Over the years, the band members have chosen to develop their talents in a variety of ways: triple Grammy winner Jaz Coleman, for instance, has established an international reputation working with some of the world's greatest symphony orchestras, while Martin "Youth" Glover has become one of the U.K.'s most celebrated producers, supervising albums from The Verve and Primal Scream, amongst others, as well as achieving major success as one half of highly-regarded duo The Orb.
Covered by Metallica, Foo Fighters and more, Killing Joke's apocalyptic 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.
Once described by Paul Ferguson as "the sound of the earth vomiting," Killing Joke is now poised to take its music of resistance to a whole new level, both in the studio and on the road.
