Words: Ellie Ward

Premiered last night (January 15) on Jo Whiley’s BBC Radio Two show, Editors share the video for new single ‘Magazine’.

The track comes from the band's forthcoming album ‘Violence’ - their first in three years - which will be released on March 9 via PIAS.

The video to ‘Magazine’ -  “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" - was filmed in Amsterdam by photographer and director Rahi Rezvani.

Editors have also announced three intimate album launch shows in venues they’ve never previously played:

04 Birmingham, Town Hall
05 Manchester, Cathedral
06 London, Clapham Grand

Pre-sale tickets go on sale Thursday (January 18) at 9am, with general sale tickets following on Friday (January 19) at 9am. Pre-sales are available to fans who pre-order the album through the band's website.
