Editors are an English indie rock band from Birmingham, consisting of Tom Smith (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano), Chris Urbanowicz (lead guitar and synth), Russell Leetch (bass guitar and backing vocals), and Ed Lay (drums, percussion and live backing vocals). In 2006, Editors were nominated for the Mercury Prize.

The band met studying Music Technology at Staffordshire University and then relocated to Birmingham after graduation. Their brand of sweeping indie rock is frequently compared to the sound of bands such as Interpol, Echo and the Bunnymen, Joy Division, Franz Ferdinand, Kitchens of Distinction, The Chameleons and U2. The band were not always known by their current name, but were known as (The) Pride, before they changed the line-up and became known as Snowfield (Ed Lay replaced Geraint Owen on drums as he began to focus on his Welsh band The Heights), they played their debut gig at the request of Fused Magazine before becoming a popular unsigned band. They remained with this name until they signed with Kitchenware Records in September 2004.

Editors' debut single "Bullets" was released as a limited edition of 500 on Kitchenware Records on 24 January 2005; and was produced by Gavin Monaghan, also known for his work with The Twang and Scott Matthews. It quickly gained support from radio stations such as Xfm and 6music. As other singles were released their popularity and fanbase grew larger. Their debut album The Back Room was released 25 July 2005, to critical acclaim and commercial success. After the re-issue of their single "Munich" "The Back Room" rose up the charts peaking at number 2, going platinum in the process. The Back Room was released in the United States on 21 March 2006 on FADER Label and sold 35,000 albums after 20 weeks, also breaking sales records there. The lead single in the US, "Munich" received radio airplay from a number of American stations supporting indie music, including two major Los Angeles radio stations; KXLU 88.9 FM and KCRW 89.9 FM. As evidence of the buzz the band has created across the pond, they were slated to play influential American festivals in 2006 such as Coachella and Lollapalooza. Editors performed "Munich" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien on Thursday March 30, 2006. The song was also featured in the video game Saints Row on the Xbox 360.

Following a brief string of dates in the United States in late July and early August, Editors departed for shows in Europe and Japan before returning to the UK to record their next album, An End Has A Start, with producer Jacknife Lee. The new album was recorded in Grouse Lodge, Ireland. Some of the new songs are from when they first began to perform live during 2006: "Bones" and "Weight of the World", which is a version of a song which was formerly known as "Every Little Piece of Your Life", a Snowfield demo. Other new songs on the album include "Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors", "The Racing Rats", "An End Has a Start", "When Anger Shows", "Push Your Head Towards the Air", "A Thousand Pieces", and "Spiders". Stripped down acoustic versions of some of these tracks, and some exclusive new songs were recorded with producer Gavin Monaghan at The Magic Garden studio in Wolverhampton.

Editors' second album, An End Has a Start was released on June 25 2007. It was preceded by the single "Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors" on the 18th. Tom Smith also mentioned "Weve definitely moved on, it's definitely not the same record again. It's much more ambitious. We never felt like we were going through any kind of difficult second album nonsense. We never hit any wall of 'we don't have enough singles' or 'that sounds shit'. It was all very natural and easy-going." On June 23, 2007, Editors played at the Glastonbury Festival. Their set included: "Bones", "All Sparks", "Bullets", "Blood", "Escape the Nest", "An End Has a Start", "Munich", "Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors" and "Fingers in the Factories".

From the summer of 2007, the band have been playing a new song called Banging Heads at their gigs. This will be a b-side to their next single The Racing Rats.

On October 24, 2007, Editors played a 75 minute set for the BBC Electric Proms at KOKO in London with backing from a classical string quartet. Following their first number, "Bones", Tom Smith said "We are very proud and honoured to be part of the Electric Proms. It is traditional to do something different so tonight there are eight of us onstage together."
