OMD back with new album English Electric, 2013 tour setlist

One often wonders what happens to those great bands of the eighties. Too often, they ignore their roots, and 'maneuver' to reach a new audience. Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark’s (OMD) most recent album “History Of Modern”, their first album released in fifteen years, managed to remain true to their origins. One and a half decades is a long hiatus but they have found a way to bridge the gap of time and created what could arguably be called one of their best records of their career.

English Electric will be OMD’s twelfth album set for release on April 28, 2013. The band has also revealed that they will embark on a 2013 US, CA and EU tour in support of their new album. The tour set list will include songs from their upcoming album “English Electric”.
