Following the announcement that they will be performing at The Cure’s 40th anniversary concert in London this coming July, Editors have premiered the video for the first track off of their upcoming sixth studio LP Violence, which is out March 9th.
In the soulful track Magazine, Tom Smith is more Peter Gabriel and David Byrne than the John Foxx he channeled on the band’s previous work In Dream.
The band described the song as “a pointed finger aimed at those in power… some corrupt politician or businessman… a character, and a tongue in cheek poke at the empty posturing and playing to the masses of the power hungry.”
