Killing Joke frontman Jaz Coleman has resurfaced after he was declared missing over two weeks ago.

The veteran post-punkers, who released their 15th studio album '2012' earlier this year, posted a statement on July 31 on their official Facebook page saying that they were "concerned for Coleman's welfare" as they had not heard from him.

However, Coleman has now resurfaced, revealing that he has been living a nomadic existence in the Western Sahara in Africa. He says he was surprised that "any fuss" was made over his disappearance.

In a statement posted on his own Facebook page, Coleman said: "I've been finishing my book and writing the score for my new project (The Nirvana Symphonic), what’s all the fuss about then?"

Coleman's new project involves entails a solo album, book and TV score, with the solo album reportedly set to be released next week.

The singer also spoke about the post on their Facebook page, which purported to be from Coleman, suggested that they were pulling out of a tour with The Cult and The Mission.

He has denied making the post, but did also say that he now felt his band are unable to undertake the tour in the light of the fake post.

He said of this: "Looks like this has caused a right ding dong and feel it's impossible to continue this tour under the circumstances."

Killing Joke were due to tour with The Cult and The Mission in September of this year.
