As mentioned, synthpop veterans OMD are releasing English Electric on April 9. That's the cover art above which is definitely giving off some Architecture & Morality / Dazzle Ships vibes.

The band will visit North America this spring for a West Coast tour that includes both Sundays of Coachella 2013. They will then be back this summer to hit the rest of the continent, including a stop in NYC at Terminal 5 on July 17. Tickets to that show go on sale Friday (2/1) at noon. All tour dates and the video for new track "Decimal" are below.

Brooklyn Vegan's love affair with one of the more non-descript and forgettable bands from the 80's-era continues...

I touch you once...
I touch you twice...
I won't go to T5 at any price

OMD I love you, you incredibly unforgettable band from the 80's

424 I was going to say the same thing. Before they turned into a pop act they were one of the best and most original and important new wave/synth pop bands around. I saw them a couple of times in the early 80's and they were great. I agree about T5. I don't know if I can go back there. The sound just plain sucks there. I've seen around 15 shows there over the years. Maybe 3 of them sounded really good.

How bizarre, how bizarre.

418, too cool for school, eh? Enjoy your obscure Finnish indie music (who I know are "so amazing") that nobody cares about.

I was a big fan of OMD the first time around...I hadn't heard until yesterday that they're back together, and recording new songs. If the rest are as good as this taste, I'm looking forward to it!
