KILLING JOKE announce European Tour includes intimate London show plus Special Guest appearances with Guns n’ Roses

atherers of the UK and Europe, Killing Joke are delighted to announce a series of shows for the summer… “As always, we're looking forward to seeing many familiar faces out there, but also meeting some first-timers. It's wonderful to still be playing live for you, so hope you can join us…” Killing Joke will start the tour with an intimate show at the Scala in North London on Monday, June 12th, before heading into mainland Europe; this run of dates includes 2 shows as Special Guests to Guns n’ Roses in Poland and Germany.

Watch now, Killing Joke’s latest video, the apocalyptic ‘New Cold War’, directed by long-term associate / designer, Mike Coles:

‘New Cold War’ is taken from Killing Joke’s 16th studio album, ‘Pylon’, the band’s third consecutive release via Spinefarm Records; ‘Pylon’ entered the UK charts at No.16, giving the band their highest official UK chart entry in 21 years, their third highest ever! In true KJ fashion, ‘Pylon’ is very much music as ritual – raw, uncompromising and precisely-targeted lyrically; proof that Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth & Big Paul, the original Killing Joke personnel, are currently delivering the best and most relevant material of their career, with no mellowing or softening of the edges getting in the way.

With collective nostrils flared and righteous anger carried torch-high, Killing Joke continue to take their music of resistance to fresh levels, both in the studio and out on the road…
