on April 01, 2018, 2:07pm

This year marks Killing Joke’s 40th anniversary, and the veteran post-punk outfit is celebrating the milestone by embarking on an extensive world tour. The “Laugh At Your Peril Tour” begins in September with a leg of North American shows. Further dates are scheduled in Europe and the UK beginning in mid-October. See the full itinerary below (via Post-Punk).

Killing Joke frontman Jaz Coleman is also collaborating with the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra on new versions of classic Killing Joke songs from throughout the band’s career. Pre-orders for Symphonic Killing Joke are ongoing via Killing Joke’s PledgeMusic page in digital, CD, and LP formats. There are also plans for a one-one performance in London featuring Coleman performing with an orchestra.

Killing Joke’s last proper studio album came in 2015 with Pylon.
