Jaz Coleman disappears
Killing Joke front man MIA after posting Facebook rant
As previously reported, Killing Joke front man Jaz Coleman recently posted a Facebook status declaring the band had pulled out of their upcoming tour with The Cult and The Mission along with not being overly kind about them.
Apparently, after posting that status, Coleman then disappeared leading to the band issuing the following 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".
They added: "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 [Killing Joke fans] 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".
