Editors Return to US for First Time in Six Years

The album, released in October, was recorded by the band members themselves and released on PIAS records. It's the first to fold in contributions beyond the core group, featuring Slowdive's Rachel Goswell on "Ocean of Night," "The Law," and "Oh My World," and the second album featuring the band's new lineup of Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams (alongside founding members Tom Smith, Russell Leetch, and Ed Lay) since former guitarist Chris Urbanowicz departed the group in 2012 "due to a difference in musical direction," according to the band's website.
In Dream also marks a change in the band's ever-shifting sound, returning to electronic-based forms after the straight-ahead rock of its previous album, The Weight of Your Love.
The band recently observed the 10th anniversary of its debut album, Back Room, which helped "launched them from the close-knit Birmingham scene to relatively instant success," says an item over at the Guardian.
