Subject: Killing Joke announce New Website and New Live Album via PledgeMusic

Dear Gatherers,

Not only is our brand new website www.killingjoke.com http://killingjoke.us2.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=e83d474264aa0b2ec163e9c90&id=c7e62a5562&e=ffbbd2cbd4 up and running; with a gig history, discography and tattoos board, but we’d also like to announce a brand new live album being released via PledgeMusic.

‘Down By The River’ will be released in January 2012 via formats including a download version, CD, double vinyl and some very special editions. This new partnership will provide a direct-to-fan offering giving Gatherers the chance to participate in the making and release of the new album.

2010 and 2011 have been two of the most successful years for Killing Joke yet and have seen us release ‘Absolute Dissent’, our most critically well received album to date. In the UK alone it won Album of the Year at The Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards and the Lifetime Achievement recognition at the Classic Rock Awards, presented to them by long term fan Jimmy Page.

Live shows also saw a dramatic upswing seeing us play incredible sets at Sonisphere, The Hammersmith Apollo and of course ‘The Royal Festival Hall’ appearance that is now being released here.

Geordie Walker, our guitarist and founding member, had a vision to record the show and produce the results himself to give the fan base what he describes as “the definitive KJ live album”. Geordie, long term collaborator ‘Clive Goddard’, and KJ keys player Rezza Udin, disappeared into the wilds of Henley Upon Thames and the wonderful Doghouse Studios and created this amazing piece of work.

As part of the release we are also making available a range of unique and rare items via PledgeMusic, such as Geordie’s customised Warwick guitar, t-shirts, album artwork screen prints, plus much, much more…

For existing band merchandise, you can also visit http://killingjoke.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=e83d474264aa0b2ec163e9c90&id=9527b99670&e=ffbbd2cbd4.

We’ll be adding more sections, with more ways for you to interact with the band, and each other, to www.killingjoke.com http://killingjoke.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=e83d474264aa0b2ec163e9c90&id=f9496866ab&e=ffbbd2cbd4 as the months progress… so keep checking back for the latest band news.

Oh, and of course there’s our 2012 Tour which tickets are still available for. Just click your date, and you’ll be taken to a ticket buying page. We’ll see you all next March. Until then.

Jaz, Geordie, Youth and Paul.
