The original Killing Joke line-up announces the ‘Lord of Chaos’ EP, their first new material in 7 years

Killing Joke

As the Doomsday Clock hits 100 seconds to midnight, the original Killing Joke line-up announces a new EP and an 11-date tour!

Killing Joke confirm that all hope is probably lost (or at least missing) with their first new studio material in over seven years. Enter the ‘Lord of Chaos‘ EP– two brand new recordings, plus two re-workings of songs from the confrontational UK band’s last studio album, ‘Pylon (2015).

I’ve never known anything like the time we are living in now; not since the Cuban Missile crisis but now in comparison we have multiple flashpoints,” reveals Jaz Coleman. “Lord of Chaos is about complex systems failure when technology overloads and A.I. misreads the enemies intentions.”

Track-listing
1 Lord of Chaos
2 Total
3 Big Buzz (Motorcade Mix)
4 Delete In Dub (Youth’s Disco 45 Dystopian Dub)

Tracks one and two were produced by Killing Joke and mixed by Tom Dalgety, and they set the tone for the band’s next studio album, currently being worked on in Prague.

Meanwhile, the next two tracks give a fresh spin to numbers from the ‘Pylon’ album – ‘Big Buzz’ having been re-mixed by Dalgety and Nick Evans, and ‘Delete’ getting the full Dub treatment courtesy of Killing Joke’s Youth.

To support and celebrate the arrival of new music, Killing Joke are set to undertake their first UK run in over three years, 2022’s ‘Honour The Fire’ tour.
This 11 date tour will start with a just-announced intimate warm-up show at the Frog & Fiddle in Cheltenham on Sunday, March 27th and will conclude in London at the Eventim ApolloHammersmith on Saturday, April 9th which is being filmed.

Dr Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth and Big Paul, the founding fathers of the band (and an ongoing influence on both alternative music and (counter) culture) show absolutely no signs of mellowing. With collective nostrils flared and righteous anger carried torch-high, The four continue to take their music of resistance to fresh levels.

Consider yourself warned.
