Editors have unveiled the first taster of their upcoming new album. Check out ‘No Harm’ 

It seems like only yesterday when the Birmingham post-punk stars dropped 2013’s massive The Weight Of Your Love, but the band are already readying the release of their fifth album, having finished mixing it back in March.

The band remained coy about where to hear the new track, but now it has surfaced on a new compilation CD from label PIAS – with fans since taking online to share the song.

The track is a promising sign of things to come, with the band drawing on synth-y soundscapes to paint a brooding, ominous and cinematic slow-burning as frontman Tom Smith coolly and menacingly pines: “I’ll boil easier than you, crush my bones into glue, I’m a go-getter – the system’s in red, the room is inbred, I’m a go-getter”

REM released its ninth album “Monster” on this day exactly 20 years ago which featured the singles “Whats The Frequency Kenneth”, “Bang and Blame” ,”Strange Currencies”, Crush With Eyeliner” and “Tongue” One of the band rockiest albums with the Alt-Rock guitar sound and with not so much of Peter Buck’s traditional jangly guitar sound but a more distorted style with influences to the Bowie and T.Rex Glam rock sound. Released to good reviews and significant mainstream success and a series of great singles , the band were definately a foundation for the way we think of indie music, influencing artists that would be big in the 1990’s. With one of their best songs included the heartbreaking “Let Me In” . the guitarless with the girl type vocals of “Tongue” and one of their best all time ever singles “Kenneth”
