Killing Joke - Follow The Leaders


On this date in 1981, Killing Joke released their fourth single, "Follow The Leaders". It was backed by "Tension". Both tracks appeared on their second album, What's THIS For...!. The single reached the #55 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The London post-punk band disbanded in 1996 but re-formed a few years ago. The original lineup will be touring this year.
