Electronic heavyweights OMD have revealed details of their upcoming 13th studio LP The Punishment Of Luxury, with new music streaming now.

OMD will release their new album The Punishment Of Luxury on 1 September. You can get the first taste of the new album, an animated video for the instrumental 'La Mitrailleuse' above.

The self-produced album is their first since 2013's English Electric. Speaking about the release, the band's Andy McCluskey said: "On this album we have managed to make beautiful things out of noises and repetitive patterns. The trouble is, we just cant help but write a catchy melody!"

The band have also announced details of a comprehensive UK tour throughout October and November. You can get tickets and see all the dates here.
