Legendary post-punk band Killing Joke celebrate their 40th anniversary with a show at the 02 Academy in Liverpool on April 1st as well as first UK dates in 3 years.
Gatherers of the World, Killing Joke are delighted to announce their first UK tour in over three years, 2022’s Honour The Fire tour.
Added to that, there’s brand new music from the band in the form of the Lord Of Chaos EP, this is shaping up to be a boss way to spend April’s Fools Day. You know it makes sense.
“The fire is that which brings us all together. And after this dreadful pandemic this tour will be like no other. One great mosh pit!“ – promises Jaz Coleman.
“The fire in our hearts that has sustained and protected us for over 40 years, never goes out.
It is our privilege to Honour The Fire and celebrate the white heat purification by sound. Join with us in a fearless leap through the sacred flames, into the unknown….let’s create the future we all desire, by sonically destroying the one we don’t” – Youth
Killing Joke’s 10 date tour will start at the Tramshed in Cardiff on Monday, 28th March, before concluding in London at Eventim Apollo Hammersmith on Saturday 9th April.
Very much music as ritual – raw, uncompromising and precisely-targeted lyrically; Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth & Big Paul, the original Killing Joke personnel show no signs of mellowing.
With collective nostrils flared and righteous anger carried torch-high, Killing Joke continue to take their music of resistance to fresh levels…
Tickets in all the usual places.
