Editors today unveil their new single ‘Magazine’, taken from forthcoming album ‘Violence’.

A dizzyingly bright, yet barbed opening salvo, ‘Magazine’ marks an intriguing stylistic shift for Editors. The single, the band’s first in three years, is an anthemic pop song that savagely attacks the empty gestures and posturing of those in power. Built around a rousing chorus, swelling keys and crunching, industrial chords, ‘Magazine’ is a muscular, dynamic call-to-arms. Sure to whet the appetite for ‘Violence’ and strike an emotional chord with their legions of fans, ‘Magazine’ demonstrates an ambition from Editors that their latest work is destined for the biggest stages this summer.

Talking about ‘Magazine’, Editors frontman Tom Smith says ‘‘Magazine 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 ‘In Dream’. It is produced by Leo Abrahams (Wild Beasts, Florence & The Machine, Frightened Rabbit) and Editors with additional production from Benjamin John Power (Blanck Mass, Fuck Buttons) and mixed by Cenzo Townshend, except ‘Hallelujah (So Low)’ mixed by Alan Moulder.

The ‘Magazine’ video was shot in Amsterdam by renowned photographer, director and long term Editors collaborator Rahi Rezvani.

‘Violence’ Tracklisting:
1. Cold
2. Hallelujah (So Low)
3. Violence
4. Darkness At The Door
5. Nothingness
6. Magazine
7. No Sound But the Wind
8. Counting Spooks
9. Belong
