Editors Are On A Dark Edge For New Album An End Has A Start
By: Spacelab Research Staff Editors are ready to release their sophmore effort An End Has A Start in July. It's the follow up to their debut The Back Room, the album that broke the band big internationally after spending time in the Birmingham scene.
The band used the legendary Jacknife Lee to record the album at Grouse Lodge studio in Ireland. Lee was also the man behind the board for the Editors first release The Back Room and has also worked with Bloc Party and their most recent album.
The band has walked farther down the path of darkness on An End Has A Start, giving the music an icy edge.
“There is a lot of death on the record, that sounds pretty morbid but it’s the truth. Death has touched me and my friends in the last year in several ways. Realizing everything comes to an end is important and I think we’ve done our best to make it something glorious and uplifting as well as scary,” said singer Tom Smith.
They'll release Smokers Outside the Hospital Door as a single on June 18th in the UK in anticipation of the July release of the new album. They've already started playing shows and will continue to tour throughout the Summer, playing European festivals and a stop ay Summer Sonic in Japan.
The band recently previewed some of the new material in London at Roundhouse, mixing old songs with new ones.
An End Has A Start Track List will be released in the U.S. on July 17th on Epic / Fader Records.
