Depeche Mode are sharing the video for “Wagging Tongue,” off their latest album Memento Mori which was released in March via Columbia Records.

The Sacred Egg directed the video, with creative direction by Anton Corbijn. According to a press release, the video is “set in a cinematic universe where rules governing interpersonal communication are strict and surreal.. it tells the story of a young couple from a small remote village who join their neighbors for a confrontational ritual—one that draws in participants from all walks of life: lawyers, businessmen, priests, policemen, even Martin Gore and Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode.”

Memento Mori is the first album from Depeche Mode to be released since the death of the band’s Andy ‘Fletch’ Fletcher, who passed away in May 2022 at age 60.  Fletcher did work on the album before his death.
