OMD Map Out North American Tour

(Press Here) Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark have announced an extensive North American tour this fall.

The 21-stop tour will feature the original OMD line up of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Martin Cooper (keyboards) and Malcolm Holmes (drums).

Kicking off September 16 in Miami, the outing brings the band to New York, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Dallas, San Francisco and many more.

In cities where they performed this spring, OMD will be playing a slightly different set of songs to keep the show fresh, but will still include all the hits and classic fan favorites.

OMD is touring in support of History of Modern, their first new album in 14 years. Released last fall via Bright Antenna/ILG, the album has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide and continues to receive overwhelming praise. Interview Magazine calls it "a forward-thinking but nostalgic visit to OMD's synth-y past….they are as influential as the band's contemporaries—Numan, Depeche Mode, even Joy Division," and the Los Angeles Times states "their updates of Kraftwerk's and Can's analog wrangling still sound like tomorrow."

OMD frontman Andy McCluskey has called it "our best album since Architecture and Morality" – and few would disagree. The album was self-produced by OMD and mixed by one of the UK's most in demand producers Mike Crossey (Artic Monkeys/Blood Red Shoes/Razorlight).
