It is my hope to preserve many of the photos posted in the forums over the years so as we continue to focus on the history of the band and it’s original incarnation, and if we post photos from the forum that belong to you and you want them removed or given proper credit, PLEASE let us know. Thank you!
A lot can happen in a few weeks. Within a couple of weeks of this interview happening Editors went in to the studio with mournful Mancs Elbow to record “Let Your Good Heart Lead You Home”, the B-side to new single “Blood”. Designer Magazine however did catch up with Tom (Vocals) and Russell (bass) to discuss the bands appearance on the surreal MTV Spanking New Series of gigs, the bands formation in Brum and the forthcoming album “The Back Room”
Q: New band, well Spanking New band according to MTV. The obvious question first - is this your first band and how did you get together?
Russell: Yeah. We formed at University, we’ve been going for a couple of years although we lived together for about 4 years. After we finished Uni we decided to give it a go and that’s what we’ve been doing ever since.

Hello everyone. It’s rare that we post non-queued items these days for a multitude of reasons but this is something we feel quite strongly about and there are so many of the band’s fans here that we thought it might be nice to announce this here.
The official band forum at http://editorsofficialforum.com is closing this Thursday, 17 of July. To us this is an unsurprising but sad course of events because even though the forum format is fairly dead these days, there is a lot of history on that website. Not just for us as fans and a fan based community but more importantly the history of the band itself. Launched in early 2005, you can look back through threads that show the band’s early days and early songwriting, band members posting, gig reviews and photos and right up to today. To lose this I believe is losing a historical document in the world of Editors. Not mention all the hours we both spent there in the early days of our own discovery of the band back in 2005. Neither one of us was very active but we connected a lot with people we shared words with in messages there a met up with people at shows all over the world.
I have no illusions that someone will come along and save the site, although it would be really awesome if someone could preserve it just so those old memories of where the band once was in it’s life could be retained. But what I can do is tell you all about it, make sure you give it a look before it is gone and maybe reminisce a little about where this little band we all have loved has been.
Please note as well some fans of the forum are setting up a new home over at
and as always, the lovely Drew continues to run the Archive over at
