Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (often abbreviated to OMD ) are a synth pop group whose founder members are originally from the Wirral Peninsula, UK. OMD record for Virgin Records (originally for Virgin’s DinDisc subsidiary).
The group was founded by Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, and they formed the core of the outfit until 1989, when the group split. McCluskey then retained the name and continued to record and tour as OMD with a new line-up.
In late December 2005, OMD ’s official website announced a 2006 reformation, for both live performances and a new album, with rehearsals beginning in summer 2006. The planned line up will feature the original 1980’s members. Recently however, the planned Architecture & Morality tour for late 2006 was postponed until the beginning of 2007
