KILLING JOKE Interviewed By 'Bay Area Rocks' (Video)

Bassy Stacy of conducted an interview with Jaz Coleman and Paul Ferguson of U.K. post-punk industrial icons KILLING JOKE on December 17, 2010 at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, California. You can now watch the chat below.

KILLING JOKE's latest studio offering, "Absolute Dissent", was released on November 16 via Spinefarm Records. The CD is the band's 13th full-length and finds the original lineup of Jaz Coleman (vocals), Geordie (guitar), Youth (bass) and Paul Ferguson (drums) sharing studio space for the first time in 27 years. The 12-track recording was engineered and mixed by Clive Goddard, and produced by the band.

"Absolute Dissent" was released on various formats including CD, two-colored vinyl and a two-CD deluxe edition entitled "Absolute Respect" featuring a bonus disc with KILLING JOKE songs covered by METALLICA, AMEN, HELMET, ECONOLINE CRUSH, DEAD BY APRIL, THE MAD CAPSULE MARKETS, NOUVELLE VAGUE, FEAR FACTORY, FOO FIGHTERS and KOTITEOLLISUUS.

Covered by METALLICA, FOO FIGHTERS and so many others, KILLING JOKE's apocalyptic post-punk/industrial vision continues to draw praise from such high-profile supporters as Jimmy Page and Billy Corgan, and the band's considerable musical legacy can be heard in the works of NIRVANA, MINISTRY, NINE INCH NAILS and the like — artists whose rise to fame never saw them cutting ties with the underground/alternative scene.
