Martin Gore has just released an animated video for "Europa Hymn", directed by London based collective M-I-E. You can watch it above.
Out on April 28th via Mute is the new solo album by Martin Gore, songwriter and founding member of Depeche Mode. Titled "MG" it holds 16 electronic instrumental tracks. Written and produced by Martin Gore, "MG" was recorded following the final dates of Depeche Mode’s Delta Machine tour in March 2013 at Gore's home studio in Santa Barbara. After finishing recording "MG", Martin asked Q to mix it. Q previously mixed VCMG's (Martin Gore and Vince Clarke) 2012 album, "SSSS".
"Europa Hymn" is the first taste of "MG" which has been served to the press (and is of course leaking everywhere), and after having listened to it, it seems that especially analog synth fans might like it. So don't expect anything similar to his "Counterfeit" albums but rather material that is way more basic.
The album will be out as download (get it here on iTunes), CD (buy it here) and also as a limited 3-disc vinyl boxset (you can buy it right here).
The track listing:
- Europa Hymn

Drama in industrial internet land. Laibach has decided to remove all support bands from its US bills. It was already clear weeks ago that Laibach requested to perform with no industrial bands on this tour (with the exception of Ministry). One of those bands who got the boot is Cocksure.
Times, they are changing. (...)

Tolchock consists of Jens Persson, Christer Lundmark, Michael Forslund and Jenny Runa. The band hit the scene in 1998 when they released "In The Name Of Tolchock" on the cult Swedish label Energy Rekords. (...)

"In mutual agreement Hooverphonic and Noémie Wolfs have decided to end their collaboration." That is what can be read on Hooverphonic's Facebook page. The three upcoming concerts will be the final shows with Noémie Wolfs. Wolfs has only been 5 years with the band, but never succeeded in letting us forget Geike Arnaert. Arnaert from her side left the band in 2008. Before Arnaert joined the band in 1998 Hooverphonic had already worked with Esther Lybeert, Liesje Sadonius and Kyoko Baertsoen. (...)

Out on Anachron Sounds (and available here in pre-order) by mid May is the newest VNV Nation album "Resonance". Years in the planning, the album features many of the best known VNV Nation songs, performed purely with orchestra and voice. No other studio instruments were used as the goal was to be as au- hentic as possible.
The album was recorded with the world renowned Babelsberg Film Orchestra, at their historic studios in Potsdam, just outside Berlin, next to the stage where legendary movies like Fritz Lang’s "Metropolis" were filmed. For a limited time, it will be available in a special CD-digibook format, and then (once sold out) as a regular CD- digipak. You get that limited CD-digibook format right here!
"Resonance" will also be available as a deluxe limited edition vinyl/CD boxset. This boxset contains 6 x 10inch vinyl discs, plus the CD of the album and a 32 page book. All this is coming packed inside a heavy hardcover box with gold print. The vinyl edition also contains the exclusive bonus-track "If I was" on the 6th 10” Vinyl! You can order this very limited gem right here!
Tracks included on the CD are:
