More tours, and I miss Failure.

Nada Surf do "Enjoy the Silence".  All this reminds me of is Failure's version and after that I went on a huge google adventure trying to see what the bands are doing at the moment.  It also reminded me of the last versions of the touring Lollapalooza.  Tool were headlining and Failure were also on the bill.  Do to someone backing out, Failure opened up the main stage and then 4 or 5 hours later they headlined the second stage.  First and last time I have ever seen the same band play twice on the same day.


A Pair of DM Collaborations

DEPECHE MODE songwriter, Martin Gore has completed a remix from Ken Andrews' band, ON. Andrews has been working on his solo project since his departure from FAILURE last year. The remix will be on a promo-only single, Shifting Skin, out April 4th. The album will be released soon after and has been recorded mostly by Andrews with help from members of Blinker the Star, Medicine, and God Lives Underwater. Alan Wilder (ex-Depeche Mode keyboardist) will be releasing a RECOIL album on March 7th titled Liquid.


Depeche Mode Tribute Album

The Cure, Failure, Smashing Pumpkins, Meat Beat Manifesto, and the Deftones are just a few artists who have contributed to the upcoming Depeche Mode tribute album entitled, "For the Masses". 1500 Records is planning on releasing the compilation on August 4th.
