OMD Announce Tour.

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark have announced that this autumn they will embark on the History of Modern tour with their classic line-up of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Martin Cooper and Malcolm Holmes.

In an update from the band this week they said they are in the studio putting the finishing touches on the new album, the appropriately titled
History Of Modern. Andy McCluskey has said that it is their "best album since Architecture and Morality." History of Modern is the first album of new material from OMD's original line-up since 1986's The Pacific Age.

The History of Modern tour is a UK and Europe tour only, but regarding the USA Andy and Paul said last Thursday that they, "are really frustrated that we have not yet been able to get to the States to play live. It looks like we will be signing to a great new label in the USA and will prioritize playing gigs over there in 2011. You have not been abandoned...we just needed the right deals in place! Thanks for all the support."
