The neo-post-punk quartet Editors formed in 2003. The group comprised singer/guitarist Tom Smith, guitarist Chris Urbanowicz, bassist Russell Leetch, and drummer Ed Lay. A series of a well-received club dates and a single demo tape earned Editors the interest of British labels large and small, and after a bidding frenzy the group signed to a revitalized Kitchenware, the venerable British indie once home to Prefab Sprout. Kitchenware issued their debut single, "Bullets," in early January 2005 and the record sold out in one day, earning comparison to the dark, dramatic sound of contemporary bands like Interpol and Bloc Party as well as ancestors like Joy Division and Echo & the Bunnymen. ~ Jason Ankeny
