Last year, UK doom-rock legends Killing Joke reassembled their original band lineup for the first time since 1982 to play two sold-out shows at the London Forum... and next month they're presenting the complete recordings of both concerts in a pair of limited-edition CD sets. Click on through to find out what sinister delights are waiting inside!
The legendary proto-industrial band, led by frontman Jaz Coleman with Geordie Walker on guitar, were reunited with fellow founding members Paul Ferguson (on drums) and bassist Martin “Youth” Glover to perform the band's classic early albums Killing Joke and What's THIS For...! in their entirety for the first time onstage, as well as many other rarities and fan favorites like “Wardance” and “Eighties”... even a brand new track, “Timewave.”
The Gathering 2008 Vols. 1 & 2 are set for release on May 18th through the band's own label Killing Joke Records. The two volumes document both complete London performances in double-CD packages – each with a 24-page booklet full of photos and liner notes.
The discs will be limited to a run of 1500 copies each, and preorders are already underway at KillingJoke.com, so jump on this one quick!
