New record in September; live dates to follow a month later

Killing Joke have confirmed the rescheduled dates for the release of their new album and their subsequent UK shows.

The band will now release XIII: Feast Of Fools on September 6, with their live dates at The Picture House, Edinburgh and Hammersmith Apollo, London to take place on October 15 and 16 respectively.

Killing Joke bass player Youth said: “We have survived equipment being hi-jacked, tapes being withheld, nervous breakdowns, family bereavements, blood lettings, and a host of other challenges of Biblical proportions. But we are now at the final ascent, and I have to say it’s one of the greatest albums I have ever had the privilege to be involved with… EVER! I have been living and breathing it for over four months now, and I’m still jaw-droppingly amazed at its power & beauty.

“It is with great pain that we had to make the decision to postpone the European & American tour until later in the year, but the wait will be worth it. I guarantee double orgasms all round when you hear the sound of Big Paul’s drum kit reducing your senses to a pulp!”
