Story by Jack Foley

EDITORS have announced a full UK tour for October, culminating in a headline show at London’s Brixton Academy on October 24, 2018.

Tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday from the band’s website.

The tour announcement follows three sold out album launch shows at Birmingham Town Hall, Manchester Cathedral and London Clapham Grand to celebrate the forthcoming release of eagerly anticipated album Violence (released this Friday on Play It Again Sam).

The Autumn tour dates follow a busy summer of live shows for Editors, which sees them support The Cure at their huge BST Hyde Park show on July 7, play Manchesters Neighbourhood Festival on May 27 and headline the Werchter Classic on July 14.

Violence is the sixth album from Editors, and follows 2015’s acclaimed top 5 In Dream. It is produced by Leo Abrahams (Wild Beasts, Florence & The Machine, Frightened Rabbit) and Editors with additional production from Benjamin John Power (Blanck Mass, Fuck Buttons) and mixed by Cenzo Townshend, except ‘Hallelujah (So Low)’ mixed by Alan Moulder.
