It's an epic return...

Editors have posted new track 'The Sting' online - listen to it now.

Ending four years of silence, Editors recently confirmed plans for a new studio album. Racing back into the fray, the band quickly unveiled new single 'A Ton Of Love'.

Due to be released on June 17th, the single will be available as a digital download and on seven inch vinyl. Alongside the lead track, the single will contain the album's lead track 'The Weight' and soon-to-be-live-favourite 'The Sting'.

A return to the brooding, melancholic brand of post-punk which made their debut such an enormous commercial success, 'The Sting' is an epic, widescreen piece of songwriting. Sure, comparisons to Echo & The Bunnymen can be made, but listen to those piano seizures, the cooing backing vocals - this is prime Editors, make no mistake.

Listen to 'The Sting' below.

Editors new album 'The Weight Of Your Love' is set to be released on July 1st.
