Depeche Mode premiered the official video for their new single "Where's The Revolution" today. Directed by Anton Corbijn, the politically charged video is the band's statement on "humanity and our place in that" and was shot in black and white with red accents (an effect previously seen in 1987's "Strangelove").
View the video and read Depeche Mode's commentary below:
"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."
Depeche Mode's new studio album Spirit will be released March 17th. Pre-order options are provided here.
Finally, Depeche Mode are giving fans the opportunity to run their official Facebook page for a day. Details on that are posted here. [Use Facebook at your own risk.]
