Favourite Gig: Editors

 Editors will play today at Razzmatazz  their new album, Violence. the British outfit’s sixth album overall.

The record follows 2015’s well-received self-produced effort, In Dream. As signaled by the lead track “Magazine”, Violence finds Editors taking their dark wave rock towards a poppier sound. Some of that is likely the result of working with a producer whom the band had never met — not even during the recording process. After writing the majority of the album in an old cow shed near Oxford, UK, they began collaborating remotely with Benjamin John Power, aka Blanck Mass, leading to some unexpected shifts in style.
