‘Magazine’ marks the first release for Editors in three years and is an interesting shift in style for the Birmingham rock band. The single is an anthemic pop song that savagely attacks the empty gestures and posturing of those in power. The industrial chords and exhilarating chorus are sure to whet the appetite for the bands upcoming sixth album Violence, released 9th March on PIAS.

Editors frontman Tom Smith says, “‘Magazine’ is 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.”

Check out the video below.
