OMD Unleash New Single/Video "Slow Train"

UK synthpop band OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark) have unleashed their new single “Slow Train” alongside an accompanying video.

The track features on their 14th studio album ‘Bauhaus Staircase‘, due to be released on October 27 via White Noise Records. Pre-order your copy here.

The band have also announced a 2024 UK tour, Howard Jones will be the opening act for one night in London, and Walt Disco at all other shows in March.

“We are so excited to be able to tour again with a brand new album to showcase,” McCluskey said. “It’s been six years since we learned new songs for live performances. The songs from Bauhaus Staircase will fit beautifully into our setlist – we just have to choose which five to play, as we have to treat people to the hits as well!”

About the new single, McCluskey added: “Slow Train is a bonkers song and the video is stunningly crazy!. It feels nice to be able to challenge people’s expectations of the band after 45 years of creating music”
