Killing Joke – Pylon (Released 23rd October)

£22.99 – x 2 LP

Killing Joke have confirmed the release date for their 16th studio album ‘Pylon’ will be October 23, simultaneously releasing a video for ‘I Am The Virus’.

The Londoners confirmed the album launch date via their social media, saying on Facebook:

“It’s simple… stark brutal industrial suicide… this is the third in a triptych of albums, Absolute Dissent, MMXII and now PYLON… heavy and uncompromising, bleak dystopian lyrics, as well as some visionary celebration… lots of black pain, emotion.”

“Thank you for the last 36 years,” they added, “but we’re not done with you yet. Be seeing you.”

‘Pylon’ was produced by Tom Dalgety, whose recent credits also include Royal Blood’s hit self-titled album. It will be released on Spinefarm Records, and is available to pre-order in various standard and deluxe formats now.

The original line-up, which reformed in 2008, is still going strong. Killing Joke will begin a tour in support of the album in October, starting with a series of UK dates.
