Killing Joke have released a new promo clip for the song "Corporate Elect". This track from their latest studio album MMXII, released last year through Spinefarm Records, is both the current single plus a taster of the new Singles Collection release, out this week, also via Spinefarm, to celebrate their 35th anniversary. Enjoy the new video below.
The video was conceived, filmed and directed by Mikee Goodman and is only the fourth official clip sanctioned by Killing Joke in the past few years, following in the wake of "In Excelsis", the animated "European Super State" and "In Cythera", clips in which the band have barely appeared.
Says Goodman, former frontman with UK outfit SikTh, one half of Primal Rock Rebellion (along with Iron Maiden guitarist, Adrian Smith), and now recording with new set-up, Outpatients: "This video has been my biggest creative challenge yet. I had never previously met Jaz Coleman, but I was blown away by the powerful and passionate performance he delivered. I did not sleep properly for five weeks. Now I have, I have looked at it again with fresh eyes. And smiled. I was honoured to be asked to make a music video for Killing Joke, and so pleased to hear they liked it..."
