OMD kicked off their 2013 North American tour Friday night in Vancouver.

The long-running British new wave band is touring in support of new album English Electric. The record is the follow-up to 2010’s History of Modern and OMD’s 12th album to date.

English Electric was written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD – Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys. The record is said to be a return to form for the band whose 1980 hit “Enola Gay” was resurrected for last year’s Olympics Opening Ceremony.

    Thank you so much. We, in Seattle, were forbidden to take any images or so I was warned. It WAS a fantastic show.
