OMD(Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark)在八十年代末九十年代初长期徘徊于电子大户Virgin公司的旗下，也曾有过好评如潮的历史。Orchestral manoeuvres in the dark是来自英国的组合，新浪潮曲风，令人惊讶的是，他们做出来的音乐一点也不冰冷，反而非常欢快，听了使人心情愉悦。欢快的节奏和电子奏出了非常奇妙的旋律。
History of Modern is the eleventh studio album by British synthpop band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD). It is their first album since 1996, and the first album featuring the classic 4-piece line-up since 1986's The Pacific Age. The album was released in the UK on 20 September 2010, reaching to Top 30. The album was released in the US on Bright Antenna on 28 September 2010. The artwork was conceived by Peter Saville and designed by Four23.
The title was thought of by lead singer Andy McCluskey after he took his daughter to an art exhibition called 'The History of Modernism'.
A free download demo track taken from the album called "Sister Marie Says" was released on 25 November 2009. Elements of the song were originally composed in 1981 and a reworked version of the track was due to appear on the 1996 album Universal but got shelved because it sounded too much like early OMD and was out of step with the more reflective tone of Universal. The second song to be played from the album was "History of Modern pt.2". The song was played on 31 May 2010 on BBC 6 Music, the title of the song was revealed on the shows web page a week before the broadcast. In an interview during the show the band confirmed the album would have two songs named "History of Modern" on it and plans to change the name of the one of the songs to "The Big Bang Theory" had apparently been scrapped. The first single from the album, "If You Want It", was released on 6 September 2010.
