Editors band news

Earlier this week, Editors unveiled "Magazine," from forthcoming album Violence - the band’s first single in three years. 

Frontman Tom Smith says it is "a pointed finger aimed at those in power...some corrupt politician or businessman...a character, and a tongue in cheek poke at the empty posturing and playing to the masses of the power hungry." 

Violence is the sixth album from Editors, and follows 2015’s acclaimed top 5 UK charter In Dream. It is produced by Leo Abrahams (Wild Beasts, Florence & The Machine, Frightened Rabbit) and Editors with additional production from Benjamin John Power and mixed by Cenzo Townshend, except "Hallelujah (So Low)," mixed by Alan Moulder.

The "Magazine" video was shot in Amsterdam by photographer, director and long term Editors collaborator Rahi Rezvani. A US tour is slated for spring. Tickets on sale now.
