Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark Confirm Spring / Summer 2013 North American Tour

LP Highlights, besides the first single, include the radioactive clatter of "Atomic Ranch" - a songwhich satires conventional aspirations with computerised voices - "Kissing The Machine" - which was composed in collaboration with early influence Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos -and "Helen of Troy" - which revives the recurring historical figure motif.
McCluskey says of the album; "The overarching feel tends to be a sense of loss, of melancholia, that things haven't turned out the way you wanted them to, whether it be with technology or personal relationships." The title itself - taken from a British industrial manufacturing company - has further resonance for the pair as locomotive enthusiasts and self-confessed technology geeks.

This is the follow-up to 2010's History of Modern and the band's 12th album to date.

The album is being released on standard CD format, as a deluxe edition - with media book and bonus DVD - vinyl format - ltd edition die cut sleeve on heavyweight vinyl, as a limited edition deluxe tin boxset, as well as digitally.    
The original four-piece - Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Malcolm Holmes and Martin Cooper - will be reunited once again this spring for a string of must-see shows, which commemorate the band's 35th anniversary.
