Our Killing Joke Keyboard player, Reza, is teaming up with original Nirvana drummer Chad Channing for the next two nights to perform 2 shows together!

Reza will be debuting his new project, Black Volition. The line-up includes Reza, Will Crewdson (Rachel Stamp / Adam Ant), Spike Smith (Morrissey, The Damned), Roi Robertson (Mechanical Cabaret) and Gaz (Morrissey).

Chad Channing will be performing with his new band, Before Cars.

The shows are: Thursday 17th July – The Garage, London and Friday 18th July – Surya, London.

Black Volition released their first single, RIVERS, and music video this week, which you can view HERE.

In a statement put out by Pink Floyd this week, it’s confirmed that our very own Youth will be working alongside David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, and recording engineer Andy Jackson on Floyd’s new record The Endless River. The album is set for release in October 2014.

The band added, “It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions which feature David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright.”

Recently Youth produced the top-40 Echo & The Bunnymen record METEORITES, while many will already know his work with the likes of The Verve, U2, and Embrace.

On August 14th we will be performing at the Picturedrome in Holmfirth. It would of course be wonderful if you could join us. You can buy a ticket from HERE, or by calling: 0844 478 0898.

Youth has created a new Killing Joke release entitled Killing Joke: In Dub. He has written…

“I first discovered Dub in 1976, along with many other kinds of music it became the soundtrack to my late teenage years and consistent through the rest of my life. We were surrounded by Dub in Ladbroke Grove in the late 1970’s…. This is the first time a collection of Killing Joke’s Dub mixes has been released as an album, spread over 3CD’s (as well as a 40 minute bonus DJ Mix) over four hours of Dub annihilation…it has been an epic voyage. Compiling the best of the legacy and distilling all new Dub plates into a definitive collection was never going to be easy. This album has taken over a year to lovingly put together and of all of the many productions and mixes I have been fortunate enough to have been involved with, this one, I’m sure, will be one of those that tells the story best and the one that makes me feel extremely proud to be a part of the phenomena that is Killing Joke.”

Killing Joke: In Dub is available as digital download, 3CD set and as a special 3LP/1CD set, which includes a bonus 40min DJ Set featuring tracks from the album. Alongside these album formats, there are some exclusive merch items and bundles to be had.

The album will be released digitally to all pledgers around 2 weeks after launch and all physical items will be shipped out asap thereafter.

Since my teens,  dub plate sonic assaults became the soundtrack to my life. The de constructed mash up of familiar sounds, saturated and imploded in reverb and oceans of analogue delay ..creating .multiple  3D , holographic universes that gives your imagination cathedral sized wings to fly with. Dub has got me through some of the best and toughest times . This language of dub still speaks louder to me than ever. Over two years in the making, We have distilled the best of the pioneering  vintage dub mixes and spent months buried in various sound lab’s and  south london studios creating new dub plates that rumble the earth with skull crunching bass annihilation,  razor lighting strike guitars that collide with Jaz’s primal howl from the abyss, anchored by Big Paul’s tribal drums that holographically pummel you into submission . Over 3 hours of dub pandemonium …. Peace through noise

Love Youth
