|Killing Joke In Excelsis Limited Edition Double Coloured Vinyl 10 Inch Set
WITH A reputation forged in fire, brimstone and magic, Killing Joke have long been one of rock’s most iconic & influential outfits with a string of revered recordings to their name.
Covered by Metallica, Foo Fighters and more, Killing Joke’s apocalyptic vision continues to draw praise from such high-profile supporters as Jimmy Page and Billy Corgan, and the band’s considerable musical legacy can be heard in the works of Nirvana, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails and the like – artists whose rise to fame never saw them cutting ties with the underground/alternative scene.
Over the years, the band members have chosen to develop their talents in a variety of ways: triple Grammy winner Jaz Coleman, for instance, has established an international reputation working with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras, whilst Martin ‘Youth’ Glover has become one of the UK’s most celebrated producers, supervising albums from the Verve & Primal Scream amongst others, as well as achieving major success as one half of highly-regarded duo, The Orb.
Once described by Paul Ferguson as ‘the sound of the earth vomiting’, Killing Joke are now poised to take their music of resistance to a whole new level, both in the studio and on the road.
As ever, the journey won’t be easily forgotten… whether those involved wish to do so or not!
30 years since first bonding in blood, the original KJ line-up of Jaz Coleman (vocals), Geordie (guitar), Youth (bass) and Paul Ferguson (drums) are set to release an EP of fresh material – the first fruits of a new worldwide deal with the Spinefarm Records label.
Titled the ‘In Excelsis’ EP, the record will be available as a double coloured vinyl hand-numbered 10”; a CD version – complete with bonus dub Remix – will also be included with the package, The 10 Inch Double Coloured Vinyl (Limited to 1000 copies) is exclusive to What Records.
