Killing Joke celebrate their 35th anniversary with the release of a career spanning singles collection on April 15th. The Singles Collection 1979 - 2012 includes 33 singles and b-sides, along with previously unreleased studio tracks. The collection will be available as a digital download, limited edition CD, and a Super Deluxe Edition/boxset. The limited edition CD version comes as a 3 disc set, but once the initial pressings are gone the collection will be available as a 2 CD set (fans interested in the limited edition version are encouraged to pre-order now). Meanwhile, the Super Deluxe boxset version includes all of the music on the limited edition CD, but comes in a hand numbered cigar box and features extra nifty things like a poster, 32 page book, plus an aluminium screw top branded cigar tube containing original wrappers of cigars smoked by Jaz Coleman and Paul Raven during the recording of ‘Hosannas From The Basements Of Hell!  Wow! A listing of the full contents of the box are posted below.
