Killing Joke have asked for any information about the whereabouts of their lead singer Jaz Coleman who they report has gone missing.
A statement from the rest of the band on their official Facebook page says they are ‘concerned for his welfare’ as they have not heard from him.
They say: “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 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.”
This follows a statement on the Facebook page last week supposedly from Jaz maligning The Cult and The Mission and pulling Killing Joke out of a tour with them after venue sizes were downgraded.
However, today’s statement from the band suggests Killing Joke still intend to play at these shows at the moment. It reads:
“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.ÃÂ 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 and people who have already bought tickets and made travel arrangements.”
The tour is planned for September 2012.
