With their 13th studio album The Punishment Of Luxury, synth-pop pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark release new single and the title track impacting now.

The Punishment Of Luxury is written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD; Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, pairing crushing electro rhythms with characteristically serene melodies sounding unapologetically electronic.

The track and album are named after an 1891 painting by the Italian divisionist Giovanni Segantini that caught Andy’s eye. Andy explains, “Most people in the western world are materially better off than their predecessors ever were and yet we are unhappier. Now we have many possessions that we don’t need because we’ve been persuaded to buy. This is the punishment of luxury.”

Having played a triumphant sold out show at the Royal Albert Hall in May last year, OMD head back out on the road again this autumn for a string of must-see shows, including a show at The Roundhouse November 13th.
