Editors at Snowbombing!

Nov 6 2009


“The second biggest British band of the decade”  (according to the Mail on Sunday (after Arctic Monkeys), Editors are an indie rock band par excellence, based in Birmingham, who formed in 2002. Previously known as Pilot, The Pride and Snowfield, the band consists of Tom Smith (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano), Chris Urbanowicz (lead guitar and synthesizer), Russell Leetch (bass guitar synth and live backing vocals) and Ed Lay (drums, percussion and live backing vocals).
Editors have so far released two platinum studio albums, selling over 2 million copies between them worldwide. Their debut album The Back Room was released in 2005. It contained hits such as “Munich” and “Blood” and the following year received a Mercury Prize nomination. Their follow-up album An End Has A Start went to number 1 in the UK Album Chart in June 2007 and earned the band a Brit Awards nomination for Best British Band. It also spawned another Top 10 hit single with the release of “Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors”. After their continued success in the charts, sold out tours and numerous headlining festival slots, the bands distinct brand of dark indie rock is habitually compared to the sound of bands such as Echo & the Bunnymen, Joy Division and U2.
Renowned for their explosive live performances, their appearance at Snowbombing will be an undoubted highlight…push your head to the (crisp, alpine) air!
