Stream KILLING JOKE's 'The Singles Collection' below!
Out this week ‘The Singles Collection 1979 – 2012’, captures the ever-evolving KJ story with a series of dark, apocalyptic songs; over the years, the band – now back to their original line-up – have successfully combined disco and funk and a shamanic wisdom with the dark side of the punk fall-out, and their music is always challenging and always driven by its own special character & chemistry.
Simply, the influence of Killing Joke has been enormous, with an unlikely roll-call of musicians taking their cues from the KJ catalogue – from Nirvana to most modern American metal to many DJs and dance music mavericks… few, however, have coming close to matching the band’s innate power and prophetic message.
Killing Joke 'The Singles Collection 1979 – 2012' is initially being released as a Limited Edition 3 CD set (33 career-spanning singles plus a third disc of rarities, including previously unreleased studio tracks), plus a Super Deluxe Cigar-Boxed Edition.
