The album features a varied selection of vocalists including Diamanda Galás, Joe Richardson, Douglas McCarthy, Samantha Coerbell, Toni Halliday and Maggie Estep.

In support of the album, Recoil has announced details of an Events tour, A Strange Hour with Alan Wilder & Paul Kendall, with dates across Europe and in the US between March & May.

Alan Wilder’s years in the music industry have seen him go from studio assistant to session keyboard player, but it was his 14 years as a member of Depeche Mode where he really honed his skills. With his attention to detail in the studio, Wilder pushed the boundaries even within the restrictive climate of commercial pop. Alan recently rejoined Depeche Mode at the Royal Albert Hall in London for one song, the first time he has played with them in over 15 years. As an antidote to the demands of the Mode, his studio project Recoil was born in the mid-eighties.  Two albums were released: ‘Hydrology (1988) and ‘Bloodline (1990) both giving an indication of his expanding horizons.  After his departure from Depeche Mode in 1995, Wilder resurrected Recoil full-time and has since released ‘Unsound Methods’ (1997), ‘Liquid’ (2000) and most recently ‘subHuman’ (2007).
