Last month, Editors released their sixth album, Violence. Following “Magazine” and “Hallelujah (So Low),” they’ve launched “Darkness At The Door” as the third single. It’s perhaps the cheeriest song on the album, and among the lighter tunes among their entire catalog, its name notwithstanding. The song celebrates friendships that last and always feel like home.
Its new music video may look like your average concert footage clip, but it actually serves to illustrate that lyrical message. After all, Editors’ fans have been with them for well over a decade, and that’s pretty close to friendship, right?
The video for “Darkness At The Door” shows the band performing in front of 17,000 fans at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. Director Rahi Rezvani captured the sold-out show and all of Editors’ electric energy onstage. Their enthusiasm is contagious as Tom Smith, Russell Leetch, Ed Lay, Justin Lockey, and Elliott Williams play and rile up the crowd.
