âWAGGING TONGUEâ VIDEOÂ LIVE NOW
The Sacred Egg-Directed Clip Explores Dynamics of Interpersonal Communication
Depeche Mode has unveiled the starkly beautiful and intensely provocative video for âWagging Tongue,â the second visual interpretation of a track from its universally acclaimed 15th studio album, Memento Mori (Columbia Records).
Directed by The Sacred Egg with creative direction by longtime Depeche Mode collaborator Anton Corbijn, the âWagging Tongueâ video is set in a cinematic universe where rules governing interpersonal communication are strict and surreal. âWagging Tongueâ tells the story a young couple from a small remote village who join their neighbors for a confrontational ritualâone that draws in participants from all walks of life: lawyers, businessmen, priests, policemen, even Martin Gore and Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode.
The result is thought-provoking, visually compelling and perfectly complementary to the song, of which Rolling Stone coincidentally wrote “the words have a way of sticking in your brainâ and Pitchfork praised as “the dawn of a new dynamic.” To immerse yourself in the underwater words and world of âWagging Tongue,â go to: https://depechemode.lnk.to/waggingtongue
The Gore/Gahan co-written âWagging Tongueâ has been a nightly highlight of Depeche Mode’s Memento Mori World Tour, currently in the midst of a Europe/UK stadium run that began May 16th in Amsterdam.
