KILLING JOKE RELEASE NEW SINGLE ŒEUROPEAN SUPER STATE¹ ON SEPTEMBER 20TH 2010 VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS UKŠ     KILLING JOKE will release a new single on September 20th via Spinefarm Records UK; titled ŒEuropean Super State¹, this is the second single to be issued from this hugely influential UK outfit¹s forthcoming studio album, ŒAbsolute Dissent¹, now confirmed for a September 27th release, also on Spinefarm Records UK.  ŒEuropean Super State¹ ­ the follow-up to ŒIn Excelsis¹, released back in July ­ features the original Killing Joke line-up (the first time these musicians have worked together in almost 30 years!), and will be available on CD and download complete with previously unreleased studio recordings & remixes.    With a reputation forged in fire, brimstone and magic, Killing Joke have long been one of rock¹s most iconic outfits. 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 world¹s greatest symphony orchestras, whilst Martin ŒYouth¹ Glover has become one of the UK¹s 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.    Covered by Metallica, Foo Fighters and more, Killing Joke¹s apocalyptic vision continues to draw praise from such high-profile supporters as Jimmy Page and Billy Corgan, and the band¹s 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.   Once described by drummer Paul Ferguson as Œthe sound of the earth vomiting¹, Killing Joke are now poised to take their music of resistance to a whole new level, both in the studio and on the road.   October UK Tour Dates:  15th ­ Picture House, Edinburgh 16th ­ Hammersmith Apollo, London
