When bands change their line-up, speculation of huge rifts and clashes often goes into overdrive. Tackling speculation of their own group's troubles head on, Editors have created a documentary ahead of the release of their fourth studio album.

The Huffington Post UK can exclusively bring you the half hour doc, which explains how they came to the decision to part ways with guitarist Chris Urbanowicz in April 2012, in the video above.

Vocalist Tom Smith reveals: "When it went wrong with Chris my gut was to pull the shows and take time to see how we got on with this. But it's a democracy and my opinion was out voted and I'm glad it was."

The group now consists of frontman Tom Smith, Russell Leetch, Ed Lay, Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams.

The Birmingham-based band, who originally formed in 2002 and already have two number one albums under their belt, have now recruited new members Justin Lockey and Elliot Williams. In the video, the pair speak about joining an already established band and performing with Editors for the first time.

The documentary for album 'The Weight of Your Love' was filmed during recording sessions at Nashville's Blackbird studios by James Lockey, guitarist Justin's brother.

The film also features interviews with all band members and Kings Of Leon producer Jacquire King, as well as footage of the band recording and at play around Nashville.

'The Weight Of Your Love' is released on 1 July worldwide and Editors will play their first UK show of the year at Glastonbury. You can also catch them in London at Village Underground on the 1 July, the day of the album’s release.
