Depeche Mode Drops New Single "Where's the Revolution" [LISTEN]

Depeche Mode's form of electronic melancholia has been a powerful force in the popularization of synth-based music since the band's formation in 1980.

Earlier this week, the masterminds behind timeless hits like "Personal Jesus" and "Enjoy the Silence" shared details about their upcoming 14th studio album, Spirit. The first studio release since the trio released Delta Machine in 2013. Spirit will hit music providers everywhere on March 17th, but there's no need to wait to hear new material. Depeche Mode have just dropped their new brooding political single "Where's the Revolution" that's a call to action to the public to challenge the systems in place that seek to keep societies submissive.

With references to "patriotic junkies", Depeche Mode has focused this latest musical effort towards the American public.

They manipulate and threaten / With terror as a weapon / Scare you till you're stupefied / Wear you down until you're on their side

Spirit will release on March 17th via Sony Records, follow the link to grab your pre-order!
