Killing Joke frontman Jaz Coleman has allegedly gone missing after a mysterious announcement was posted online that the group was cancelling their U.K. tour.
A statement last week said the band were pulling out of a triple-headed tour with fellow ’80s icons The Cult and The Mission. It was first thought to have been posted by Coleman, but is now alleged to have been the work of a fan.
The Facebook statement originally said: “It gives me great pleasure to announce the cancellation of the upcoming gigs with The Cult and The Mission.”
But fellow Killing Joke members Geordie Walker, Martin “Youth” Glover and Paul Ferguson have since taken to Facebook to say that they haven't heard from Coleman since the previous “announcement” was made. “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: “we are doing everything we can to make this tour happen and locate our missing singer.”
The original lineup of Killing Joke released its latest album, MMXII in April.
