KILLING JOKE :: “2012” am 30. März via Spinefarm Records

Mit ihrem Original-Line-Up – bestehend aus Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth und Big Paul – das sich im Jahr 2008 wieder zusammengefunden hatte, konnte die Band zum Voodoo-Zauber der alten Tage zurückfinden.
Jaz Coleman dazu: “I can’t see the point contemplating extreme life extinction – it’s good for nothing. It’s nihilism in the absolute even considering it. It’s in many different calendars – the great unveiling, the sky and the earth coming together. It’s a significant date. In the autumn, there is a major planetary alignment, and on that day I’m doing this rock festival, ‘A Party At The End of The Earth’, which is going to be in New Zealand. Everything is speeding up. It’s not just our minds shrinking. We are heading towards the Eschaton and no-one really knows what’s going to happen.”

“2012” reflektiert sind düsteren Visionen des exzentrischen Sängers, aber gleichzeitig lässt die Band auch ausreichend Platz für positive Ausblicke: “All the remote viewers I know, myself included, cannot penetrate beyond. This year is about getting our collective dreams in order, restoring the biosphere, the idea of well-being as opposed to economic growth, the idea of partnership and co-creation with fellow human beings, moving away from national boundaries and more towards what Schiller and Beethoven were saying in some of their work.”
