NEW VIDEO FOR ‘CORPORATE ELECT’ SINGLE RELEASED IN SUPPORT OF ‘THE SINGLES COLLECTION 1979 -2012’, OUT THIS WEEK..
KILLING JOKE celebrate their 35th Anniversary in style with the release of a new promo clip for ‘Corporate Elect’.
This track – from latest studio album, ‘MMXII’, released last year through Spinefarm Records – is both the current single plus a taster of the new ‘Singles Collection’ release, out this week, also via Spinefarm.
The video, conceived, filmed & directed by Mikee Goodman, is only the fourth official clip sanctioned by KJ in the past few years, following in the wake of ‘In Excelsis’, the animated ‘European Super State’ & ‘In Cythera’, clips in which the band have barely appeared.
Says Goodman, former frontman with UK outfit SikTh, one half of Primal Rock Rebellion (along with Iron Maiden guitarist, Adrian Smith), and now recording with new set-up, Outpatients:-
“This video has been my biggest creative challenge yet. I had never previously met Jaz Coleman, but I was blown away by the powerful and passionate performance he delivered.
“I did not sleep properly for five weeks. Now I have, I have looked at it again with fresh eyes. And smiled.
“I was honoured to be asked to make a music video for Killing Joke, and so pleased to hear they liked it…”
