Live In Berlin to be a limited edition, deluxe account of last year's History Of Modern tour

Add your comment »

Seminal synth-poppers Orchestral Manoeures In The Dark have announced the release of a limited edition live CD, entitled OMD Live In Berlin.

The album is billed as full account of their performance in Berlin last year as part of their History Of Modern tour, containing some of their best known material including 'Souvenir', 'Enola Gay' and 'Joan Of Arc'. In keeping with the modern day trend for extravagant boxsets, it arrives in a deluxe package containing "a hard back book from the tour, never before seen hand written notes, recent letters from the group to their fans, and a selection of lyrics".

Front man Andy McClusky says of the album: "We see it as a way to share our life on the road with the people who have been there with us for the span of a career. It's something we're excited to experience with our fans."

OMD Live In Berlin will be released on August 22nd, in a limited edition of 1000. It will be sold from the band's website, and is already up for pre-order.

For more on OMD, read our interview from late last year, where we chat about their legacy, the death of creativity and why they're continuing to push the envelope.

Thanks for mentioning the limited issue aspect of this. Their own website makes nary a mention and I was slacking off to buy it later. No longer! OMD have made an excellent new album, one that I've enjoyed more than anything that came after "Dazzle Ships." Actually, this is the album I've played the most in the last decade, truth be told. And they seem to have a good view of where they should go next, in spite of the occasional gaffes on HOM. I saw the US tour this spring and will welcome this package in my home, now that it's been pre-ordered.

By the way, the link you provided to the OMD website is wrong. The correct URL is: http://www.omd.uk.com
