OMD To Tour The USA
OMD have announced a US leg on their forthcoming ‘English Electric’ tour, with two sets of shows in April and July respectively. The shows are part of the band’s tour for their new ‘English Electric’ album which will be released in April.
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) are a British New Wave group formed in 1978, whose founding members, Andy McCluskey (vocals, bass guitar) and Paul Humphreys (keyboards, vocals), are originally from the Wirral Peninsula, England. The band rose to fame with their fourth single “Enola Gay”, which became a major hit throughout Europe in 1980, and achieved worldwide popularity the following year with their third album Architecture & Morality. Regarded as the band’s seminal work, it spawned three international hit singles and propelled them to superstar status in their home country. OMD, whose music frequently eschewed traditional pop music arrangements in favour of experimentation, were retrospectively described by AllMusic’s Ned Raggett as having been “in the enviable position of at once being creative innovators and radio-friendly pop giants.”
