Killing Joke have announced details of an extensive world tour to mark their 40th anniversary. The veteran post-punk outfit is celebrating the milestone by embarking on the Laugh At Your Peril Tour, which begins in September with a leg of North American shows. Further dates are scheduled in Europe and the UK beginning in mid-October. The itinerary takes in 44 dates all told.

Elsewhere in Killing Joke news, frontman Jaz Coleman is also collaborating with the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra on new versions of classic Killing Joke songs from throughout the band’s career. Pre-orders for Symphonic Killing Joke are ongoing via Killing Joke’s PledgeMusic page in digital, CD, and LP formats. Aside from the Laugh At Your Peril tour, there are also plans for a one-one performance in London featuring Coleman performing with an orchestra. Killing Joke’s last proper studio album came in 2015 with Pylon.
