Editors announce their seventh album EBM (Play It Again Sam), due September 23, 2022. The new album will be the first with new band member Benjamin John Power, aka Blanck Mass, who was announced as a full-time member last month with the album’s first single “Heart Attack.” A second preview is now available in the form of “Karma Climb,” a stomping new single that pairs ghostly atmospherics with stadium-level anthemia, out now accompanied by a dynamic live video.
The six-piece have also announced a 15 date European tour taking place in October, as well as 7 shows in the UK and Ireland in early 2023, which will see them play London’s iconic Troxy, with further dates in Nottingham, Norwich, Manchester, Glasgow, Dublin and Bristol. Known for their compelling live presence, the tour offers Editors the chance to test these new tracks in the live spaces for which they were intended, as Power explains: “There is a strong physicality to this record. EBM started its life with the intention of connecting with people and filling a very physical space. There is also however an emotional physicality running throughout; An urgency and a sense of panic. An unease. Even in its more tender moments, there is a yearning for connection.”
