KILLING JOKE stream new songs on YouTube from the forthcoming album ‘MMXII’ (2012)
ON MARCH 27, Killing Joke are streaming 30 seconds of each song from their new album, ‘MMXII‘ (2012) on YouTube.
The 30 second snippets of the 10 songs will give fans and the general public a chance to salivate at the genius of the forthcoming tour- de- force.
‘MMXII‘ (2012), featuring the single ‘In Cythera‘, is released April 2nd on Spinefarm Records / Universal.
With their original line-up of Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth & Big Paul back together again, ‘2012’ is a dense and multi-layered work. Killing Joke have never sounded so intense. The songs are great washes of sound – a death disco with huge slabs of guitar that soundtracks these dangerous times.
‘2012’ is an end-of-time album that somehow finds moments of optimism in the downward swirl of the planet.
Finding hope in the apocalypse, this album could just be their masterpiece.
