Killing Joke’s Youth Producing New Spiritualized LP

Jason Pierce is happy to go for years and years without releasing anything new, so any news we get of a new Spiritualized album is always an awesome surprise. And now we’re getting some. Apparently, Pierce and his accomplices are working on the follow-up to 2012’s great Sweet Heart Sweet Light right now. They’re recording in London, and Youth, frontman for the roiling tribal postpunk institution Killing Joke, is producing. They’ll also do some recording in Spain. Killing Joke made the announcement on their Facebook page, and we haven’t seen it confirmed anywhere yet, but we’ll take it. And the idea of a Youth-produced Spiritualized album is intriguing; perhaps it’ll concentrate on the band’s noisier side.
