Editors Drop Karma Climb And Announce Tour

Birmingham-hailing English rock outfit Editors have announced details of their seventh album EBM, which drops via Play It Again Sam on 23rd September. The Tom Smith-led group has also expanded to six-piece with Blanck Mass (Benjamin John Power) joining as a full time member last month. Power (also of F*** Buttons) previously worked with the band on their 2018 sixth album Violence.

Following the release of single Heart Attack, Editors have also released a second cut from the new record by way of storming new track Karma Climb, Smith’s distinctive vocals shining through an electronic, New Wave-infused fuzz. Discussing the new single, Smith says: “It’s about hedonistic escapism, not only from the world generally, but also from what people think of you.”

On the topic of his group’s seventh record Blanck Mass adds: “There is a strong physicality to this record. EBM started its life with the intention of connecting with people and filling a very physical space. There is also however an emotional physicality running throughout; an urgency and a sense of panic. An unease. Even in its more tender moments there is a yearning for connection.”

“Ben has certainly been a shot of adrenaline in our creative process,” frontman Tom Smith adds of working with Power. “The songs are so immediate, and in your face.” He also says of Karma Climb: “It’s about hedonistic escapism, not only from the world generally, but also from what people think of you.”
