Editors announce exclusive album 'first listen' competition

Editors fans from across Europe will be given a unique chance to listen and share their reactions to the new album "Violence". Through an exclusive online competition launched today, 6 lucky fans (each with a friend) can win the chance to spend a day and a night staying in a historic 16th Century farmhouse in Surrey and be amongst the first in the world to listen to the band's sixth studio album.

The farm boasts excellent facilities including a heated swimming pool, hot tub and tennis court which winners can exclusively enjoy.

Winners will be treated to a short acoustic set by the band, who will also participate in an Q&A session with fans. All winners, plus a further 20 runners up will receive a limited test pressing vinyl LP signed by the band.

To enter, fans should visit http://www.editorsofficial.com/competition - and upload a video of themselves telling the world what Editors means to them and why they love the band. The entries will be judged on creativity and passion by a panel of judges, with the band choosing the final winners.

Entries for the main prize must be submitted by 23.59 GMT on 31st January 2018 in order to qualify.

Entries will remain open for the runners up prizes, and winners will be determined on the 28th February.
