Birmingham post-punk band Editors released their sixth album, Violence, earlier this year, and will visit Dublin this October in support of it.

Channelling the sound of bands like Joy Division, Interpol, and Echo and the Bunnymen, Editors made a big splash in the noughties with their brooding look, and dark, driving rhythms.

Crafted across 2016 and 2017, Violence sees the band addressing what they see as the persistent brutality of contemporary life, from its ultra-consumerist culture, to its tyrannical politicians, fake news, and beyond.

One of few bands from their era who have survived and thrived, Editors are still going strong 15 years into their career and show no sign of slowing down.
