Editors are back! and the new 4th album 'The Weight of Your Love' is out on the 1st of July. You can watch the new video for 'Ton of Love' ^^^
I remember first hearing Editors on the radio back in 2005 and being completely blown away by them. i never got round to hearing any of the albums though and by the time they'd done album 3 i'd seen them as nothing more than Joy Division rip offs. Now that they're back its time i think i gave them a proper listen. with the B-Town scene being as vibrant as it is, this is a good time for Editors to make a comeback.
Compared with the electronic style of the last record this is more of a straight out rock song, complete with a great opening riff and strummed acoustic guitars. If anything its the most american they've ever sounded, even being slightly Springsteen-ian (I made that word up). The vocals in particular have a rough american sound and lyically its quite simple, the word 'Desire' is repeated a lot. my favorite line from the song is "I don’t trust the government, I don’t trust myself, What is a boy gonna do?"
so yeah straight forward no nonsense slightly american rock n roll.
