KILLING JOKE have announced a new EP featuring their first new music in seven years.
The Lord Of Chaos EP features two brand new tracks - 'Lord Of Chaos' and 'Total' - plus two more tracks - 'Big Buzz (Motorcade Mix)' and 'Delete In Dub (Youth’s Disco 45 Dystopian Dub)' - reworked from the band's last studio album, 2015's Pylon.
“I’ve never known anything like the time we are living in now," says Jaz Coleman. "Not since the Cuban Missile crisis but now in comparison we have multiple flash points. 'Lord Of Chaos' is about complex systems failure, when technology overloads and A.I. misreads the enemies intentions."
The two new tracks give the listener an idea of what to expect from the band’s next studio album, which they're currently working on in Prague, while the older tracks, remixed by Dalgety and Nick Evans, and Youth respectively, the bassist having a longstanding reputation as a dubmaster.
