Editors

Formed in 2003, Editors became one of the leading bands in the post-punk revival that swept America and England in the early 21st century. Originally dubbed Snowfield, the group comprised four music technology students from Stafford University -- singer/guitarist Tom Smith, lead guitarist Chris Urbanowicz, bassist Russell Leetch, and drummer Ed Lay -- all of whom had relocated to Birmingham after graduation. A series of a well-received club dates and demo recordings earned Editors some attention from British labels, and the group soon signed with the revitalized Kitchenware, the venerable indie label once home to Prefab Sprout.

Kitchenware issued the band's debut single, "Bullets," in early January 2005. The record reportedly sold out in one day, and its sound earned comparisons to the dark, dramatic atmospherics of contemporary bands like Interpol and Bloc Party (not to mention veteran outfits like Joy Division and Echo & the Bunnymen). Editors' follow-up single, "Munich," made them darlings of the U.K. music press, and just weeks after their standout performance at the annual Glastonbury Music Festival, the band issued a third single, "Blood." Their much-anticipated debut LP, The Back Room, followed in mid-2005. "Munich" was reissued in January 2006 to ramp up support for the album, which entered the Top Five in the U.K. and eventually earned platinum sales. A U.S. tour with stellastarr* coincided with the American release of The Back Room in March, and a Mercury Music Prize nomination followed in July.

Editors' sophomore effort, An End Has a Start, came out the following summer, preceded by the Top 10 single "Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors." Like its predecessor, the album went platinum in the U.K. and maintained the band's modest audience in America, where they returned in September 2007 to launch another stateside tour. Editors remained on the road through the middle of 2008, playing a slew of festivals in the U.K. and opening a string of European shows for R.E.M. before the year was up. By this point the band had grown tired of their sound, however, and 2009 found them tinkering with synthesizers and industrial music. After enlisting the help of producer Flood (known for his work with Depeche Mode, U2, and Nine Inch Nails), they decamped to the studio to record In This Light and on This Evening, which unveiled their newfound electronic fixation upon its release in October 2009.

Eager to build on the success of a second U.K. number one album in a row, Smith immediately began to write material for a prospective fourth full-length. By the time the In This Light and on This Evening promotional tour had ended in late 2010, the band had enough new songs to enter a London studio, with Flood once again behind the desk. The majority of the band weren't satisfied with the initial results of these sessions, and by early 2012, Smith, Leetch, and Lay had asked Urbanowicz to leave Editors, when it became clear that the vision they had for the future of the band was not shared by their guitarist and founding member. Very shortly after Urbanowicz had departed, they were offered a high-profile festival slot in Werchter, Belgium in June 2012. They honoured this commitment, bringing in ex-Yourcodenameis: Milo guitarist Justin Lockey and Airship member Elliott Williams to their lineup, bolstering the band's sound and laying the foundations for the straight-ahead rock approach that their fourth album would ultimately take. Recorded as a five-piece in Nashville with Jacquire King as producer, The Weight of Your Love was issued in June 2013 and nodded to the ambitious, guitar-led, stadium-filling sound of U2 and R.E.M. ~ Jason Ankeny & James Wilkinson, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured(but you won't die) in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. Post this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

Hey Specialist88 , chill out punchy. No need to white knight some guy you don't even know only to go on a brainless nerdrage about s**t that makes you come off like you have suffered extensive brain damage and THEN go on to talk about some spelling error I couldn't have corrected because I didn't even know you existed till you came in here showing your a**. Seek help. The voices inside your head aren't your friends. Jesus, no worse fanboys than the music ones.

The Who SUCK. They smashed their instruments because they couldn't play them. Their lyrics are stupid. Zeppelin are the greatest of that era. btw I was listening to this type of music (Cure, Smiths, Love & Rockets etc.) 30 years ago and was thoroughly mocked by all my metal friends, so I believe I can say whatever the fcuk I want. Yorke's voice is unlistenable . Pretty much all Brit Pop in the 90s sucked.

Interpol a bad knockoff of RADIOHEAD? Ok now I'm pissed. The only band more over rated than Radiohead is The Who

To me, they're just a bad knockoff of Interpol. Honestly, I don't get it.

To me Interpol is just a bad knockoff of Radiohead. Honestly, I don't get it. See I can play that idiotic game of tag too. Want to keep going till we reach back into the musical of the Renaissance?

The Smith & Burrows CD contains Christmas Music. My favorite cuts are When The Thames Froze, Only You, , This Ain't New Jersey, & The Christmas Song with agnes Obel ( an awesome version of The Christmas Song). Hopefully to become Christmas Classics.

Interesting. I guess I never looked at Editors Pandora page. I have The Back Room, and it's outstanding. Of course I only bought it because it was on sale when I was buying other stuff. But I like it, and will buy their other one. If Interpol came first, which they did, then how can you not say copycat? That's not always a bad thing. Oh, and I think they both have stupid lyrics.

Although indeed their style is very similar to that of Interpol there are some distinct differences. . . Perhaps even enough to allow the enjoyment of editors without having to focus on their "copy-cattin e s s " . The vocals, in my opinion are fairly different from those of Interpol. The lead singer's voice is distinctly lower, and maybe even less annoying. I might even go as far as to say that The Editors' vocals are better than Interpol's. However, Interpol has a sort of put-together n e s s that is gud

I love these guys! my favorite quote from one of their songs is, "In the end, all you can hope for is the love you felt to equal the pain you've gone through".

I like them. Listening to Munich I like to imagine Frank Sinatra as the singer.

If Editors is derivate, so is Interpol. A band can make perfectly good music even if it is derivative.

Muse is not a Radiohead wannabe band. Bellamy sounds like Yorke, but only sometimes. Muse has many influences. Queen is another. (Ever heard "Soldier's Poem"?) Muse recalls '70's progressive rock bands at times. To say that Muse is a Radiohead wannabe band is like saying that Beyonce is an Etta James wannabe because she covered "At Last."
