Depeche Mode Offshoot Recoil Announce Tour and iPhone App
Alan Wilder, formerly of Depeche Mode and now recording as Recoil, will bring 'A Strange Hour' to select cities across the US, Canada, and South America. For fans to get the most up-to-date news and info, a new Recoil iPhone App is now available.
The Recoil app allows you to follow Alan's activities and fans' thoughts & musings while Recoil is on the road or in the studio. As a hub for Recoil's social networking, there is also access to photos, videos, audio and Alan's concepts behind each of his albums. The app is free and available now from the iTunes store.
Recoil Selected, a brand new selection of classic Recoil tracks, is out now. Alan Wilder, who chose the track listing, explains, "The collection is made up of my personal favorites, remastered and edited together into what I consider a cohesive and total listening experience." The album features a varied selection of vocalists including Diamanda Galαs, Joe Richardson, Douglas McCarthy (Nitzer Ebb), Nicole Blackman, Samantha Coerbell, Toni Halliday (Curve) and Maggie Estep. Recoil Selected is available to download and as 1CD and 2CD editions. Limited edition deluxe 4-disc box set and a vinyl edition have both now sold out.
During his 14 years as a member of Depeche Mode, as well as being an accomplished solo musician, Alan really honed his skills in the studio. With his attention to detail, Wilder pushed the boundaries even within the restrictive climate of commercial pop. As an antidote to the demands of the Mode, his studio project Recoil was born in the mid-eighties. Two albums were released: 'Hydrology' (1988) and 'Bloodline' (1990) both giving an indication of his expanding horizons. After his departure from Depeche Mode in 1995, Wilder resurrected Recoil full-time and has since released 'Unsound Methods' (1997), 'Liquid' (2000) and 'subHuman' (2007).
