Killing Joke frontman and all-around spokesman of the apocalypse Jaz Coleman is recovering in hospital after nearly dying in a fishing accident.

The legendary singer fell backward from his boat and into the sea during a fishing trip and at one point was given a 50/50 chance of survival.

Fortunately, he is now on the mend and well-wishers can leave messages on his Facebook page.

Coleman, as usual, has had several creative irons in the fire recently. Coleman, Geordie Walker, and Peter Hook released an EP of the recently unearthed K÷93 (CADIZ Music) in March.

Rumours have been circulating that Coleman had disappeared in recent months, nothing unprecedented as Coleman famously disappeared in 1982 with occult visions of the impending apocalypse, leading him to hole up in Iceland for months, and twenty years later a canceled 2012 tour with The Cult, finding him vanished once more, later being found in the Western Sahara desert.

Wherever and whatever infirmary Jaz is currently convalescing, here is hoping his recovery is swift and complete.
