    “An Extraordinary piece of music…. A debut that will endure.” – NME

    “The Back Room is a restless, spooky masterpiece” - Spin (40 Best Albums of 2006)

    “I feel like Editors’ debut album has shocked everyone with just how stunning it is. The more I spin their songs, the more I realize just how good this band is. Editors have what it takes to be the break out artist everyone is talking about.” – Nic Harcourt, KCRW

    Just a small dose of what some were saying about Editors 2006 debut record, The Back Room. So it comes with no surprise that the English band’s follow-up, An End Has a Start (Epic/FaderLabel) will be one of this summer’s most highly anticipated releases…and Baeble Blog is all too happy to provide all the details.

    Direct from Editors HQ:
    “Recorded in Ireland at Grouse Lodge with the Grammy Award winning producer Garret “Jacknife” Lee (U2, Green Day, Snow Patrol, Bloc Party), An End Has A Start reinforces the visceral power of Editors’ music and emphasizes the band’s desire to stretch themselves musically, lyrically, and conceptually. Whilst their debut album, The Back Room, seethed with claustrophobic menace and icy grandeur, An End Has A Start sees lead singer and lyricist Tom Smith more focused on the power of redemption and the human necessity for friendship and family in the face of death. Tom explains: “Realizing everything comes to an end is important and I think we’ve done our best to make it something glorious and uplifting as well as scary.” Tom is keen to stress, however, that not all is bleak in Editors’ world as they deftly balance the dark with the light, culminating in a sound that is both cathartic and deeply passionate. The record also reflects the hectic touring of the last two years that saw Editors play everywhere from Istanbul to Osaka: “Living in an over-populated but exciting world, the buzz of the city, electricity, neon, lights, skyscrapers, planes, billions of people all run through the lyrics of songs on the record.””
