Hanging in the 'Balance'

Depeche Mode have a new record coming out... and a tour, which includes dates at Madison Square Garden this September, to support the release. (Tix went on sale today.) The video here is from 1983 — "Get the Balance Right."

Depeche mode on sociopolitics and dissemination of information, 31 years ago from "new dress":

You can't change the world
But you can change the facts
And when you change the facts
You change points of view
If you change points of view
You may change a vote
And when you change a vote
You may change the world

Their new song is great by the way, and maybe this is biased from a middle ager, but the best music today are being made by bands in their 50's and pushing 60. Depeche, New Order, Metallica and Megadeth. The kids today really need to grow some balls or need a swift kick to them, because they are not rocking hard enough.

If there is a need for political hard charging music it's now. Actually in 2015 at the start of Manifest Trump.
