The Racing Rats
Editors release a new single from their Number One album, 'An End Has A Start' on November 26th 2007. 'The Racing Rats' has been a highlight of the band's live sets throughout the year. The formats will also include brand new song, 'Banging Heads', which will be familiar to anyone who has seen the band on their current sold out UK tour. 'Banging Heads' was one of the last tracks recorded during the sessions for 'An End Has A Start' but was too late to be considered for inclusion on the album itself.
Editors have had a phenomenal 2007. Having already cemented their position as one of the UK's biggest new bands with platinum debut album, the half million selling 'The Back Room' through 2005/6, the band saw 'An End Has A Start' enter the UK charts at Number One following one of the stand out performances of this year's Glastonbury. The album replicated that success in Europe with Top Ten placings across the continent. The summer saw the band play the festival circuit in a series of high profile shows including an awe inspiring set at Holland's Lowlands to 15,000 fans in a huge marquee, a blistering performance received with open arms at Scotland's T In The Park and a high profile tour across the USA. In between, the band managed to take in their first tour of Australia and return to Japan.
