Killing Joke have announced they’ll be releasing a new album on 23 October. Pylon is the band’s 16th studio album and will be released via Spinefarm Records/Caroline Australia.
I Am The Virus is the first single from Pylon, which you can listen to below.
As for the album’s title, says Youth, “It’s simple… Stark brutal industrial suicide… This is the third in a triptych of albums, Absolute Dissent, MMXII and now Pylon… heavy and uncompromising, bleak dystopian lyrics, as well as some visionary celebration… lots of black pain emotion. To be honest, we remain genre blind so our music will always cover a vast spectrum of influences, from disco right through to heavy metal and beyond…”
Pylon will be available as CD album, CD Deluxe and Vinyl (Black Vinyl). The CD album consists of 10 tracks, CD Deluxe is a 2 disc with 5 brand new studio recordings and Vinyl is an 11 track album, 2 Disc, 180 gram black vinyl, Gatefold Sleeve.
