Limited Edition Orange Vinyl Double LP!
Featuring 4th Side EBM Etching!
EBM is the first new music from Editors since 2019 and signals a new era from one of the UK's most intriguing and enduring musical success stories. Having previously collaborated with Editors, bringing additional production to their sixth album, Violence, Ivor Novello winning composer and producer Benjamin John Power, aka Blanck Mass, joins as a full time member and ushers in another bold chapter for a band that never stood still creatively over the course of their 17 year career.
All six of the band's studio albums have charted in the UK top 10, with two scoring number 1's, and their debut, The Back Room, was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize. Their 2020 tour saw them play their biggest UK headline show to date at OVO Arena Wembley, attesting to their ever-growing audience at home and abroad.
EBM should appeal to both longtime fans of the group's epic post-punk sound and anyone who perked up with the robust electronic dynamism that marked Blanck Mass Sessions. Without losing any of their distinctive, cinematically austere style, Editors have embraced a clubby, dare you say, fun exuberance. These are tsunami-level productions marked by shimmering waves of synthy distortion, doomy bass grooves, and as always, singer Tom Smith's Teutonic baritone croon. Some cuts...have that twangy guitar and whip-cracking Krautrock beat of classic Depeche Mode. Others...are surprisingly cheeky, sounding something like a '90s rave DJ'd by a Mario Brothers video game. Much of this leads to the mid-album 'Silence,' a Homeric ballad in which Smith soars through the cosmos on a delicate rainbow of synth and chimes before crashing to the earth in a meteor shower of over-driven electric guitar squelch and digital distortion. It's a bold, deeply emotive moment, evoking the heartfelt style of Peter Gabriel.
