STRANGELOVE : The Depeche Mode Experience Press Release

Direct from the USA, Strangelove recreate the sound, image and atmosphere of the band perfectly with vintage synthesizers and samplers. Furthermore, former Depeche member Alan Wilder provided Strangelove with original custom samples from Depeche Mode albums and tour catalogue to use in the show. Whilst Martin Gore has provided the Strangelove with synth programming guidance.

Strangelove play Depeche Mode’s Greatest Hits including Enjoy the Silence, Just Can’t Get Enough, Never Let Me Down, Personal Jesus, It’s No Good, Strangelove, Policy of Truth, Shake the Disease, A Question of Time and loads more.

2022 will be their second tour of Australia and it’s selling fast!

The idea of Strangelove came to Brent Meyer (Counterfeit Martin [Gore]) in 2010. Through the years the project has grown internationally in scope; and is currently stadium ready, with the help of Leo Luganskiy (Ultra Dave [Gahan]), Julian Shah-Tayler (Oscar [Alan] Wilder) and James Evans (In The Fletch [Andy Fletcher]).

With a set list that spans the DM back catalogue, from Speak & Spell through to their latest, Spirit; Strangelove have been winning fans and respect from all corners of the music world. But it was perhaps their 2021 appearance on NBC’s “Clash of the Cover Bands” that has seen their international fan base grow. The premise of the Jimmy Fallon produced hit show is- two bands of a similar musical genre go head-to-head over two rounds to see which band has the most entertaining cover performance for a cash prize and bragging rights.

Strangelove won their episode ‘Clash of the 80s Rockers’ hands down over a Poison tribute act and won $10,000. Judges Adam Lambert and Meghan Trainor heaped lavish praise upon their performance. No surprise really, when you learn that some of Strangelove’s members are classically trained musicians and in-demand record producers; collaborating with band members from such iconic artists as: Bauhaus, The Cure, Eurythmics, Love & Rockets, David Bowie, The Mission, Morrissey, Billy Idol, Beck, Ladytron, etc.

For Strangelove, they view Depeche Mode’s canon with objectivity and respect.

To date Depeche Mode have sold over 120 million records worldwide, released 14 studio albums and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2020. With doubt cast on whether the original band will perform any time soon after the sad news of founder Andy Fletcher’s death in May 2022, Strangelove is the near-best Depeche Mode experience for any fan.

Counterfeit Martin notes, “It’s nice we fill in the gaps of the Depeche Mode’s tour schedule. Fans are very appreciative that they get to witness a classic Depeche Mode focused show, featuring many fan-favorite songs the band themselves haven’t played in decades.”

Martin Gore of Depeche Mode says, himself: “They do it to such fine detail that’s it’s scary. They’re obviously big fans. I’ve seen quite a few videos online. They play to very big crowds. They have videos that they’ve made, screens behind them, it’s like a full on production. I think they’re fulfilling a fan’s needs by being there when we’re not on tour. Keeping the fans satiated while we’re taking a break. ”
