Depeche Mode Release “Where’s The Revolution” Video

New Studio Album Spirit Available Globally on March 17th on Columbia Records; Pre-Order Available Now
(Columbia Records; New York, NY; February 9, 2017) – Iconic, multi-platinum selling musical pioneers Depeche Mode have debuted the music video for their new single “Where’s The Revolution” today. Watch the video, directed by the band’s longtime creative collaborator, Dutch photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn, here: http://smarturl.it/WTRvideo

Following in Depeche Mode’s tradition of releasing forward thinking, cinematic videos, “Where’s the Revolution” is threaded with a dystopian vibe, punctuated by a muted color scheme and an army of marching dancers. Set in a harsh industrial landscape, the video provides a perfect visual commentary for what Dave Gahan referred to in a recent Rolling Stone interview as an album “…about humanity, and our place in that".

The release of the video follows a major social media announcement yesterday that the band will be handing over their Facebook page to their fans for a year.  Any fan interested in becoming the page’s administrator for a day can now apply at takeover.depechemode.com. The band will be recruiting hundreds of curators from their diverse fan base – one curator per day for 365 days.

Where’s The Revolution” is the first new music from the band in four years and the first offering from their upcoming album, Spirit.  Available now for preorder, Spirit will be released digitally and physically worldwide as a standard 12 track album on March 17th on Columbia Records.  The band will also release a 2-CD Deluxe version of the album featuring a special 28-page booklet of exclusive artwork and photos, along with 5 remixes created by Depeche Mode, Matrixxman and Kurt Uenala, collectively entitled the ‘Jungle Spirit Mixes’.  The vinyl version of Spirit will be released on two 180 gram LPs, featuring the standard album and a special SPIRIT etching on the 4th side.

Spirit marks the band’s first collaboration with producer James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco (Foals, Florence & The Machine, Arctic Monkeys) and serves as the follow up to the band’s blockbuster 2013 album Delta Machine which debuted at #1 in 12 countries.  The album has already garnered critical acclaim in early previews, with Q Magazine calling Spirit “the most energized Depeche Mode album in years”.

Depeche Mode will support the release of the LP with an extensive world tourgiving both new and lifelong fans alike a chance to experience the band’s stunning live shows. The first leg of theGlobal Spirit Tour, on sale now, will see the band play to over 1.5 million fans at 34 shows in 21 countries throughout Europe.
