VOIVOD and Roadburn are equally thrilled to announce that seminal post-punk pioneers KILLING JOKE will perform at Roadburn 2012 on Thursday, April 12 as part of the newly expanded Au-del du Rel event.
KILLING JOKE was at the top of VOIVOD's wish list as soon as they accepted the curator invitation. Unfortunately, Jaz Coleman (vocals, keyboards and arrangements), Geordie Walker (guitar), Youth (bass) and Paul Ferguson (drums) could not make it to Tilburg on Friday, April 13 due to prior commitments. However, in the spirit of Roadburn and true to the Outer Limits theme, it was quickly decided to expand Au-del du Rel and turn VOIVOD's dream of sharing a stage with KILLING JOKE into reality.
Please note that VOIVOD's second show originally scheduled for Saturday, April 14 has been moved to Thursday, April 12 as part of the specially extended Au-del du Rel.
