The nine track LP is their first with latest band member Benjamin John Power, aka Ivor Novello winning producer and composer Blanck Mass.

The album title is an acronym of Editors and Blanck Mass but also a reference to Electronic Body Music, the potent sound that originated in the 1980s and which has hugely influenced Editors’ new material.

Daily Echo: Editors

All six of the band's studio albums over their 17-year career have charted in the UK top ten, with two scoring number ones, and their debut, The Back Room, being shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.
