"Lots of magic and alchemy and fierce politik"

The mighty Killing Joke have announced more details of their forthcoming UK spring tour, with Youth giving clues as to what might happen. Apparently we'll be enjoying "the most comprehensive career-spanning shows to date". He added that as far as ideas in their minds before the tour go, "Cold austerity versus wild abandon seems to be an overall dynamic... with themes ranging from the times we are living in through to intense personal admissions, and lots of magic and alchemy and fierce politik."

Youth also said that there are more plans for Killing Joke in 2012: "Some are still secret and will be announced officially on the website. One I am closely involved with and getting closer to finishing is the Killing Joke In Dub album that will be available next year. It really is bone-crunchingly heavy!" The Icarus Line have been confirmed as support.
