Yes indeedy — post-punk industrial act Killing Joke will be returning to North America this winter for a much-anticipated run of live shows. My pal Alex Smith probably already has tickets.
The trek kicks off in New York City — as every tour should — on December 3 and wraps in Los Angeles on December 18. Of course, the band will be touring in support of their forthcoming LP, Absolute Dissent, which Alex tells me is “utterly magnificent.” He’d know. That disc drops November 16.
After the jump, you can see all of those tour dates as well as listen to Absolute Dissent in its entirety. No shit, folks! Listen to music before you buy it. I am a firm believer in paying for music you like, and not illegally downloading it. I am also a firm believer in not paying for music you don’t like. This is a way to listen to the Killing Joke disc before it hits stores.
