Editors: Guitarist split still raw

Editors have released their fourth album

Editors' frontman Tom Smith has said guitarist Chris Urbanowicz's departure from the band was like splitting up with a girlfriend.

Urbanowicz was asked to leave after a traumatic period during the making of their fourth album.

"For the first time in the band's history, we didn't like what we were writing," said the singer.

"There was no excitement, nothing. After that, back in the rehearsal room, things got really dark. We didn't fight or anything, but communication totally broke down, we all stopped talking, and we realised collectively we wanted to go on without Chris."

The frontman said "things ended very badly" and that "it's still very raw".

He added: "Chris had a narrow frame of what he wanted to do, and that's fine when you all want similar things, but when you want to change things up, it's not good enough.

"It was like breaking up with a girlfriend, and it's scary realising that it won't work any more."

:: Editors' fourth album The Weight Of Your Love is out now.
