British post-punk band Killing Joke celebrates their 35th anniversary this year with a new compilation, 'The Singles Collection 1979 -2012', released this week via Spinefarm.

Today they share with us a new video for “Corporate Elect”. Director Mikee Goodman says, “This video has been my biggest creative challenge yet. I had never previously met Jaz Coleman, but I was blown away by the powerful and passionate performance he delivered. I did not sleep properly for five weeks. Now I have, I have looked at it again with fresh eyes. And smiled.”


Watch for an album of new material from Killing Joke in 2014.
