Editors will play for the first time in Kiev and present the best hits
They are known thanks to the stunning live and eccentric behavior of frontman Tom Smith. All their albums, which sold over 2.5 million copies, ended up in the top 10 of the UK chart, and the debut album, The Back Room, was even nominated for a Mercury Prize. And like a cherry on a cake - they shot a video in the capital for one of the last singles, which proved that they are equally good, both in guitar music and in electronic.
After a three-year break, the outstanding British rockers Editors are returning to Ukraine. For the first time they won the audience at the Zaxidfest festival, and now they are preparing for a concert debut in the capital.
April 1, Stereo Plaza.
Editors go to Kiev for a reason, and with the presentation of the best of-album called Black Gold. It will include the best tracks from all six releases of the group plus three new songs: Black Gold, Upside Down and Frankenstein. It was on the last track that a video was shot in Ukraine.
According to frontman Tom Smith, the idea of making such a release has ripened for a long time, but everyone did not get their hands on it.
"Talk about the best of the album has been going on for the past three to four years. But each time it seemed to us that the time was not right, because new songs were born in a stream. But now the moment is just right."
Black Gold is a great opportunity to showcase the development of Editors over the past 15 years. And a great way to introduce to their work people who have not heard the band before.
"We are still in the ranks, and I am proud of this fact. They say that being a long-liver is not cool, but I don’t think so. With Black Gold we recorded a new version of Editors, which is starving for concerts and new songs. We felt I’m somewhere away from the general musical process, but I always wrote tracks that sifted through people and resonated at the deepest level inside.This may sound pretentious, but there are many people for whom Editors are more than a group. his life, "Smith admits.
So get ready to open your hearts and souls to the noble craziness of Editors. And it's not a joke.
