Video of the Moment #2900: Editors

By on Wednesday, 17th October 2018 at 6:00 pm

Editors are currently in the middle of a UK tour, which picks up again tomorrow, the 18th of October, at the venerated Manchester Apollo. The group led by Tom Smith has always been known to prefer the dark to the light, the obscured to the clear. Their latest video for a single taken from their current album, their sixth, ‘Violence’, released in March, is no exception. The visuals for ‘Cold’ were filmed by their longtime cinematic collaborator Rahi Rezvani and against the desolate backdrop of Iceland. Joining Smith but in separate scenes on this shadowy journey is American ballet dancer Drew Jacoby, interpreting Editors’ emotions through movement. Watch the artistry of ‘Cold’ below’. Editors’ next three live shows – Manchester, Birmingham on Friday the 19th and Leeds on the Saturday the 20th – are all sold out. ‘Violence’ is out now on PIAS.

Live Gig Video: Editors share promo for ‘Darkness at the Door’, taken from current album ‘Violence’ and filmed in Amsterdam

By on Wednesday, 18th April 2018 at 4:00 pm

Editors had a busy March. They released their sixth studio album ‘Violence’. Tom Smith and co. also played the Continent, including a massive show at the 17,000 capacity Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. While at the Dutch behemoth of a venue, someone had the good idea of filming parts of the show, including their performance of ‘Darkness at the Door’, the newest single to be taken from the LP. The visuals were prepared by long-time collaborator Rahi Rezvani, and it gives you some idea of what it’s like to be at an Editors show like this, exit streamers and all. Watch the video below. Editors will be touring the UK in October, check out all the tour dates through here. For all of our past coverage on the group, go here.

Video of the Moment #2795: Editors

By on Sunday, 25th February 2018 at 10:00 am

Veteran London alt-rock band Editors have just unveiled another edgy new promo video from their upcoming LP ‘Violence’, due out on the 9th of March via PIAS. The latest track from ‘Violence’ is titled ‘Hallelujah (So Low)’, and it continues both the emotional tone and and the expanded musical style of previous single ‘Magazine’.

Though guitars feature prominently in Rahi Rezvani‘s visual representation of ‘Hallelujah (So Low)’, it’s the synths and the layered vocal effects that make the major first aural impression. The instrumental arrangement behind the verses is slick and cooly atmospheric, but even more chilling is Tom Smith’s ominous drawl in the title lyric, which is guaranteed to send shivers up your spine. To accompany the premiere of new video, Smith gave an interview to Billboard’s Bryan Kress, which you can read through this link. Watch the promo video for ‘Hallelujah (So Low)’ just below. TGTF’s full previous coverage of Editors is collected back here.


Video of the Moment #2769: Editors

By on Wednesday, 17th January 2018 at 6:00 pm

Editors are back, and with a vengeance. The English alt-rockers’ sixth studio album ‘Violence’ is due out on the 9th of March via PIAS, and its lead single ‘Magazine’ is a powerful introduction to what the LP might have in store. Heavy with industrial synths and overdriven guitars, ‘Magazine’ makes a bold musical statement under sharply cynical vocal lines directed toward those who “talk the loudest / with a clenched fist”.

Lead vocalist Tom Smith describes ‘Magazine’ as “a pointed finger aimed at those in power . . . a tongue in cheek poke at the empty posturing and playing to the masses of the power hungry.” Its promo video, directed by Editors’ regular visual collaborator Rahi Rezvani, illustrates the inherent lyrical conflict in a very direct and dramatic way, with ensemble dance choreography that is nothing short of spectacular.

In addition to the promo video for ‘Magazine’, Editors have announced a full slate of worldwide tour dates, starting with the three UK pre-album launch shows listed below. A complete list of Editors’ upcoming shows, including a run of American dates in May and multiple summer festival appearances, can be found on their official Web site. TGTF’s extensive past coverage of Editors is collected back here.

Sunday 4th March 2018 – Birmingham Town Hall
Monday 5th March 2018 – Manchester Cathedral
Tuesday 6th March 2018 – London Clapham Grand


Video of the Moment #2118: Editors

By on Friday, 17th June 2016 at 6:00 pm

Following on from the other promo videos that have been developed for their current album, Editors have a new video out today for this Friday. Like those past videos, this one for ‘All the Kings’ was directed by Iranian-born photographer Rahi Rezvani in a stark black and white style. The single features on ‘In Dream’, the group’s fifth album released last autumn. (Read Carrie’s review of the long player over here.) As for the song itself, singer Tom Smith describes it as “a pop moment on ?’In Dream?’; us channeling our inner Eurythmics. I’m singing about being alone, not in a sad way, trying to get to something empowering?.”

Check out the new promo below. Both single ‘All the Kings’ and album ‘In Dream’ are available from PIAS. This summer, Editors are scheduled to play at Glastonbury on Friday the 24th June, Y Not Festival on the 29th of July and Victorious Festival on the 27th of August.
