Killing Joke frontman missing
Post-punk group Killing Joke have appealed for help in finding missing lead singer Jaz Coleman, NME reports.
The band released their 15th studio album 2012 earlier this year and are due to tour with The Cult and The Mission, but a statement posted on their Facebook page purportedly written by Coleman cast doubt on their tour plans.
In response, the band posted a note in apology and sought information for Coleman's whereabouts.
"A statement was posted on Facebook, reputedly by our singer, maligning both The Cult and The Mission and pulling us out of the shows," they wrote. "He is now AWOL and has not contacted any of his band mates. 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 continued: "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 [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," the posting concludes. "Meanwhile we are doing everything we can to make this tour happen and locate our missing singer."
