Killing Joke Frontman Jaz Coleman Resurfaces

Jaz Coleman

After disappearing in the wake of a mysterious Facebook post two weeks ago, Killing Joke frontman Jaz Coleman has resurfaced, unscathed and apparently unaware of the furore surrounding his actions. Coleman reappeared from the Western Sahara yesterday (August 12), where he had been hiding out for the past month while working on two different projects. The post, which has since been removed, alleged that the band were cancelling a UK tour with The Cult and The Mission but is now thought to have been the work of a fan.

Quoth Coleman of his disappearance, “I’ve been finishing my book and writing the score for my new project, The Nirvana Symphonic. What’s all the fuss about then?” He went on to say that The Nirvana Symphonic may become a TV show and concert in Seattle in 2013, while the book may be available as early as next week.

Coleman’s bandmates in Killing Joke put out a press release following the incidents of two weeks ago, describing the singer as “AWOL” and expressing their concern for his welfare. The band also stated that they would like to “honour [their] commitment” to the tour with The Cult and The Mission, though it is not yet clear whether or not it will go ahead now that Coleman has reappeared.
