Killing Joke announces 40th anniversary box sets, ‘Laugh At Your Peril’ world tour

Post-punk legends Killing Joke today announced plans to celebrate their 40th anniversary this year with a pair of limited-edition career-spanning box sets and a world tour that will open in the U.S. this September before hitting South America, Europe and the U.K.

The band is now taking pre-orders on the Fortieth Anniversary Ultimate Collection box sets: a set of 16 double CDs, including expanded editions of each of the band’s 15 albums, plus a collection of further bonus material, priced at $232; and a vinyl edition that includes 16 colored double LPs packaged in a flight case with a set of headphones and a signed lyric book, priced at $852.

Check out the full tracklistings for the CD box set and the vinyl flight case.

The band says on its Facebook page:

“Forty years ago this summer Jaz met Big Paul, one year later we released our first EP. Our fortieth anniversary celebrations will therefore be stretched over 2 years and begins with a world tour, parties and talks by Youth and Jaz… a new magnum opus.”
