Depeche Mode appeared on The Late, Late Show with James Corden last night and played their latest single "Where's The Revolution." If you missed their splendid performance, check it out below. Besides the cool and vibey awesomeness of the performance, the real highlight was Dave Gahan rocking some killer boots. CBS totally dropped the ball by not zooming in to give the world a closer look.

Happy 70th Birthday to the one and only Iggy Pop. Kick back with some vintage concert footage of the legend in action, plus view the inspirational lecture Iggy delivered as part of BBC Radio 6's John Peel Lecture series.












Happy Birthday to The Cure's Robert Smith. The legend is 58 years old today!










Mark Lanegan returns with his new album Gargoyle on April 28th. Today the legend shared the video for the album's epic and insanely catchy lead single "Beehive." Check it out down below.

Lanegan's 10th solo album features several guests including Greg Dulli, Josh Homme, and Duke Garwood (all three musicians have collaborated with Lanegan previously). Lanegan also reveals the dark and vibey record came together rather quickly -- about a month -- which he owes to having become a better songwriter:

"I definitely feel like I’m a better songwriting than I was 15 years ago...I don’t know if I’m just kidding myself or what, but it’s definitely easier now to make something that is satisfying to me. Maybe I’m just easier on myself these days, but it’s definitely not as painful a process, and therefore I feel I’m better at it now. But part of the way that I stay interested in making music is by collaborating with other people. When I see things through somebody else’s perspective it’s more exciting than if I’m left to my own devices."

Pre-order Gargoyle from Amazon or Lanegan's store
