SoundBytes: Killing Joke, Father John Misty, August Burns Red and more



-- "Due to some health issues for one of the band," influential Goth rockers Killing Joke are canceling their 2016 North American tour, which was to include a stop at the Orpheum on Jan. 15. "This has come as a shock to us all, please give us the time to work this out and we hope to return to touring as soon as possible," the band wrote on Facebook. In the meantime, their planned openers, The Soft Moon, will continue with the show, with Empire Cinema and Sleeping Pills. Tickets are $10-$13. Click here.

-- You can bet a ton of fans will drive from Tampa to Orlando for a concert by Father John Misty. (Hey, if it's good enough for Aziz Ansari, it's good enough for us.) The erstwhile Josh Tillman will perform at the Beacham on April 30. Tickets are $25-$38 and they go on sale at noon Jan. 15, and we're betting they'll sell quickly. Click here.

-- Metalcore acts August Burns Red and Between the Buried and Me are teaming up for a tour that'll hit Jannus Live on March 8. The Faceless and Good Tiger will open. Tickts are $22 and up. Click here.

-- Guns N' Roses are playing Coachella, and we'll find out soon enough if their reunion tour will bring them to Florida. But we do know former Gunner Gilby Clarke is coming to the State Theatre. The guitarist will hit the State Theatre on Feb. 25. Tickets are $15. Click here.

-- Comic Anjelah Johnson is bringing her popular MADtv character Bon Qui Qui to life on her new Gold Plated Dreams Tour, during which she'll perform in character and also perform viral rap singles like I'ma Cut You and No Boyfren.
