Killing Joke - Singer Missing


A post on the official Killing Joke Facebook page states that the group's singer Jaz Coleman is missing after having some words to say about The Cult and The Mission. The three bands were scheduled to play together on tour later in the year, but Killing Joke have since been kicked off the tour.

The official statement reads:

A statement was posted on Facebook, reputedly by our singer, maligning both The Cult and The Mission and pulling us out of the shows.
He is now AWOL and has not contacted any of his band mates.

We are deeply embarrassed by this and offer our sincere apologies to all involved.

We are all concerned about our missing singer's welfare.

Killing Joke made a collective decision to play with The Cult and The Mission in September.

It was agreed by all of the band that we would do these shows. Indeed, we thought that they were something to look forward to, even though they were downsized.

We would still like to honour our commitment to this tour, the other bands, and all the Gatherers and people who have already bought tickets and made travel arrangements.

If this proves not possible, Killing Joke will make alternative arrangements to compensate for the trouble caused.

Meanwhile we are doing everything we can to make this tour happen and locate our missing singer.

Oh absolutely! Even though I wasn't a fan of their latest stuff when they played at Roadburn... I did admire his crazy look and attitude.

"Not only that, but KJ frontman Jaz Coleman has blasted touring partners The Cult in a furious Facebook tirade, singling out the punk quartet for extorting fans, lacking all integrity and claiming to be from LA. The Cult are in fact from Bradford, so that last point seems fair.

Initially billed as an arena tour, the outing has since been downgraded to smaller-capacity academies in Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham and London. So far, so not very good.

Or so thinks Jaz Coleman, who last week addressed this Facebook note (since deleted) to his 'Gatherers': "It gives me great pleasure to announce the cancellation of the upcoming gigs with The Cult and The Mission. Frankly, playing at a gig with The Cult never appealed to me in the first place. The only reason we allowed ourselves to be talked into it was to blow both bands off the stage and to steal their respective audiences".

The statement continues: "As the concert has been downgraded to a venue that we have recently headlined (and sold out) it doesn't make sense. In addition to this Gatherers would only get to listen to a one hour set. Then there would be a problem with the dressing room and witnessing The Cult charge the fans $200 per head for a meet and greet".

And (almost) finally: "Lastly, all their songs suck! They clearly have no integrity (they refer to their hometown as LA)."
