Faith And Devotion Ian Gittins
Gittin’s book takes you on a researched journey through the Basildon boys’ rise from all-electronic, anti-rock cliche entity to elegantly wasted dons of debauchery with the world at their feet, adopting an accessible, easy-to-navigate album-by-album trip through their discography complete, with recording dates/venues, chart positions, tracklistings, etc. Of course, this will allow readers to dip in and out, depending on which version of Depeche they favour.

In terms of backstory, which is interwoven with in-depth behind-the-scenes recollection of each album, the years in which they produced their greatest works. As well as being transitional musically, with the band swapping their synths for an industrial rockish approach. Gittins also explores the changes in the group dynamic and how close the band came to falling apart due to personal issues consuming its members, most natably, Dave Gahan’s drug addiction. Moreover, you’ll be happy to see the evolution of their strong visual identity over their career through groundbreaking photos.

Too Much Botox? Watch The Weeknd’s Shocking Video “Save Your Tears”

too much botox the weeknd
Beyond doubt, some cosmetic procedures can improve your looks. However, too much Botox can disfigure your face. That’s probably the case of Abel Tesfaye aka The Weeknd who reappears in his new music video with a shocking appearance. The latest single he is promoting with this clip is called “Save Your Tears, another singalong anthem featuring epic synths. Some of his fans believe this is a response to the Grammys, taking into account the artist’s discontent.

Last November, the 30-year-old singer claimed on Twitter that the awards show is corrupted. With this in mind, it is public knowledge that he wasn’t nominated, but I also think this is kinda suspicious because his recent Electro-Pop tunes are pretty addictive (In Your Eyes, Blinding Lights). Anyway, feel free to interpret the visuals below as you wish. Likewise, if you want to find out why too much Botox looks bad, watch this video.
