Killing Joke release ‘Lord Of Chaos’, their first new material in 7 years!

Killing Joke confirm that all hope is probably lost (or at least missing) with their first new studio material in over seven years.

UK tour starts in March this year

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.

Lord of Chaos is about complex systems failure, when technology overloads and A.I. misreads the enemies intentions.” – Dr Jaz Coleman. 

The ‘Lord of Chaos’ EP will be available on CD, digital and vinyl formats. EP will be available on 25th March and will include three different limited edition 12” vinyl variants – Green and Black splatter, ultra-clear vinyl and black vinyl, you can order now from the link below.

Track-listing:-

1 Lord of Chaos

2 Total

3 Big Buzz (Motorcade Mix)

4 Delete In Dub (Youth’s Disco 45 Dystopian Dub)

Tracks 1 & 2 – Produced by Killing Joke and Mixed by Tom Dalgety – set the tone for the band’s next studio album, currently being worked on in Prague.

Meanwhile, Tracks 3 & 4 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 KJ’s Youth, who has a longstanding reputation in this area.

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; it will conclude in London at the Eventim ApolloHammersmith on Saturday, April 9th which is being filmed.

Killing Joke is very much music as ritual – raw, uncompromising and precisely-targeted lyrically; and Dr Jaz ColemanGeordieYouth and Big Paul, founding fathers of the group and an ongoing influence on both alternative music and (counter) culture in general, 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.

The full list of ‘Honour The Fire’ UK 2022 shows.

The Imbeciles are supporting on all dates (except Cheltenham), and Brix Smith is the special guest in London.
