Killing Joke mark their 40th anniversary with the release of a limited edition career spanning boxset. The massive set will be released on CD and vinyl and includes Killing Joke's 15 studio albums, along with extra content including 12" mixes, live sessions, alternate takes, and previously unreleased tracks. It should be noted that with respect to Brighter Than A Thousand Suns, the boxset includes the 2007 edition (restored mixes version), not the original 1986 release.

The packaging for both of these sets are top notch: The CD edition comes as 16 double CDs packaged in mini-gatefold packs with printed inners. The vinyl edition takes it to a whole new incredible level - the 16 colored double LPs are housed in a flight case with art prints, posters, postcards, flyers, a pair of headphones (!!!), and a certificate of authenticity. The sets will be released on September 21st and are available to pre-order on CD, and LP. View the tracklisting below.

Killing Joke also announced a world tour in celebration of their 40th anniversary. The Laugh At Your Peril Tour includes a handful of North American dates which are available to view below. Killing Joke plan on celebrating their anniversary over two years (they met in 1978; their first EP was released in 1979), so it's possible more tour dates will be added over the next year.
