Killing Joke Announce “Laugh At Your Peril” 40th Anniversary World Tour

Killing Joke have announced the dates for their “Laugh At Your Peril” 40th anniversary tour. You can check those out below. With this news, the group have also announced that they will be releasing a limited edition career-spanning flight case. It will come with 16 colored double vinyls, headphones, a signed lyric book, and assorted pieces of art. A CD version is also available as well. Pre-orders can be found HERE.

Frontman Jaz Coleman commented:

“Forty years ago this summer I met Big Paul. One year later, we released our first EP. Our 40th-anniversary celebrations will therefore be stretched over two years and begin with a world tour, parties and talks by Youth and myself, a new magnum opus by Killing Joke, who is, after all this time, recognized as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time. Love is the law. Let the festivities begin!”

Bassist Youth added:

“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 four 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 roller-coaster, white-knuckle punch in the face of beautiful agony/reality and timeless cosmic joy and soul.

To commit to the creative beauty and vision you have as an artist is an almost perverse way to live a life and the cost and consequences are immense… yet this is how we inform ourselves as a society of what is real and important in a world of fake news and fake emotions. Like Shiva dancing the world into existence, we are all simultaneously destroying and creating every moment of our reality. It is not through politics that the world is changed but through art. Art alone can tell us who we really are — emotionally, intellectually and physically — far better than anything else. That is why we have committed so much, for so long to this one idea… Killing Joke. Thanks to all the fans and gatherers that have supported and joined us in this endless quest.”
