Killing Joke announce North American tour details Get Tickets

Group will begin the gig-run in New York on December 3

Killing Joke – Love Like Blood. Aligning love and sex with blood is a standard goth trope, but Jaz Coleman's lyrics always cut deeper than the usual 'doomed romance' cliches. On this 1986 single, one of the few times KJ ever troubled 'Top Of The Pops', he uses martial imagery to create a sense of apocalyptic struggle. Most gothic moment: "Strength and beauty destined to decay." Pic: PA Photos
