Killing Joke enregistrera en août
Increvables de chez increvables. Le groupe retournera bel et bien en studio pour l’enregistrement d’un troisième album de rang pour Spinefarm/Universal, successeur programmé des deux très bons Absolute Dissent (2010) et MMXII (2012). Kevin « Geordie » Walker a déjà travaillé sur une presque dizaine de nouveaux titres. Le groupe projette d’avoir terminé le disque pour une sortie en… septembre 2014.
Il annonce aussi la parution imminente de la fabrication sonore de Youth nommée KJ in Dub, triple album de versions alternatives attendu depuis des plombes. Il se confirme en outre que Youth est à pied d’œuvre sur les prochains enregistrements de Peter Murphy et Echo & The Bunnymen. De son côté, Jaz Coleman embarque sur une série de dates solo en spoken word, pour la promotion de son nouvel ouvrage.
Enfin, sachez que le documentaire The Death and Resurrection Show est finalisé.
Pour un aperçu exhaustif des projets en cours, un conseil : lisez la note ci-dessous.

Killing Joke FB update (reproduction) :
Well that’s it for a while now. Festival at weekend was last thing in diary for a long time. Thanks for an amazing 24 months and supporting us by buying tickets all over the world not to mention making 2012 one of our best selling and most critically acclaimed albums to date.
We really enjoyed curating our singles album too it was odd to think it started 35 years ago.
So what next?
KJ have been resigned to Universal/Spinefarm for a 3rd studio album which we will start recording around October time but most likely won’t come out till the following September. Might do a little tour of Switzerland at some point too.
Youth’s KJ in Dub triple album will finally see the light very shortly, Just waiting on Jaz’s book to ship and we will put that up for preorder.
Jaz’s book is about to go out and he’ll be touring it as a spoken word thing (announcement soon). After that his Nirvana Symphony looks like seeing the light of day in quite a spectacular way with a live TV broadcast from a prominent venue. He’s also producing Shihad’s new album which is going to be a trip.
And then the film,…….
Well it is done and folk in NZ have actually seen it (no honestly)
It’s actually very good and Shaun has done a great job, but we like you are waiting in them finalising everything before it can be seen by everyone. We have no more news sadly.
With any luck cinema will still exist by the time it’s released.
Youth is working on the new Echo & The Bunnymen album as well as Peter Murphy’s 10th offering. He’s also just completed an album with David Tibet of Current 93 which looks like being released on a new label set up by him and KJ manager David Bianchi.
Geordie has already demoed 9 new KJ tunes as riffs and is buried deep in European studios.
Paul is in US recovering after having to miss Oz/NZ tour and will 100% be back on the drum stool for next album.
Anyhoo, thanks again and more news will appear here as and when it comes in.
