Coleman is a founding member of the band, which began in 1978 in London.

In the statement the band said that the decision to play with The Cult and The Mission was a "collective decision" and "we thought that they were something to look forward to, even though they were downsized."

The band are planning to honour their touring commitments but, "If this proves not possible, Killing Joke will make alternative arrangements to compensate for the trouble caused. Meanwhile we are doing everything we can to make this tour happen and locate our missing singer."
