Seminal punk band, Killing Joke, is set to release The Singles Collection 1972-2012 with their 35th anniversary. In 2013, the band will be releasing a new studio album and the world tour in support of the singles album will kick off Europe. The new studio album is planned to be due out in late 2013 and will include the original line-up of Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth and Big Paul. The Singles Collection 1979-2012 can be purchased in three formats: as a digital download, a limited edition 3 CD set and a super deluxe edition.
The super deluxe edition will contain a “cigar box” with matte print retrospective artwork. The CDs includes 33 singles from the Killing Joke’s history as a band and unreleased studio tracks. It will also have a 32-page photo book of the band members and band commentary. This edition also features poster by Killing Joke artist, Mike Coles, printed on 250gsm silk art as well as an aluminum screw-top branded cigar tube with original wrappers of cigars smoked by Jaz Coleman and Paul Raven while recording the album, Hosannas From The Basements.
