The band currently consists of Tom Smith (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Russell Leetch (bass guitar, synthesiser, backing vocals), Ed Lay (drums, percussion, backing vocals), Justin Lockey (lead guitar), and Elliott Williams (keys, synthesisers, guitars, and backing vocals). In 2005 they released their debut album: The Back Room. Some of their biggest hits are ‘Papillon’ and ‘The Racing Rats’. In March 2018 they released their sixth album: Violence.

Music From The Podcasts

A British study shows that Tom Smith is a singer with the greatest vocal range from Great Britain. He has a range of 4.75 octaves. And therefore can sing both very high and very low. Check it out in ‘No Harm’:

No Sound But The Wind‘ is the soundtrack from The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Editors played the song for the first time on Glastonbury 2008. They even released their live version on Rock Werchter in 2010:

According to Thomas, one of the reasons that everyone should be a fan is the live performance of the band. The sound is good, Tom Smith dances and moves around on stage and it’s also an impressive visual show. To illustrate that, Thomas showed us the Editors on Lowlands 2017: This is ‘Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drol’.
