wisdom with the dark side of the punk fall-out.
Killing Joke, with their original line-up of Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth & Big Paul continuing to hold firm, have now signed a new deal with Spinefarm, and will soon set about recording a third studio album for the label, with Youth once again at the production helm. The release date is likely to be early 2014.
