Around late March, I had one of those random memories – I thought back to a rehearsal for Snakebite, the Whitesnake tribute band I was playing in with Mike Tirelli (Holy Mother, Messiah’s Kiss, Rising Five) where Mike asked the band to do this Depeche Mode song. On a lark, I contacted Mike and asked him if I did a track for this song if he’d sing on it. He graciously said yes, and this snowball started rolling.
Mike did a version of this with Messiah’s Kiss last year, but we kinda took it in a different direction. I really enoyed putting this one together, and Mike is just insanely good on it.
