Killing Joke Frontman Jaz Coleman Missing

Written by Marc Zanotti on August 1, 2012

Killing Joke frontman Jaz Coleman has disappeared after allegedly ‘maligning’ fellow bands The Mission and The Cult, with whom Killing Joke are due to tour with this September. According to an official statement posted on Killing Joke’s Facebook page, Coleman, or someone posing as Coleman, posted slanderous remarks about both The Cult and The Mission; there has been no contact from Coleman since the incident occurred.

The posted comments came as a surprise as all members of Killing Joke had agreed to the upcoming tour, which is meant to begin with a show in Manchester. Despite the band’s attempts to locate Coleman, so far there is no news on his whereabouts or his condition.

Killing Joke recently released their 15th studio record MMXII (2012) in April.

Read: Killing Joke Official Statement

A statement was posted on Facebook, reputedly by our singer, maligning both The Cult and The Mission and pulling us out of the shows.
He is now AWOL and has not contacted any of his bandmates.

We are deeply embarrassed by this and offer our sincere apologies to all involved.

We are all concerned about our missing singer’s welfare.

Killing Joke made a collective decision to play with The Cult and The Mission in September.

It was agreed by all of the band that we would do these shows. Indeed, we thought that they were something to look forward to, even though they were downsized.

We would still like to honour our commitment to this tour, the other bands, and all the Gatherers and people who have already bought tickets and made travel arrangements.

If this proves not possible, Killing Joke will make alternative arrangements to compensate for the trouble caused.

Meanwhile we are doing everything we can to make this tour happen and locate our missing singer.
