Born in the early 2000s to a group of university friends in Birmingham, England, Editors emerged in an indie wave with which they had little in common except their use of guitars. Led by Tom Smith and Russell Leetchgli, they initially called themselves Pilot but soon changed their name because it was already used by a band from the 70s.

The notable success of their first album “The Back Room” (2005), thanks to singles such as “Bullets” and “Munich”, earned them a nomination for the prestigious Mercury Prize. “An End Has A Start” (2007) follows, driven by the single of the same name, which was also well received. However, the group showed courage and a desire to take risks, so in 2009 they embraced synths and released “In This Light and on This Evening”, characterized by a darker sound, present since the first single “Papillon”.

In 2022, after six albums, “EBM” was released: a mix of pop, classical, new wave, industrial rock and electronic dance, with post-punk and psychedelic influences. The album recalls artists such as New Order and Giorgio Moroder, and industrial groups such as Nitzer Ebb, Front 242 and D.A.F., as well as the Electronic Body Music scene, from which it takes its name.

Indie rock, post punk, new wave, synth pop, stadium songs: the Editors put all this together with personality, in a twenty-year career always lived at very high creative levels and public feedback. It is no coincidence that all their albums have been in the UK Top 10, and two have reached number 1. Their latest tour saw them play their biggest ever headline show at Wembley, proving their ever-growing fan base.
