Killing Joke to release new single on 20th September

Killing Joke will release a new single on September 20th via Spinefarm Records UK; titled ‘European Super State’, this is the second single to be issued from this hugely influential UK outfit’s forthcoming studio album, ‘Absolute Dissent’, now confirmed for a September 27th release, also on Spinefarm Records UK.

‘European Super State’ – the follow-up to ‘In Excelsis’, released back in July – features the original Killing Joke line-up (the first time these musicians have worked together in almost 30 years!), and will be available on CD and download complete with previously unreleased studio recordings & remixes.

With a reputation forged in fire, brimstone and magic, Killing Joke have long been one of rock’s most iconic outfits. Over the years, the band members have chosen to develop their talents in a variety of ways: triple Grammy winner Jaz Coleman, for instance, has established an international reputation working with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras, whilst Martin ‘Youth’ Glover has become one of the UK’s most celebrated producers, supervising albums from the Verve & Primal Scream amongst others, as well as achieving major success as one half of highly-regarded duo, The Orb.

Covered by Metallica, Foo Fighters and more, Killing Joke’s apocalyptic vision continues to draw praise from such high-profile supporters as Jimmy Page and Billy Corgan, and the band’s considerable musical legacy can be heard in the works of Nirvana, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails and the like – artists whose rise to fame never saw them cutting ties with the underground/alternative scene.

Once described by drummer Paul Ferguson as ‘the sound of the earth vomiting’, Killing Joke are now poised to take their music of resistance to a whole new level, both in the studio and on the road.

October UK Tour Dates:

15th – Picture House, Edinburgh
16th – Hammersmith Apollo, London
