Frontman Tom Smith explains that the new track is "about hedonistic escapism, not only from the world generally, but also from what people think of you.”

It follows the recent release of another new track, Heart Attack, which features the new six-piece Editors, as the band recently added Benjamin John Power aka Blanck Mass to their line-up.

Power, who has been working with Editors since 2018's Violence, says of the new album: “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.”

EBM is available to pre-order now via www.editors-official.com.

Editors have also announced UK and Ireland tour dates for early 023. Tickets for the shows will go on sale at 10am on Friday 10th June also via www.editors-official.com.
