Depeche Mode 2013

Yes yes yes!! I'm soo soo soo excited DM is back with a new album and a new tour on it's way!! You can't believe how effing excited I am! *"I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough"*
I missed the last tour so I'm definetly prepared for this one!
Last tour I missed out so I vowed I will see them upfront and personal at least once! I'll be attending both LA and maybe one in San Diego I'm hoping they'll add a Anaheim or Las Vegas show too.

 Plus there album is better than ever!!
The album is set to release this upcoming tuesday March 26th, 2013 and though I've heard a few new songs I'm waiting until I actually have the album in my hands which by my lucky stars I won in a KROQ radio contest!! I'm loving the bluesy sound and heavy draggy synths, it defiantly has a throwback feel to their Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion albums. So far I've heard these songs and they're my favorite, especially "Should Be Higher".

Should Be Higher

Not only is the album coming out including ticket sale dates there are a ton of DM/Strangelove Parties to attend too!

I'll  be here early, dressed in leather and black and ready to party!

I wish I could be here this night, but I'll be in Las Vegas for a Rockabilly Festival.

Depeche Mode Afterparty atb one of my favorite Downtown LA venues with Strangelove, 
Hell yes I'm There!!

I can go on and on and on, But check it out for yourself and let the DM Devotional madness begin!!
I'm soo ready!!!
Be sure to keep up with al the latest Depeche Mode and Strangelove DM tribute news!!

Happy Birthday Violator

Depeche Mode's Violator album turns 23 today!!

Arguably the most popular DM album ever and probably my very favorite album of theirs, Depeche Mode's Violator was released 23 years ago today. This was the first album in which I first heard and discovered DM and it also holds some of my very favorite DM songs (Blue Dress, Enjoy The Silence, Waiting For The Night and their B-sides Happiest Girl, Sea of Sin & Dangerous). I hold this album very near and dear to me because I feel a special connection with it, the month of it's release I was conceived, I was born a day after the single for WFTN and we arrived the same year! I've been saying for years how I want the rose tattooed on me, but I've yet to still do it. I love the artwork and imagery artist Anton Corbijn created it represents a lot for me. I've even had my 20th birthday party themed Violator and I even created a dress for my school fashion show in 2011 inspired by "Personal Jesus" and Depeche Mode!

Anywho today I decided to pay tribute to the album with my wardrobe.

I wore my faux Leather Jacket from Forever 21
Clubmaster sunglasses, I bought for $1
My DM Violator shirt from Uptown 2000
