Former Depeche Mode keyboardist Alan Wilder is set to bring his experimental electronica outfit Recoil to North and South America on October 16th for a lengthy fall tour dubbed “A Strange Hour” in support of the recently released Recoil Selected (classics) compilation.

Of Selected, which features the ever brilliant and frightening Diamanda Galás, Curve’s Toni Halliday, Douglas McCarthy of Nitzer Ebb and Maggie Estep among others, Wilder has said: “The collection is made up of my personal favorites, remastered and edited together into what I consider a cohesive and total listening experience.” For a taste, check out the album’s “Prey” (Shotgun Mix) right here.

Selected is available as a download and a two-disc package. The limited edition four-disc box sets and vinyl copies have now sold out. In other Recoil news, the group’s official iPhone app is now available.
