OMD release a limited edition DVD titled Live at the Museum in Liverpool this fall. The footage was captured last November during the band's two-night multi-media event at the Pier Waterfront in Liverpool where they performed Dazzle Ships in full. OMD shared another preview of the DVD which is available to view below and fans can pre-order the DVD directly through Pledge Music. According to OMD, the DVD is strictly limited edition and only 2000 copies of the DVD will be released.

Meanwhile, OMD's Paul Humphreys is currently on the mend in New York after undergoing emergency gallbladder surgery. The incident forced Humphreys to miss OMD's recent show in Scotland, but according to Humphreys he's set to rejoin the band for their festival gigs this weekend. Read his statement here and watch Andy McCluskey attempt to sing "Souvenir" without Humphreys below:

"I take my hat off to him for doing it anyway and I think he did a great job, but I'm sure Andy would be the first to say it was the first and last time, but a nice one-off treat for everyone there, right?" ~ Paul Humphreys

"You are the only people who will ever hear me sing that song live...thank you for putting up with me" ~ Andy McCluskey
