Says front man Jaz Coleman; "Forty years ago this summer I met Big Paul, one year later we released our first EP. Our fortieth anniversary celebrations will therefore be stretched over 2 years and begins with a world tour, parties and talks by Youth and myself, a new magnum opus by KJ, who is ,after all this time, recognised as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time. Love is the law let the festivities begin!"
Adds Youth; “Forty years in the wilderness. Thought that was supposed to be 40 days. As Jaz reminds me “Survival is success” and although the band have never been fiscally fat commercially, it has allowed us to have incredible lives, both individually and collectively and we have created a very rich wealth of uncompromising music. It’s a legacy, that spans 4 decades ….40 years of spine tingling, uncompromising beautiful noise.
The band continue to inspire and bludgeon down the bullshit in the world into a white hot, blast furnace Dub of unrelenting passion, a rollercoaster, white knuckle punch in the face of beautiful agony/reality and timeless cosmic joy and soul."
Killing Joke's tour started in the United States at the Studio Seven in Seattle on Saturday, 1st September, before heading into mainland Europe. This run of 45 shows concludes at the Roundhouse in London on Saturday, 17th November.
