Editors have revealed that they have started recording their new album and have unveiled some tentative track names.

The band have relocated to Ireland for a month to ‘record the bulk’ of their second long-player.

They are holed up in the studio with Garrett ‘Jacknife’ Lee (U2, Snow Patrol) to work on 12 tracks which they have already written.

Amongst the tracks in the mix are ‘The Weight of the World’ and ‘Bones’, which the band aired during their ultimate tour date in Istanbul in September.

Frontman Tom Smith said: “The album won’t be finished before Christmas but the break will give us chance to see our families, eat mince pies, get drunk and say hi to Santa, then maybe some more writing before we start recording again in the New Year.”

Other track names in the running are:

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
An Eye For An Eye
