Out on September 9 via White Noise Records is the newest Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) album “The Punishment Of Luxury”. The announcement is accompanied by the very beautifully animated video of the track “La Mitrailleuse”, which you can view below.
The new album will be OMD’s 13th studio album so far and is the follow up to the well received “English Electric” LP (released in 2013). The new material was as usual written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD (Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys). In case you wondered what the title refers to, it takes its name from an 1891 painting by the Italian Giovani Segantini.
Here’s the video for “La Mitrailleuse”.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
