In preparation for their return to the road, Killing Joke have unveiled the apocalyptic ‘New Cold War’ video directed by long-term associate / designer, Mike Coles…watch it below
‘New Cold War’ is taken from Killing Joke’s 16th studio album, ‘Pylon’, which entered the UK charts at No. 16 giving the band their highest official chart entry in 21 years and third highest ever.
As always with the Joke, ‘Pylon’ is very much music as ritual – raw, uncompromising and precisely-targeted lyrically; proof that Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth & Big Paul, the original KJ 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, and a new single / video (from the ‘Pylon’ album) will be released in advance of the tour.
